KAMLOOPS - While a rail company remains excited to announce the opening of its new B.C. headquarters in Kamloops, the prospect of hundreds of jobs will be provincewide, not just in the city.
A statement attributed to CEO Brian Cornick of Cando Rail Services says the company will be looking to hire between 100 and 150 people for a variety of services once the company is fully operational within the next two years.
As for Kamloops, Cornick says the location will employ less than 50.
The statement comes on the heels of the location announcement the company made Jan. 14 which included the sentence: The new Kamloops terminal will serve as the company’s headquarters in B.C. and once fully operational it could employ hundreds.
The company recently purchased land in the Mission Flats area where it will build the new terminal to house up to 1,000 rail cars. The lot will be used for transloading, material handling, engineering and track services in partnership with CP and CN rail.
