Premier Binns and Minister Currie Tour Pooles Corner Plant

Sep 1 2003

Pooles Corner, PEI -- Fresh off his election call, Premier Pat Binns and his Development Minister, Mike Currie were welcomed at the Atlantic Store Décor plant in Pooles Corner.

Atlantic Store Décor has been a success story for APM and for the Binns government. The plant was built in 1998 with provincial and federal government support. Rapid growth for Atlantic Store Décor and necessity for more space to start Landmark Homes saw the plant expanded from 55,000 square feet to 85,000 square feet in 2000. As one of their first campaign stops, Premier Binns and Minister Currie took the opportunity to say hello and shake the hands of some of the 115 employees. They expressed great interest in the diverse manufacturing activities within the plant. Recently, the company was proud to be involved in the construction of the new East Prince Health Facility, an initiative of the Binns government, providing all interior cabinetry and woodworking.

Atlantic Store Décor produces store fixtures and commercial and institutional cabinetry for regional and national customers. Landmark Homes produces prefabricated modular homes sold direct to the consumer in PEI, NB and NS. Both companies are part of APM of companies.
