Dorigo has officially broken ground on its new cutting-edge manufacturing facility in Burnaby's Glenlyon Business Park! In honour of this milestone, corporate parent company Pillon Holdings hosted the build team leaders - including representatives from Beedie, Christopher Bozyk Architects, and the Business Development Bank of Canada - at a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, February 4, 2019. 

The event included opening comments by Bahare Poleshuk of Beedie, after which Dorigo President Mark Pillon addressed the crowd. 

"To me, we are truly building a legacy," he remarked.  "Dorigo happens to be my mother's maiden name; when I named my first company, I named it in her honour.  My parents came to Canada as immigrants, searching for a better life, and they instilled in me the values of perseverance, dedication and commitment.  I built my companies upon those values, and upon good teamwork and adaptability.  The new Dorigo building will continue the legacy of hardwork and achievement - a legacy in which I take much pride."

Architect Christopher Bozyk delivered a toast to Dorigo, and christened the site with a celebratory glass of Prosecco, in honour of Mark's Italian heritage.

Dorigo is exited to give you a behind-the-scenes look as it brings the vision of a world-class electronics manufacturing facility to life in beautiful Burnaby, BC!  Check back here for regular updates on the Dorigo build at Glenlyon Business Park.
