Sterling Industries receives financial support to increase PPE production

Vaughan-based Sterling Industries has received funding through the Ontario Together Fund to increase their capacity to make personal protective equipment (PPE).

Sterling Industries is a contract manufacturer and assembler of medical devices and sub-components. The $1,023,325 investment from the province will allow the company to increase its output of face shields from 200,000 per week to more than a million per week and help Sterling Industries deliver 10 million face shields to Ontario Health more quickly.

For more information, read the Government of Ontario press release.
