"Dancor has enjoyed the entire development and construction experience in the City of London and has plans to develop and build in the City for many years to come. London is a great City and has a wonderful business atmosphere. This amazing accomplishment of completing this new building in just 168 days is the result of many great partnerships. First and foremost, the LEDC made it possible for Dancor to see the amazing opportunities London has to offer. The City of London staff, each and every department, made sure that we could start building as soon as possible in order to meet the very tight schedule."
"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.
