Ontario moldmaker Weber Manufacturing investing $7.9 million to expand its plant
The project will boost the plant's capacity by approximately 30 per cent and create 17 new jobs.
With help from the Ontario government, moldmaker Weber Manufacturing Technologies is adding capacity to its production plant in Midland, Ont.
The Midland-based company, which builds tooling for the automotive and aerospace industries – including injection molders – expects overall project costs to total approximately $7.9 million.
The expansion will boost Weber’s capacity by about 30 per cent and help it increase its exports. The upgrades will also create 17 new jobs at the facility.
The Ontario government is contributing $790,000 – or one-tenth of project costs – through a Southwestern Ontario Development Fund investment.
Weber plans to complete work on the project by the end of 2020.
Founded in 1962, Weber builds molds for customers that include BMW, Mercedes, Ford, Chrysler, GM, and Boeing.
