Techo-Bloc facility gains government funding

Both the Ontario and federal governments announced funding to support Techo-Bloc in opening a production facility in Ayr, Ont. Ontario is providing $1.5 million, while the Trudeau government is adding a repayable contribution of $2.5 million.

Techo-Bloc manufactures concrete pavement products for landscaping, including paving stones. It has facilities in Quebec and the U.S.

Techo-Bloc says it plans to make the Ayr facility its hub for new products and process development. The new facility will create 50 highly-skilled, full-time, permanent jobs in the areas of manufacturing, engineering and management, according to a media release from the Ontario government.
