Toromont Industries Ltd. announced the construction of a new 137,000-square-foot remanufacturing facility in the town of Bradford West Gwillimbury, Ontario, Canada. This important investment will support the growing needs of its customers while creating opportunities for people and the surrounding community.
The facility is scheduled to open in early 2024 and will employ 150 skilled trades at the time of opening, with an ultimate capacity of 200.
This remanufacturing facility incorporates the latest in design and equipment to ensure the highest standards of safety, quality and production efficiency, the company said. Remanufacturing of components is a critical element of the circular economy and helps lower the lifecycle cost of customers’ equipment as well as complementing sustainability and Environmental, Social and Governance objectives.
This added capacity combined with the company’s reman operations in Québec City and Pointe-Claire, Quebec, and Thunder Bay, Ontario, will be critical to supporting the growing number of customers who have come to rely on the products the company builds. The remanufacturing operations are also a key element of supporting the value proposition of the investments customers make in equipment. They help extend the life of equipment, provide economic and environmentally sound solutions that support the industries and customers that the company serves.
Toromont’s real estate development team and consultants will continue to work closely with town staff to meet project milestones.
“This is a key element of our ongoing investments for the future benefit of our employees, our customers, our partners and our shareholders,” said Joel Couture, chief operating officer, Toromont Cat.
“The town is thrilled with Toromont’s decision to invest in our community and bring 200 well-paying jobs to Bradford West Gwillimbury,” said Rob Keffer, mayor of Bradford West Gwillimbury. “I’d like to thank the leadership team at Toromont for selecting BWG as the new home of their remanufacturing facility and we welcome them to a growing list of fantastic companies drawn to our burgeoning employment corridor along Highway 400.”
