Looking to improve control of its supply chain by manufacturing its industrial-grade safety products closer to home, Indiana-based Convoy Technologies has established a new manufacturing facility in Tecumseh, Ont.
Convoy Technologies is a manufacturer of industrial-grade safety products, including cameras, monitors, sensors, recording systems, and accessories, serving the Heavy Duty On- and Off-Road Industries.
The company used to manufacture its systems in China but is now leasing an 18,000 square-foot building at 2516 Binder Crescent in Tecumseh to manufacture its products. It’s hiring for 50 positions.
“If the pandemic has taught us one thing,” Convoy Technologies’ President Ron Harker said, “it is that having control over your supply chain is the key to getting products to your customers quickly and reliably. Sourcing parts closer to home and assembling them in North America will ultimately give us shorter, more predictable lead times. And it will eventually help us contain total costs, meaning our customers can count on continued supply and competitive pricing.”
The local Canadian Invest WindsorEssex Investment Attraction team began working with Convoy Technologies in September 2022 and provided valuable labor cost analysis, site selection, and introductions to post-secondary institutions.
