Héroux-Devtek will grow its aerospace landing gear business with a new manufacturing facility in Cambridge, Ontario. According to the firm, its state-of-the-art facility will play a key role in the company fulfilling a major contract to supply Boeing. The total investment is valued at $54.2 million, with $7.05 million in support from the Canadian province.

"This new facility will play a pivotal role in executing the most important landing gear contract in Héroux-Devtek's history and its high level of automation will allow us to supply superior quality products to Boeing at a very competitive cost. We sincerely thank the Government of Ontario for supporting our industry, in which Canada ranks fifth worldwide,” said Gilles Labbé, President/CEO, Héroux-Devtek

The project further strengthens the province's aerospace sector, particularly in commercial landing gear, where Ontario is a leader and accounts for a major share of the global market.

"Today's announcement is great news for Ontario's aerospace sector and demonstrates how targeted, strategic investments can strengthen key Ontario industries.

With this investment, we ensure these capabilities remain in Ontario where they can continue growing,” said Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure.
