FREDERICTON (GNB) – An Acadian Peninsula-based company is entering negotiations with the provincial government to purchase a vacant building at the Bas-Caraquet Marine Centre.

“We are extremely pleased to see a local company take an interest in the vacant building to complement its existing fabrication operations,” said Justice Minister and Attorney General Andrea Anderson-Mason, who is also minister responsible for the Regional Development Corporation.

MQM Quality Manufacturing Ltd., a fabrication shop headquartered in Tracadie, has expressed interest in purchasing the building.

In December 2019, the provincial government through Provincial Holdings Ltd., issued a call for expressions of interest for an industrial building at the centre.
