Composites manufacturer picks Burlington, Ont.
Transition will help Morgan produce advanced composites, defence components in Canada for Canadian and export markets
BURLINGTON, Ont.—Defence products manufacturer Morgan Advanced Canada Inc. has consolidated its Composites and Defence Systems business in its Burlington, Ont., facility
Morgan says the relocation increases its manufacturing capabilities for advanced composite hard armor, soldier systems, vehicle armor, lightweight vehicle technology and aerospace armor.
Combining technical expertise and equipment from three different plants located throughout Canada, the new Burlington site employs more than 50 people well as 9,290 square metres of manufacturing space—five times more than the combined capacity of its prior manufacturing facilities.
The transition allows Morgan to refocus its resources to be more engineering based, providing customized composite systems for defense applications used in the world’s most advanced lightweight armor solutions.
The transition is expected to help Morgan produce highly advanced components in Canada for the Canadian market and for export.
“The increased headcount, new space and new equipment at the Burlington site give us a great capacity boost that will allow us to supply our customers with the latest products for protection of soldiers in the military,” said Duncan Eldridge, president of Morgan Composites and Defence Systems
Headquartered in England, Morgan Advanced Materials employs more than 10,000 people in 50 countries serving the energy, transport healthcare, electronics, petrochemical and industrial sectors.
