MC3 Manufacturing, a machine tool and stamping conveyor systems manufacturer that produces and installs various types of conveyor systems, is the latest Ontario manufacturer to benefit from the province’s Regional Development Program.
The company is investing $6.8 million to build a new facility in Kingsville that will house new, cutting-edge automated equipment, including a robotic powder coat painting system. With this new facility, MC3 Manufacturing will be able to increase their productivity, further develop their innovation, and provide opportunities in new markets. MC3 will create 19 new jobs through this expansion. The Ontario government is providing the company with $500,000 in funding support.
“This grant impacts our community, expands our workforce and helps us maintain a competitive edge in the global market,” said James Richards, plant manager for MC3 Manufacturing.
As part of the government’s work to build the economy, Ontario is investing more than $100 million through the Regional Development Program from 2019 to 2023 to help meet regional needs. The program provides cost-shared funding to businesses, municipalities and economic development organizations to help local communities attract investment, diversify their economies, and create jobs.
Since 2019, Ontario has provided more than $68 million in support to 62 companies and organizations through the Regional Development Program. This funding has supported $736 million in investments to create more than 1,300 jobs in the province.
