Elias Custom Metal announced today the first ever Electrical House manufactured in Ontario and a $2 million investment that will help grow the economy and strengthen advanced manufacturing.
The utility grade Electrical House (or E-House) was built for Enersource Mississauga, and custom-designed and engineered in partnership with ABB Canada using 50 % recycled materials. E-Houses are a newer trend in the energy, mining, gas and oil sectors. The pre-fabricated structures are key components of the energy chain. They help create distribution efficiency and enhance safety.
ECM is also making a $2 million investment into new state-of-the-art technologically advanced laser equipment that will bring additional manufacturing capabilities, stimulate the economy and create around 10 new highly skilled jobs in the community.
Elias Custom Metal Fabrication Ltd. (ECM) is a leading advanced manufacturing company that is committed to using innovative technology and design to build custom precision metal fabrication in Canada and internationally.
"We are pleased to deliver this sophisticated e-house to our local partners. This E-House innovation, in addition to our $2 million investment in state-of-the-art equipment, will allow us to enhance our best-in-class advanced manufacturing to clients all across North America."
"Previously, Canadian companies often had to purchase E-Houses from abroad. Now ECM has brought the capacity and skilled knowledge home to be manufactured here in Ontario."
Fadi Emeid, President and CEO of Elias Custom Metal.
"Investing in innovation is key in a world where change is a constant. Companies who recognize the importance of advancing an agenda driven by competitiveness and productivity will be well prepared to face the challenges and seize the opportunities of the market. Ultimately, investments create jobs. As a City we appreciate leading edge companies that are willing to risk their capital to grow and make a contribution to our standard of living and quality of life."
Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua, City of Vaughan
"We are honoured to be a valued technology advisor and supplier of critical electrical equipment that enhances our customers' operations. Our local service and technology supply is a result of more than 60 years of global research, development and innovation into the best design and performance available to our customers in Canada."
