Tillsonburg, ON, January 4, 2020 – The Town of Tillsonburg is pleased to announce that Systemair has purchased the 10 Rouse Street property. This property is located adjacent to and directly east of their existing facility at 8 Rouse Street in Tillsonburg. The 10 Rouse Street property contains an 86,400 square foot building on 19 acres and will enable Systemair to increase their vertical integration and bring additional jobs to Tillsonburg.
“Since Systemair consolidated their operations to Tillsonburg in 2013 with the purchase of our current location at 8 Rouse Street, we have continued to expand our product offerings for both the Canadian and US markets”, states Rick Kyle, General Manager, “Purchasing the 10 Rouse Street property will allow us to further consolidate our operations, increase our capacity, introduce new products to the North American market, and at the same time vertically integrate some parts of our supply chain.”
Systemair plans to expand into the new facility with a phased-in approach, which will see them relocate products that are stored in leased space into the new building in early 2021 followed by the installation of advanced metal fabrication equipment at the beginning of Q2 2021 with production starting up shortly thereafter.
“On behalf of Town Council, staff and residents, I would like to congratulate Systemair and their team on this investment to expand their Tillsonburg operations”, says Tillsonburg Mayor Stephen Molnar, “this will bring a much needed boost to our community as we move forward with recovering from the ongoing pandemic and in creating a brighter future for our Town.”
“With the purchase of the 10 Rouse Street property, Systemair will have a combined property of 25 acres and 128,800 square feet of building area”, says Development Commissioner Cephas Panschow, “and this will result in them having the 5th largest manufacturing footprint in Tillsonburg.”
“Systemair’s expansion will help bring additional work to the area, which means increased job creation and the growth of our manufacturing sector and we look forward to working with them and the Multi-Service Centre to support this growth”, adds Mayor Stephen Molnar.
