Dynament Corporation a privately held electro-surgical device manufacturing company is setting up shop in Amhertsburg by the end of this year. The manufacturing facility will be located at 99 Thomas Road and leased from the Town of Amherstburg.

Dynament was formed in 2010 and received investments from Canadian and Overseas investors, and current operations in China and Michigan.

Their products are being sold in China and Europe with a current focus on developing the U.S. market place. Dynament manufactures products for minimally invasive surgery and is used for laparoscopic, cosmetic surgery and vessel sealing.

Steve Livneh, President and CEO of Dynament Corporation stated “We have been searching for a location to grow our operations. We have focused on Amherstburg, Ontario for being the ideal location for our industry, due to its vicinity to the Canada-USA border, reasonable tax base, offering fair cost of living and for being an exemplary safe and friendly community.”

Once the manufacturing facility is in full production 25 to 30 jobs will be created in the first year. An additional 10 to 20 are expected to be created in year two. They anticipate that by the end of year three there will be a total of 80 jobs, consisting of engineers, technicians, assemblers and quality control staff.

The company credits the significant guidance and support that they have received from the both Economic Development Corporation and officials from the Town of Amherstburg in moving forward with their investment.

“This is an important industry and we are actively taking steps to strengthen the life sciences sector in the region. This investment fits in very well with the expertise in precision manufacturing and furthers our intention to diversify the Windsor-Essex economy with additional areas of manufacturing.” added Sandra Pupatello, CEO of the WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation.
