On an industrial property in the quiet Niagara community of Fort Erie, Ont., Abatement Technologies is set to break ground on a new 100,000-square-foot manufacturing space that will also serve as its new head office.
The world-renowned, family-owned company specializes in hospital-grade HEPA filtration systems that are a crucial part of COVID-19 containment efforts, and going all-in on a Niagara expansion to complement 10 other international locations was an easy decision.
“Geographically, there’s immense benefits for us,” said Justin Larsen, director of marketing and product innovation at Abatement Technologies. “Niagara has given us a good pool of talent to pull from.
“We have access to all the shipping lanes. We’re close to enough major airports that it’s easy for us to be connected to the globe.
“Operational costs, and cost to expand, is easier in Niagara than it is in the GTA … so we’re absolutely committed to staying in the community.”
