The Ontario government announced recently that it will help Brose Canada create and retain 710 jobs in the province. Brose is a partner to the international automobile industry and delivers systems for vehicle doors, liftgates, seat structures and electric drives worldwide to approximately 80 automobile brands and more than 30 suppliers.
This investment, provided through the Southwestern Ontario Development Fund, will help Brose Canada acquire new, state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment to attract new business, increase exports and compete in new markets.
The province is providing a grant of just over $1 million to support Brose Canada’s significant investment in this project.
“We are committed to strategic partnerships like this one that help create jobs across the province. We know our investments through programs like the Southwestern Ontario Development Fund are sustaining thousands of jobs and creating new jobs in every region,” said Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario.
“We are pleased to partner with the Ontario government to grow our business of manufacturing and supplier market for the automotive industry. The support…will help us reach further growth in the seat market in North America,” said Steve Wilkins, general manager, Brose Canada.
