AstenJohnson is investing US$2.5 million in its dryer plant located in Kanata, Ontario outside of Ottawa.
The company made the announcement in August 2020 and says the investment will address the increased demand for locally supplied dryer fabrics in the Canadian and U.S. markets.
AstenJohnson manufactures products from within the region where they are sold, which the company says reduces the products’ carbon footprint.
The company’s board of directors approved the plan to install a new high-speed loom, which they expect to be operational during the first quarter of 2021. They are also hiring new associates to match the increase in production.
