The new location – designed to meet the expanded demands of the company’s growing PET blow molding machine business – will be in the heart of the “Plastics Corridor,” less than 20 kilometers from the Pearson (Toronto) Airport in Rexdale. The Bolton area is also home to suppliers such as Husky Injection Molding Systems, Athena Automation, and many blow molding companies.
Amsler has signed a lease agreement for 34,000 sq ft of space which will more than double the company’s current facility. The standalone facility will provide room to grow and more space for collaboration with customers. In addition to corporate offices, the new space will house business development and project management activities, said Heidi Amsler, marketing manager for W. Amsler. “We’ve experienced rapid growth over the last five years and we’ve outgrown our current space,” said Amsler.
The expanded facility will house sales, engineering, manufacturing, and service personnel. The new location will also accommodate more room for machine development, pilot production, and classroom-style training. Greater access to air and rail transportation will make it more convenient for supply partners, customers, and vendors.
All equipment, production assets, and employees will be transferred from the existing facility in Richmond Hill to Bolton. W. Amsler will occupy the leased space starting August 1 where it is currently undertaking significant renovations and improvements. The investment includes the purchase of new air compressors, auxiliary equipment, and other infrastructure need.
Amsler was started in 1994 by founder Werner Amsler in Concord, Ontario and operations were later transferred to Richmond Hill in May 1999.
Effective August 1, the new address of W. Amsler’s headquarters will be 31 Parr Blvd., Bolton, Ontario. The company’s main phone number will be (905) 951-9559.
