Quebec clothing company expands in Colebrook

COLEBROOK — Codet Inc., a third-generation family business with headquarters in Coaticook, Quebec, plans to build an 11,500-square-foot addition to its manufacturing facility in Colebrook and hire 25 new employees, the state announced Monday.

Codet, a manufacturer of workwear that expanded to the North Country in 1992, makes apparel for its three brands, Big Bill Protective Apparel, Big Bill Workwear and Wood’N Trail for Outdoor Apparel.

“Codet considered other states for its expansion, but the company decided to stay and grow in New Hampshire because of Colebrook’s quality labor force and the state’s low taxes,” said Michael Bergeron, business development manager for the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development, in a news release.
Beno Lamontagne, the North Country’s business retention specialist for the division, has worked with Codet since the company moved to Colebrook.

“Colebrook’s strong cultural ties to Quebec and the town’s business friendly climate demonstrate that we welcome Quebec companies with open arms,” Lamontagne said in the release.
The expansion will be completed by the end of the year, state economic development officials said.
