Tool And Die Firms Expand


Two local tool and die shops are expanding, the latest in a series of local shops adding capacity.

Veltri Canada located on Patillo Rd. is looking to add 100,000 sq. ft. of shop space to its current Lakeshore site. A site plan for the expansion will be discussed by Lakeshore Council tonight.

At the same time, Tecumseh Council will discuss a 10,000 sq. ft. expansion at AC Metal on Blackacre Dr. in Oldcastle.

They’re just the latest firms looking to expand. Currently, there are as many as a dozen postings on the federal government’s Job Bank from Windsor area firms looking to add people with manufacturing experience.
