Profine Molds Inc. (Mississauga, ON) has broken ground for a new custom-built manufacturing and R&D facility in Oakville, ON. The company expects to move into the 60,000 sq. ft. facility situated on 3.2 acres of land in August 2005.

The new building will also house R&D and injection molding testing facilities. Profine’s core business is designing and manufacturing precision molds for injection molders in the caps, closures and packaging markets. The company is active in the NAFTA region, and plans to increase its export sales.

“We are committed to retaining our core business operations and plant facilities in the greater Toronto area,” Manuel Gomes, president of Profine, said in a press release. Gomes said one of the company’s short-term goals is to hire a mechanical engineer to promote and market its in-house injection molding and design capabilities. He noted that the company’s emphasis on product development and new molding technology has resulted in three pending patents.

“We are faced with an increased requirement from our customers for lower priced molds and in order to remain competitive we must sell not only a mold, but a mold that gives the customer added value,” said Gomes.
