“This $5 million investment will allow ABS to add a state-of-the-art production line that will help meet the increasing demand from Canadian and American customers while supporting long-term strategic growth plans,” the company said in an announcement.

The expansion will allow it to: increase manufacturing efficiency; pursue growth through product development and export; match sales growth with production capacity; and consolidate production under one roof.

The company will now operate out of 52,000 sq.-ft. of space.
