Two Windsor region manufacturers received an investment of more than $5.3 million from the Government of Canada on Monday.

Cedar Valley Selections Inc. and Uni-Fab will both use the funding to create 55 jobs and improve their manufacturing capabilities.

Uni-Fab, located in Leamington manufactures custom aluminum, steel and stainless steel products for the automotive, aerospace and machine tool sectors. This $5-million investment, through the Jobs and Growth Fund (JGF), will help Uni-Fab grow their facility and buy new equipment to commercialize their innovative automated pallet changer technology.

Cedar Valley Selections Inc. located in Oldcastle,  is a family-owned manufacturer of ready-to-eat salad dressings and pita chips. This $375,000 investment, through the Jobs and Growth Fund (JGF), will help Cedar Valley buy new equipment to improve its production capacity and meet the demand for its ready-to-make foods. The project will also help the company to move into the U.S. market as well as boost local supply chain spending and create five new jobs in the Windsor region.

“Today’s investment in Cedar Valley and Uni-Fab is supporting our local manufacturers as they grow and commercialize unique first-to-market manufacturing technology, while creating 55 jobs here in the Windsor-Essex. By investing in these businesses, our government is taking the necessary steps to help our communities and our businesses contribute to a more resilient future,” said Irek Kusmierczyk, Member of Parliament for Windsor–Tecumseh.
