Province Supports New Manufacturing Facility in Dundalk
Premier Doug Ford was in southern Gray County on Friday to tout the announcement of a new manufacturing facility.
The provincial government says it is supporting an investment of more than $14.8 million by Greenlid to build a new plant in Dundalk that will bring the company’s production to Ontario.
The Ontario government is providing funding of $500,000.
Greenlid makes single-use compostable products, such as plates, coffee cups and lids from fiber-based materials, according to company CEO Morgan Wyatt.
Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Rick Byers was on hand for the announcement, saying Greenlid was “an important organization in Gray Bruce that generates economic activity, with a strong focus on environment. It’s an exciting business, and we’ll watch it grow and prosper.
The investment will build a 60,000 square foot facility in Dundalk’s Southgate Eco Park.
Until now, the manufacturing of Greenlid is done in China.
By building a facility in Ontario, it would also bring the supply chain to Ontario.
