ST-HUBERT — Techo-Bloc Inc. will be opening a new manufacturing plant in Ayr, Ontario in Spring 2022. Techo-Bloc’s $45 million investment will allow for the creation of over 50 local jobs and contribute to the growth of Ontario’s manufacturing sector. The project is backed by $4 million in grants and loans provided by the federal and Ontario governments, demonstrating their support for the project.

The project is part of the company’s growth plan and to try and help maintain its position in the hardscape industry. The new facility will boast advanced manufacturing technologies as well as being the site of one of the largest industrial permeable pavement applications in North America.

By increasing production capacity and service levels, Techo-Bloc will be able to effectively supply the market while relieving pressure on its other plants and preparing to meet forecasted production demand for the years ahead.
