Cambium Peterborough’s new home at 194 Sophia Street was once the home of the infamous Fisher Gauge Ashburnham Plant.
Fisher Gauge, later FisherCast Global, was founded in 1942, as a manufacturer of tools, gauges and diecast metal products at times employing approximately 300 people in Peterborough.
In more recent years, 194 Sophia has been home to Operitel and OpenText, both software management companies.
As we transform this building from its historic use to an environmental and cleantech future, we will strive to continuously support Peterborough and its community in a similar way.
We are excited that the opportunity to move came upon us and that Cambium can still operate in the vibrant East City community. Our move from 52 Hunter Street East office isn’t a far trek for us thankfully.
Sustainability is a part of our mission here at Cambium. It is engrained in the work we do for our clients, but we also hold ourselves accountable. We are dedicated to operating in the most environmentally sustainable way possible. Remodelling the building made more sense to us than tearing it down. With our renovations, we have been able to rejuvenate the building, and have created a bright open space for our staff and visitors.
Be sure to keep an eye out for future posts on the updates we have made to the building, such as our lab and office space!
