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.

Quick Facts

  • 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.
