"We are grateful of the work done by Dancor, Derek Gould of CB Richard Ellis, Toronto, the LEDC and the City of London in getting this project underway. This is especially true of Heather Pilot of the LEDC who was instrumental in putting all the players together who will help transform this into a completed project by 2008."
"The quality of service and information provided to our investment clients by the London Economic Development Corporation has greatly assisted us in attracting companies to Canada."
Detlef Engler, Canadian Embassy, Germany
In London, we take manufacturing very seriously. This sector remains our largest employer (16%) and is a primary focus of the London Economic Development Corporation.
What better location for a manufacturing industry than in Canada's manufacturing heartland? London is at the geographic centre of Southwestern Ontario and in the heart of Ontario's manufacturing cluster. Just a two-hour drive from Windsor/Detroit, Toronto and Buffalo, London is located on the NAFTA superhighway at the junction of highways 401 and 402.
London boasts a highly educated, skilled and experienced manufacturing workforce that is committed to long-term growth.
London has recently been selected as the new home for significant manufacturing investments by Korean, German, Austrian and U.S. industry leaders. They believe that the combination of location and skilled workforce make London the right choice.
London will continue to pursue and cultivate growth in manufacturing to ensure that this important sector remains healthy and competitive.
