New manufacturing facility in Windsor, Ontario to be established by Convoy Technologies, INC.
“If the pandemic has taught us one thing,” Convoy Technologies’ President Ron Harker said, “it is that having control over your supply chain is the key to getting products to your customers quickly and reliably. Sourcing parts closer to home and assembling them in North America will ultimately give us shorter, more predictable lead times. And it will eventually help us contain total costs, meaning our customers can count on continued supply and competitive pricing.”
The goal is to employ up to 50 employees and to start operations as early as fall of this year. The company will maintain its current distribution center in Fort Wayne, IN.
The local Canadian Invest WindsorEssex Investment Attraction team began working with Convoy Technologies in September 2022 and provided valuable labor cost analysis, site selection, and introductions to post-secondary institutions. As noted by Stephen MacKenzie, President and CEO of Invest WindsorEssex, “Invest WindsorEssex welcomes the addition of Convoy Technologies to our region as a valued an integral part of our rapidly growing automobility ecosystem.”
