TORONTO — Mitrex, a GTA-based solar technology manufacturer of building-integrated photovoltaic technology (BIPV), has officially launched operations of its new production factory in Toronto, Ontario. Now fully operational, the new facility will be incorporating Mitrex’s patented solar solution, including solar cladding, windows and railings. The facility, which will also act as the company’s head office, will allow Mitrex to localize its production in the Canadian market while ramping up product offerings into other markets including the United States of America.

The new manufacturing facility, comprised of a designed 3D outer wall of the company’s cladding technology, will span an area of over 100,000 square feet and will have a fully automated production line. This will hopefully allow for a more effective production system to produce Mitrex’s solar offerings for clients within the North American market and beyond.

“As the climate crisis continues to deepen, we need to rethink how we invest in integrated solar technology that is cost-effective, malleable and efficient,” says Mitrex CEO Danial Hadizadeh. “With the opening of the new factory, it will allow us to create construction materials that meet the architectural demands of our clients while creating a blueprint for future Mitrex factories across the world.”

The facility hopes to cement Mitrex as a major player in the North American and global markets, with its R&D efforts, manufacturing capabilities, and new supply chain capacity. This factory structure will then be used in future facilities throughout Canada, the US, and then the world.

“The new factory equipped with our robust production line will allow Mitrex to produce 25,000 square feet of solar integrated panels such as solar cladding and solar glass for windows and railing per day,” says Hadizadeh. “We firmly believe that we can turn any surface the sun touches into an energy source with our products without compromising beauty and aesthetics. Our malleable technology is the future of solar infrastructure and will be critical in supporting efforts in curbing carbon emissions.”

The new factory will also allow for 100 per cent of Mitrex products to be made in Canada.
