Province Partners with Evotech Industrial Coatings to Help Create Jobs
The province’s partnership with Evotech Industrial Coatings has helped relocate its manufacturing operations to Ontario and expand its business, creating 20 new jobs in Cornwall.
Evotech Industrial Coatings is a leading manufacturer of industrial coatings used in a variety of products such as doors, windows, commercial vehicles and heavy equipment. Based in Quebec, the company has established a new manufacturing facility in Ontario with support from the province.
The new facility is equipped with innovative technology to develop and manufacture environmentally friendly and more sustainable water-based products. Cornwall is also a strategic location for the company to reach its North American customer base.
Investing in manufacturing is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“More and more customers want environmentally friendly products. That’s why it’s crucial for us to focus on developing more sustainable and innovative products. With Ontario’s support, our strategically located facility in Cornwall will offer premium products, allowing our company to enter new markets and become more competitive.”
