Ontario is partnering with Kruger Products to support a multi-million dollar expansion at the company’s Trenton facility.
Kruger Products, Canadian manufacturer and distributor of tissue products for household use and the hotel, restaurant and hospital markets, will receive up to $10 million through the province’s Jobs and Prosperity Fund. The loan will help the company expand its commercial division and boost its market share in the United States.
The facility will feature new state-of-the-art equipment and eight new production lines. The project has a total value of up to $52 million and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
“I am thrilled Kruger Products is expanding its operations, strengthening its exports and creating so many new jobs for people in the Trenton area,” noted Minister of Economic Development and Growth Brad Duguid. “We are committed to strategically partnering with companies like Kruger because they are growing our economy and providing good jobs that people can count on.”
The Jobs and Prosperity Fund is providing $2.7 billion over 10 years to enhance productivity, bolster innovation and grow Ontario’s exports.
