Valid Manufacturing celebrates growth

A Salmon Arm manufacturing company has broken the 100 employee mark and is celebrating its growth.

Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo visited Valid Manufacturing in Salmon Arm’s Industrial Park this week to discuss Valid’s recent success providing custom electronic, mechanical and electrical engineering and manufacturing solutions for several diverse markets.

“Jobs and potential for the future are always a welcome story in the Shuswap, and the province,” stated Kyllo, also Official Opposition Critic for Jobs, Trade and Technology. “It was satisfying to view not only their diversity, but their understanding and responsiveness to the rapid changes in the marketplace.”

Valid Manufacturing works in multiple industries, including the film industry, highways, forestry and custom coaches.

In the 27 years it has been in operation, Valid has experienced rapid growth and now employs more than 100 staff throughout four facilities totaling more than 90,000 sq. ft.
