PALMERSTON – A manufacturing company in Minto is getting over $1.5 million from the province for improvements and new jobs.
Perth-Wellington MPP Matthew Rae said the money is to support Trusscore's $10 million investment, which looks to improve on manufacturing processes, and expand the company's facility in Palmerston.
It'll also create 68 new jobs.
"This provincial funding will help Trusscore to continue to revolutionize the home building materials industry, while creating good paying jobs locally," Rae said in a news release.
Trusscore makes polyvinyl chloride (PVC)-based wall and ceiling panels for home garages, workshops, restaurants, offices and more.
The CEO of Trusscore, Dave Caputo, said the investment will allow the company to "take our operations to the next level."
On top of the expansion, Caputo said the money will be dedicated to implementing state-of-the-art systems and focus on the development and commercialization of innovative high-tech solutions in the building materials industry.
"We will create new jobs for the community and be able to meet the ever-growing demand for Trusscore products," he said. "This grant is a testament to the hard work and dedication of Team Trusscore, and we are confident that it will position us for continued growth and success in the future."
