Advanced manufacturing IN HAMILTON

Did you know the Advanced Manufacturing sector is part of an industry that contributes $12 Billion to Ontario’s economy?

As Canada gets back to work, there are goods to be produced, buildings to be built, roads to construct and schools and hospitals to expand.  Many of the products to do this manufacturing work start in Hamilton.  The great number of businesses in Hamilton’s advanced manufacturing sector means a city that knows how to make things, a city that has established some of the strongest supply chains in North America and a city that has the talented workforce to get the job done.  In recent years, Hamilton has benefitted from major investments from L3 Harris, Stelco, Corbec and EllisDon to further the expansion of the sector as well as consistent investments in the billions of dollars from the world’s largest steelmaker ArcelorMittal (Dofasco). 

If you have an Advanced Manufacturing investment and are looking for help from Hamilton’s Economic Development Office to start an operation, expand a facility, and/or find new markets contact us!
