"Ontario has been a great place for Mitsui High-tec (Canada) Inc. to settle and build. With the growing focus on the Hybrid and EV industry in Canada, and our opportunity to strengthen the supply chain, Ontario is a fantastic location to be close to borders for export, with space and opportunity to continue growing. Brantford has specifically been a great place to expand into, as there is a healthy job force, and space for development. We are looking forward to continuing to foster our relationship with the region of Brantford and Province of Ontario in this next phase of expansion,” Yasushi Harada President of Mitsui High-tec (Canada), Inc. said.

To support the project the Canadian government is investing $3.1 million through Invest Ontario.
