Transfer, growth and job creation: an important year ahead for SP Apparel and 3B Hockey

GRANBY, Jan. 29, 2019 – SP Apparel Inc. and 3B Hockey announce the acquisition of both companies by Manon Bourget and Steve Bérard, who are already co-owners, following the retirement of President and Co-Founder Serge Bérard on December 19.

Steve Bérard, CEO, joined Mrs. Bourget, Vice President Operations and a shareholder for more than a dozen years, as co-owner in 2016, in order to prepare for the transfer of the company.

The duo also expects a significant increase in production for the new year thanks to new agreements involving major players in the industry.

“The company has been expanding in recent years, but we expect accelerated growth in 2019, which will strengthen our position as the undisputed leader in hockey apparel in North America,” said Steve Bérard.

Major investments are planned for 2019 in automation and machinery acquisition, which will create about 50 jobs at the two plants. In Granby alone, there will be about 40 positions to fill, mainly day laborers, but also office jobs.
