Vision Profile Extrusions receives funding to integrate leading edge robotics and automation
Woodbridge-based Vision Profile Extrusions has received a $2.3-million repayable contribution from FedDev Ontario to adopt leading-edge processes, integrating first-in-Canada and first-in-industry capabilities in robotics and automation.
This will allow the company to increase capacity of its polymer and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) processing line, strengthening its position in key export markets including the United States and Latin America. Through this project, Vision Profile Extrusions expects to create 36 skilled jobs and maintain 30 jobs in Woodbridge.
Vision Profile Extrusions manufactures the world’s third-most produced synthetic PVC for use in the installation of windows and doors, primarily for construction. The company is a member of the Vision Group, an industry leader in North America, with more than 970 employees in Canada.
