New manager joins Atlantic Store Decor

Nov 19 2003

Greg Jobe has started work as the new plant manager for Atlantic Store Decor's 85,000 square foot facility at Pooles Corner. "I am very pleased that Greg has accepted our offer to run the Plant," said Tim Banks, "and I am confident in Greg's ability to lead Atlantic Store Décor to more expansion in Kings County and growth in our production."

Mr. Jobe is originally from Cape Breton. He is an industrial and mechanical engineer with over 15 years of experience in manufacturing facilities. He has previously worked in woodworking with Shaw Wood Industries which manufactures furniture for the IKEA chain. Most recently, he held a senior position with McCain Foods Limited.

"I went to university on the Island and also worked with Cavendish Farms here," said Greg, "and I really appreciate the lifestyle and people here. Atlantic Store Décor has a great reputation for creating high quality millwork and metalwork and I hope I can build on that reputation. People in Kings County have a great attitude and tremendous skills and I want to tap into this workforce to bring even more growth to our business."

Mr. Jobe's wife, Colette (Lacey), is from the Sturgeon area. They have three children Anastasia, 9, Laurena, 6, and James, 3. They will be residing in the Montague area, near both the Pooles Corner facility and Colette's family.

"My wife grew up here and went to school here," Greg said, "and her family still lives in the area. We are really looking forward to raising our kids here and being involved in the local community. The Montague area has experienced major growth in the last few years and I think Atlantic Store Décor can play an even bigger role in the life of this community."

Atlantic Store Décor fabricates high-quality handcrafted store fixtures and retail display units in their facility at Pooles Corner. They specialize in wood, but also use composites and metal. Atlantic Store Décor is a member of APM.
