New Jobs Expected At Manufacturing Plant Opening In Tilbury

United Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of precision engineered stainless steel tubing, announced the opening of its newest facility. The company said work on the production environment has begun and is slated to take over a currently unoccupied manufacturing space beginning in September. Manufacturing is expected to begin immediately once the factory installation is complete.

“We are extremely pleased to be joining the Chatham-Kent business community and very appreciative of all the support we have received from Mayor Canniff and the entire region. We chose the Chatham-Kent area for this key expansion due to its outstanding local workforce along with your civic leader’s willingness to create a strong business partnership,” said Greg Sturicz, president of United Industries.

The hiring process will begin as a phased approach, but once the factory is fully operational, the company said it will generate as many as 100 local jobs. United Industries prides itself as a community-minded company and has also expressed an interest in sourcing third-party labour, such as tool-and-die, machining, and trade work from local employers, significantly increasing the economic impact of this investment.

“We are very excited that United Industries, Inc. has chosen Chatham-Kent as the location of this significant expansion and investment. The product and the company’s reputation as an employer are of the highest calibre” said Canniff. United Industries, Inc. is a subsidiary of the multi-generational, family-owned business United Stars Inc., which was founded in 1936. The firm is headquartered in Beloit, Wisconsin, and is owned and operated by Roger West, the company’s chairman and CEO.
