One Lakeshore tool and mold shop is picking up steam with plans to expand and create new jobs.

Circle 5 Holdings is adding 17,000 sq ft to its facility on Silver Creek Industrial Drive.

Lakeshore Mayor Tom Bain says this company plays an important role in the overall manufacturing industry across Windsor-Essex.

“It’s going to employ probably 20-30 more people in there and plus all the people that get hired to do the construction,” says Bain.

This is going to be the company’s third expansion since it began in 1987, adding to its current 36,000 sq ft site.
