Brice & Company Ltd recently invested thousands of dollars into a product that it expects will help boost the local economy and the development of the manufacturing sector in St. Lucia.
The new Brice BZC 220 Automatic Chain Link Fence Machine might be the latest addition to Brice and Company, but it’s the first of its kind on island.
Manager of the Steel Division Winel Johnson says the purchase of fence manufacturing equipment weighing approximately 2.2 tonnes was a strategic step in the right direction not just for the company but also for St. Lucians islandwide.
According to Johnson, apart from being more affordable, having the machine encourages local hardware and construction companies to buy their material locally and when that happens the money stays in the country and helps boost the economy.
Brice and Company Ltd. specialises in roofing material and accessories, steel construction products and as of late, are the sole manufacturers for chain link fencing in St. Lucia.
