Marshall Canada wins award for contribution to New Brunswick growth and investment
At the 2023 Export Awards earlier this week, Marshall Canada was recognised for its impact within the New Brunswick community and economy.
The Export Awards, organised by economic development agency Opportunities NB, are hosted annually to celebrate the business savvy, entrepreneurial spirit, and innovation of businesses located in the province that have achieved either recent and/or ongoing success in developing new markets.
This year Marshall Canada won the Opportunities NB Impact Award, which recognizes a company making a significant impact on New Brunswick’s economy through reinvestment and commitment to growth. The winners were selected by a volunteer panel of business experts from academia and the private sector through a scoring system. The award was accepted by Marshall Land Systems Managing Director Gary Moynehan.
"It's an honour to receive this award in recognition of our commitment to Canada, our second home market," commented Gary. "New Brunswick is a fantastic site for our operation, and we are proud to be part of this incredible community. We hope to continue to boost the province over the long term by driving sustained growth and international investment."
“It's amazing to see the number of exceptional companies operating in New Brunswick continue to grow,” said Steve Milbury, Vice President of Business Development for Opportunities NB. “Marshall Land Systems is a major player in the aerospace and defence sectors and seeing them win the Impact Award at last night’s Export Awards Gala helps highlight the potential they bring for our province. I look forward to seeing their business expand to become a significant exporter for New Brunswick.”
This year will mark the start of operations at Marshall Land Systems' new 82,000 square foot facility in Moncton, New Brunswick. The facility will produce a range of specialist containers to support the North American and International Markets, starting with the Dutch Armed Forces Production containers under the Defensiebrede Vervanging Operationele Wielvoertuigen (DVOW) and Netherlands Specialised Containers (NLSC) contracts, which will ultimately be deployed to support Royal Netherlands Army missions around the world.
Based on its current expectations, Marshall anticipates that it will boost New Brunswick’s fabricated metal manufacturing sector GDP as well as driving export revenues to help address the province’s trade deficit in the sector. Similarly, if it is able to capitalize on a number of key domestic and international defence procurement programs, Marshall expects to be generating as many as 500 direct and indirect jobs in the province before the end of the decade.
