Summerstown ON – Ontario is helping a Summerstown company increase production and create 45 new manufacturing jobs.
With support from the province, Reynolds Food Packaging is investing to retrofit its existing facility, implement a more efficient manufacturing process and upgrade equipment. These improvements will double production capacity and help the company maintain its position as a market leader. The company produces semi-rigid plastic packaging, like those used by grocery stores for selling baked goods.
The province is providing a grant of $102,225 through the Eastern Ontario Development Fund to help the company implement the project. This investment supports the province’s five-year Open Ontario plan to create new job opportunities and promote economic growth.
