Ontario investing in advanced manufacturing in Port Colborne

Ontario is partnering with Allied Marine & Industrial Inc. to invest in a new plant and innovative technologies, creating 16 new jobs and retaining 45 positions in Port Colborne.

Allied Marine & Industrial provides technical services to both marine- and land-based industries in southern Ontario, including mechanical, machining, custom fabrication, manufacturing and field services. The company will move its tooling, machining, fabrication, assembly and storage buildings into a new state-of-the-art facility in Port Colborne with support from the province.

The facility will be equipped with new machinery and innovative technologies to expand operations and meet increased market demand in the heavy fabrication and machining sector.

Investing in advanced manufacturing is part of a plan to create jobs, grow the economy and help people in their everyday lives.

“Ontario is committed to strategic partnerships like this, which help drive economic growth and create jobs,” said Brad Duguid, Ontario Minister of Economic Development and Growth. “We are pleased to support Allied Marine & Industrial in their growth plans, which will help them increase productivity, stay competitive and create good paying jobs for Ontario families.”
