With the help of a $300,000 federal grant, Quebec-based thermoformer JW Plastic Inc. is investing $2.3 million to improve capacity at its new aeronautics parts plant in Trois-Rivières.

Granted through the Community Adjustment Fund established under Canada’s Economic Action Plan, the repayable funding will enable JW Plastic to buy new equipment, and also create 12 new jobs over the next two years and maintain 11 existing jobs.

“Canada Economic Development is proud to support the startup of enterprises that help further the economic diversification of Quebec’s regions,” said The Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister of State for Canada Economic Development. “The arrival of JW Plastic Inc. in Trois-Rivières has given new impetus to the development of the aeronautics sector in the region.”

Founded in 2009, JW Plastic is the Canadian subsidiary of Hofolding, Germany-based Josef Weiss Plastic GmbH. The company specializes in the manufacture of clear thermoformed plastic products such as windows, windshields, and landing light protectors for use in the aeronautics sector.
