Kuntz Electroplating Expands Kitchener, Ontario, Operations
This investment will help the company modify its existing production lines and add new equipment to meet growing demand from the EV market for its services.
“We are very appreciative of the support KEI is receiving from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario through the Jobs and Growth Fund. This support will help us add new products, access new markets, and continue to be globally competitive from our Kitchener location through investment in state-of-the-art technologies for the North American electric vehicle market,” Jeff Regehr, Vice President, Finance, Kuntz Electroplating Inc. said.
The project is being supported by $3 million in government incentives.
“Supporting family businesses like Kuntz Electroplating Inc. will help create good local jobs and develop new manufacturing capabilities to support Canada’s growing EV and manufacturing sector. Our Government is focused on elevating local communities by investing in the people that have the potential to turn possibilities into reality. We will continue to work together to deliver more for Canadians and grow an economy that works for everyone,” The Honourable Filomena Tassi, Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario noted.
KEI is one of Kitchener’s longest-running family-owned businesses and is one of North America’s leading manufacturers of electroplated and powder-coated exterior components for the automotive and motorcycle industries. The company was recently awarded a large contract from the Canadian branch of a multinational automotive parts manufacturer to powder coat EV battery components for one of the world’s largest automakers and also secured contracts from Harley Davidson Motor Co.
