Ross Video has broken ground on an expansion of its manufacturing facility in Iroquois Ontario, Canada, which will have a low carbon footprint.
The expansion, which will rely on green energy to minimise the environmental impact of new manufacturing lines, is being paid for with a $15 million investment from Ross Video and nearly $3 million in funding from the Ontario government.
“This will not only help us better deal with the substantial and sustained demand for our products and services but give us a chance to move closer to our goal of a fully carbon-neutral factory well before 2030,” said Ross Video’s chief manufacturing and services officer Jeff Poapst. “We take our responsibilities to our customers, our employees and their families, our suppliers, and business partners, our community and the environment very seriously. We’re checking boxes on all those fronts with this effort.”
The new facility will employ more than 40 people in manufacturing with more positions anticipated as the company continues to grow.
“I am extremely proud to be breaking ground on our factory expansion. This event combines our commitment to my hometown of Iroquois, a low carbon footprint green facility, and a major increase of our manufacturing capacity to serve our growing global customer base,” added CEO David Ross.
