Province Partners with MHI Canada Aerospace to Support More Than 700 Jobs
Mississauga, ON – Oct 2, 2017
Ontario is partnering with MHI Canada Aerospace Inc. to invest in new equipment and upgrade its Mississauga facility, creating 90 jobs and helping to maintain 636 positions.
Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development and Growth, made the announcement today.
MHI Canada Aerospace Inc., a subsidiary of Japan-based Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, is a leading manufacturer of major aircraft structures and assemblies. It is the only tier one aerospace supplier in Ontario capable of building complete aircraft wings, assembling the wings to the fuselage and installing systems for the two parts. It also performs systems and flight control assembly installations and testing.
With support from Ontario’s Jobs and Prosperity Fund, the company is investing in new state-of-the-art equipment, upgrading its facility and training its staff. This will help the company independently support the entire Bombardier Global 5000/6000 program currently undertaken by MHI, as work will be transferred from MHI Japan to Ontario. It will also boost MHI Canada Aerospace’s competitiveness and position it as the only tier one supplier of choice for aerospace structures in Canada.
Strengthening Ontario’s aerospace sector is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
