Rose Integration, a tool and die shop that has been operating in Carleton Place since the early 1980s is set to shut down, according to a report by CTV News.
It’s estimated around 50 people will be losing their jobs.
Rose Integration president Tom Neilson told CTV News the business has been sold to a new owner, who is choosing to close the facility.
In a statement to CTV News, Neilson wrote: “When you are given an opportunity to buy or sell a company, you have to make a decision, and mine was to sell.”
It’s unclear at this point what the date of the closure will be.
The company was an AS9100D certified machine shop, specializing in precision multi-axis machining, outside processing and complex mechanical assembly.
One of the largest precision-machining suppliers in Eastern Ontario, Rose Integration had more than 30 CNC machines. That included, according to the company’s website, 15 CNC turning centers with 10 having 8 or 9 axis capability and which could feed 1.5″–4.3″ bar stock through spindle and also 16 milling centers with 3, 4, and 5 axis capability with pallet changers. Other equipment included automatic saws, part marking and deburring machines.
The company sold its manufactured goods globally and had particularly strong ties to the Aerospace and Defence sector.
The announcement comes on the heels of fellow manufacturer Arnprior Aerospace announcing it be shutting its doors in March. Between the two locations, the Ottawa Valley is losing more than 120 manufacturing jobs.
