W. Amsler Equipment Inc., a leading supplier of all-electric linear PET stretch blow moulders, has announced plans to relocate its headquarters and manufacturing operations to Bolton, Ontario, Canada later this summer. The new location – designed to meet the expanded demands of the company’s growing PET blow moulding machine business – will be in the heart of the “Plastics Corridor,” less than 20km 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 moulding companies.
W. 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.
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 needs.
