Toromont Industries has announced the construction of a new 137,000 square-foot remanufacturing facility in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury, Ontario.
According to the company, this investment will support the growing needs of its customers while creating opportunities for 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. It will be located on the north side of the 5th Line at Coffey Road with easy access to Hwy 400.
According to Toromont, the facility will incorporate the latest in design and equipment to ensure the highest standards of safety, quality and production efficiency. Remanufacturing of components is a critical element of the circular economy and helps lower the lifecycle cost of our customers’ equipment as well as complementing our sustainability and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) objectives.
Toromont claims that this added capacity, combined with Toromont’s Reman operations in Québec City, Pointe-Claire and Thunder Bay, will be critical in supporting the growing number of customers who rely on its products. Furthermore, the remanufacturing operations support the value proposition of the investments customers make in equipment.
“This is a key element of our ongoing investments for the future benefit of our employees, our customers, our partners and our shareholders,” explained Joel Couture, chief operating officer for 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 Bradford West Gwillimbury’s mayor, Rob Keffer. “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 Hwy 400.”
