EcoPoly Properties, a manufacturer and supplier of plastic products, including films and bags for flexible packaging, is investing over $32 million. Their investment will enhance the company’s existing facility in Orillia and create 85 new, good-paying jobs for local workers.

In support of EcoPoly Properties’ investment, Ontario is providing more than $3.5 million in funding through the Southwestern Ontario Development Fund (SWODF) of the Regional Development Program.

The company’s investment will reportedly be used to acquire new equipment and automation that will increase its current production capacity and competitiveness in the North American market.

“We are proud to be a Canadian company that has been innovating and growing since our founding in 1991,” said Bryon Wolff, chief technology officer of EcoPoly Properties. “Starting from scratch in a small town in Ontario and becoming competitive globally is a truly amazing accomplishment and a testament to our people. The support we have received from the SWODF has been instrumental in the implementation of the next phase of our growth.”


“Through the Regional Development Program, our government is fostering the right conditions for manufacturers to expand their operations and create more good-paying jobs in communities across the province,” said Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade. “We are proud to support the growth of local manufacturers like EcoPoly Properties Inc. and thank them for strengthening their presence in Ontario.”

Applications for the next intake round of Ontario’s Regional Development Program funding begin on April 11, 2024, according to a press statement from the province.
