BADEN, Ont. –At a time when news of plant closures seems to be a daily occurrence in Ontario, it’s refreshing to visit a newly-opened chassis modification facility in the province. Such was the case recently, when Raydan Manufacturing opened the doors of a new 20,000 sq.-ft. plant in Baden, near Kitchener.
Located on seven acres of land, the shop features a 100-ft. long pit. Most of Raydan’s work at the new shop will consist of chassis modifications and twin steer axle installations for vocational applications. It will also be home to Raydan subsidiary, Sturdy Truck Body.
Raydan management has said the location will allow the company to better serve Ontario-based customers. Brian Ahrens, director of eastern operations with Raydan, said Ontario has a healthy twin steer market which will be better serviced by the company now that it has a genuine Ontario presence.
About 15 employees are based at the Baden facility, with the sales staff slated to relocate there in January.
The new facility is located at 3025 Sandhills Road in Baden, Ont. •
