Dieffenbacher creating jobs in Windsor
Company Confident About Ontario’s Future
Dieffenbacher North America Inc., a manufacturer of wood products and lightweight composite components for the automotive industry, announced plans to build two new advanced machining centres in Windsor. The company's $8-million investment offers the capability to machine large, high quality precision parts up to 240 tons in weight.
The machining centres will:
- use new weight-reducing technologies for automotive components
- contribute to potential fuel savings for the transportation industry and for consumers
- offer a greater variety of machining capabilities to the North American market and
- support jobs for Ontario manufacturers in gas, oil and mining projects.
Ontario supports investment and job creation by:
- investing in education and skills training
- keeping taxes competitive
- partnering with business
- investing in infrastructure and
- developing a modern economy through innovation.
- Approximately 70 per cent of all engineered wood boards manufactured in North America are produced on Dieffenbacher equipment.
- Approximately 75 per cent of the average motor vehicle's fuel consumption is directly related to its weight. Lighter automotive components help to produce better gas mileage.
“Dieffenbacher is making a statement that it is confident about Ontario's future by investing in state-of-the-art machining that is innovative and beneficial for manufacturers, business and consumers.”
“Dieffenbacher's groundbreaking technology will contribute to growth not only in Windsor-Essex, but across the province.”
