Napoleon, Barrie’s prominent local manufacturer and retailer of quality grills and fireplaces, as well as heating and cooling solutions, is adding positions across the company.

“This is a large scale hire across all areas of the company,” said Stephen Schroeter, senior vice-president of the Napoleon Group of Companies. “Napoleon is growing quickly, creating dozens of opportunities in all aspects of our company including research and development, quality assurance, human resources, manufacturing, engineering and information systems, just to name a few.”
