Lower labour and production costs and close to the heart of NA auto manufacturing
Chatham-Kent is closer to the heart of U.S. auto manufacturing than many parts of the U.S. with 23 OEM assembly plants within less than 4 hours drive.
Ontario is home to top automakers, 700+ automotive parts manufacturers and 500+ tool, die and mould makers thanks to the infrastructure, skilled work force and easy access to rail and the NAFTA Superhighway that connects us to Canadian and US vehicle manufacturers.
Innovation is affordable here
R&D tax credits in Ontario are the most generous of the G7 countries. Combined with federal R&D programs, Ontario’s R&D tax credit program can generate 40-60% savings.
Suppliers worth their weight in aluminium and steel
Chatham-Kent’s auto parts manufacturers, tool, die and mould makers and other suppliers are recognized for their top-quality products, groundbreaking innovation, and excellent business practices.
