Goodman Manufacturing opening outlet in Brookside Business Park

  • Print

A Houston-based manufacturing company has become the first tenant in a newly-built multi-tenant industrial complex on the CentrePort inland port site.

On Thursday, Goodman Manufacturing Group will celebrate the grand opening of a 12,000-square-foot warehouse/showroom/office outlet in the Brookside Business Park — one of two major industrial parks being developed on the 20,000-acre CentrePort site on the western outskirts of Winnipeg.

Goodman’s parent company, Goodman Global Group, Inc., is one of the continent’s largest manufacturers of heating, ventilation and air conditioning products for residential and light-commercial markets.

"We had some customers in Winnipeg that we were serving from other branches but we saw an opportunity to grow our business here," Goodman branch manager Mike MacCorby said in a statement.

"We selected this location at CentrePort after several years of looking at Winnipeg real estate. It offered us the quality of facility that we were not able to find elsewhere within the city."

Goodman’s new outlet is in a 44,000-square-foot complex built by Calgary-based Olexa Developments, which is also developing the Brookside Industrial Park. It’s the first building on the CentrePort site to be built on speculation, without any tenants signed up in advance of construction getting underway.
