Ontario Truss and Wall Ltd. Receives Support for Rural Innovation

Ontario Truss and Wall Ltd. will benefit from an investment announced today by Trenval Business Development Corporation.

Trenval is pleased to provide an investment of $75,000 for Ontario Truss and Wall Ltd. under the Rural Innovation Initiative Eastern Ontario (RIIEO), a project funded by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario). This funding will support capital innovation, business expansion and productivity improvements resulting in the creation of two new full-time jobs that will benefit the Bay of Quinte area.

In operation for 35 years, Ontario Truss and Wall Ltd. has expanded its product line to include wall panels and floor systems as well as expanding their current truss capacity.  With this funding, Ontario Truss and Wall Ltd. will purchase an automated overhead laser and projector system that will allow the company to increase productivity, scale their business to meet increased demand and capitalize on new sales opportunities.

Recognizing the vital role rural communities play in the region’s economy, FedDev Ontario is providing a total of $15 million over two years for the CFDCs in Eastern Ontario to deliver the RIIEO.
