$30m Upgrade to Drive Blue Power Expansion

Soap and lumber manufacturer, Blue Power Group is looking to expand its market to include Cuba and Venezuela.

Chairman of the company, Dr. Dhiru Tanna, says attempts will be made to do so on completion of a $30-million upgrade in production facilities and warehouse space.

The upgrade will see the company reorganising its production facilities at Victoria Avenue in Kingston and the addition of an extra line for bathing soaps.

A new warehouse space is also set to be added to a lot next door, while the company makes efforts to streamline the production of its laundry soap line.

Dr. Tanna says this expansion into new markets as well as the performance of markets already captured are expected to boost export sales to roughly 25 per cent.
