Province Partnering with Triangle Fluid Controls to Help Create Jobs

Ministry of Economic Development and Growth

Ontario is partnering with Triangle Fluid Controls Ltd. to help invest in new technology and grow its business, creating 10 new jobs and retaining 25 positions in Belleville.

Triangle Fluid Controls manufactures high-performance sealing gaskets and is a leading Canadian distributor for control valves used in industrial equipment and piping systems that handle fluids or gasses.

With support from the Eastern Ontario Development Fund, the company is adding 12,600 square feet to its facility and purchasing new production and laboratory testing equipment. This will enable Triangle Fluid Controls to expand its product range and increase its export business.

Investing in Eastern Ontario businesses is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
