DuROCK manufactures Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS), specialty coatings for floors and walls and specialty interior and design finishes. The Woodbridge-area company will receive $1-million to help establish a new manufacturing facility to take advantage of new infrastructure and retrofitting projects, particularly those requiring energy-efficient and non-combustible solutions, creating 20 skilled jobs.

Since November 2015, FedDev Ontario has invested almost $285 million in 75 manufacturing projects across southern Ontario.
