WHAT WE HAVE ACHIEVED AS A COMMUNITY WITH VALE

The town of Long Harbour-Mount Arlington Heights (LH-MAH) has distinguished itself as a resilient, proud and determined community. Residents of this place have always stood-up and stood-out. This is a community that achieves its goals, often against tremendous odds. Our community has a history of being builders, and doers, gifted with skills and determination. Ours is a proud community with a very bright future.

Being the home of the new Vale nickel processing plant is an accomplishment that LHDC is proud of. This achievement represents years of perseverance and vision that has breathed new life into our community and the region’s economy. LHDC, working in cooperation with the town, expended considerable corporate energy on a community based needs assessment in anticipation of new economic and community development opportunities resulting from the Vale initiative.

When in operation, this highly technical, leading edge, nickel processing plant will be a global leader directly employing approximately 500 people within the plant’s operations, and hundreds of jobs in plant support positions. Procurement expenditures to support plant operations are estimated at $125 – $150 million annually throughout the life of the project, unadjusted for inflation.

The Long Harbour Development Corporation believes that when it comes to efficiency and cost effectiveness in delivering client services, proximity has its advantages. We are home of the Vale Hydromet Nickel Processing Plant – if you are thinking about the Vale opportunity – think Long Harbour.
