BARRIE, Ont.—An Ontario precision metal manufacturer is embarking on a $2.5 million expansion project with a quarter-million dollars in assistance from the provincial government.
Following a recent move to a larger manufacturing facility in Barrie, Ont. Brotech Precision CNC Inc., which makes components for the nuclear power, aerospace and defense industries, plans to add several new pieces of equipment to its plant floor.
