The new facility, spanning 71,000 square feet, will specialize in producing battery insulation panels and cell sheets for EVs. It’s expected to open in June 2024 and will create 144 new jobs in the region.
Various machines will be used to produce insulation panels and cell sheets required for EV batteries, including pressure moulding and sensor cutting machines, tape assembly lines, silicon pad cutting machines, packing automation lines, and 3D measuring equipment.
As part of this investment, the government is providing $1.5 million in funding through the Regional Development Program’s Southwestern Ontario Development Fund.
