APAG Elektronik held its official opening Tuesday, which included a ribbon cutting and tree planting ceremony with Mayor Drew Dilkens and company officials.

APAG has recently renovated a former 32,000 sq ft one-storey FedEx facility in Windsor to create a R&D and production facility for export mainly to the USA, pending government incentives.

The company currently has close to 20 employees at its Canadian operation, with a goal of 151 employees proposed over the next five years, and close to 500 worldwide. While APAG’s corporate headquarters will continue to be based in Switzerland, supported by the German subsidiary, the corporate headquarters for the electronic control unit development for concept lightning will be in Windsor

APAG is a part of a family-owned and values-driven corporate group with diverse interests and customers. The company offers full-service R&D (e.g. hardware & software development, lighting and mechanical designs, and testing) and production (e.g. design for manufacturing, design for cost, automation and test concepts). The company supplies the automotive sector, as well as quality-conscious non-automotive customers, with a focus on the demanding global automotive OEM supply chain.

In January, they received approval for a $4M repayable FedDev contribution for capital renovations, equipment and training, plus an additional $100,000 grant for IT from the Ontario Centres of Excellence. The company is currently engaged in R&D for automotive customers and will launch its first production line this June.
