TMI Climate Solutions Canada, Inc., Pointe-Claire, Que., has opened its first Canadian manufacturing plant.
“We are very thrilled to officially inaugurate our 200,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Pointe-Claire”, said president and general manager Sham Ahmed on June 14. The company manufactures custom air-handling equipment, hydronic systems and custom-engineered HVAC solutions.
“Our $45-million investment will create more than 250 jobs over the next three years, allowing TMI to increase its global manufacturing and export capacity. Our new Montreal facility not only reinforces TMI‘s leadership in custom-engineered HVAC systems, but it also sets the stage for enhancing the product offering with a wider variety of air handling units,” he added.
The new plant will serve the eastern and midwestern North American market, with 90 percent of its production slated for export. It represents a substantial increase in production for the company, which also operates a plant in Michigan.
“Choosing Montreal was a strategic move intended to support the growth of our business, as we are faced with increasing demand in North America for state-of-the-art custom air handling solutions,” said TMI CEO Jim Huff. “This lively and dynamic metropolis is home to some of the world’s best specialized talents that are both creative and innovation focused. The strength of the region’s human capital convinced us to take the next step in Quebec,” he added.
TMI Climate Solutions’ arrival in Pointe-Claire is the result of close collaboration among Montréal International, Investissement Québec, Emploi-Québec and Canada Economic Development for Quebec Region (CED).
