Quebec e-cigarette company expands to New Hampshire
COLEBROOK, N.H. (AP) - An electronic cigarette company in Quebec is expanding its operations to Colebrook, New Hampshire.
Vaporium Inc. plans to open at the end of the month in 7,500 square feet of manufacturing space at the Colebrook Industrial Park. It plans to hire at least 10 workers by early 2015.
Vaporium President Sylvain Longpre says he chose Colebrook because it is business friendly and close to his office in Sherbrooke, Quebec. He says New Hampshire has low taxes and available labor.
A business development manager for the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development says the company worked with local and state officials for about a year.
