Construction of Empire Company’s second customer fulfillment centre in Point Claire, Que., just outside of Montréal is well underway.

The company announced plans to expand its CFC operations in 2019 to support its grocery delivery service Voilà by Sobeys.

The facility is one of possibly four the company plans to open within the next three to four years, says Michael Medline, president and CEO of Empire Company, who spoke with Grocery Business at the ribbon cutting ceremony of its Vaughan, Ont. CFC last September.

Medline says Empire believes “four of these facilities will be able to handle 90 per cent of ecommerce demand across the country. In some areas we’re not going to have a large robotic warehouse such as this one in Vaughan.”
