On Friday, Windsor Mayor Eddie Francis along with MPP Windsor-West Sandra Pupatello, Warden Tom Bain and Lindsay Boyd, Chair of the WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation (WEEDC) were joined by numerous guests from across the Windsor-Essex region to formally welcome Pristine LED Inc. to the business community with the grand opening of Pristine LED’s new 22,300 sq. ft. head office and manufacturing facility at 3215 Jefferson Boulevard.
Pristine LED manufactures and installs high-efficiency lighting for the commercial, industrial and residential markets. LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology uses up to 75% less electricity than other lighting products, while producing a more natural light. The financial and environmental benefits are rapidly making LED technology the preferred choice for new and retrofit lighting installations.
Chief Executive Officer of Pristine LED Kim Hennin says that they will be employing about 50 people for production start-up, and expect ultimately to generate 250 to 300 new jobs in the Windsor area.
”It is a great pleasure to welcome Pristine LED to our region. I am pleased that Pristine has recognized that our strategic location as the gateway to North America, our highly skilled workforce and our competitive environment were all important factors in making their decision to invest in Windsor. Pristine’s head office and manufacturing facility serves to strengthen our position as a hub for green and clean technologies,” said Windsor Mayor Eddie Francis.
