Blow molding equipment maker W. Amsler Equipment Inc. plans to relocate its headquarters and manufacturing operations this summer to Bolton, Ontario, from nearby Richmond Hill, the company's home since 1999.
Amsler officials announced July 9 that the company has signed a lease agreement for 34,000 square feet in the Toronto suburb, more than doubling the size of its Richmond Hill operation. The company, which makes all-electric linear PET stretch blow molding machines, will move in starting Aug. 1.
Amsler also supplies bottle inspection equipment, trimmers, air compressors, vacuum conveyors, molds, gaylord dumpers, temperature control units and process chillers.
The building is undergoing significant renovations and improvements, including new plant air compressors, auxiliary equipment and other infrastructure needs.
"We've experienced rapid growth over the last five years and we've outgrown our current space," said Heidi Amsler, marketing manager.
The expanded facility will house sales, engineering, manufacturing and service personnel. The new location has more room for machine development, pilot production and classroom training.
The plant also has greater access to rail transportation and to Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Werner Amsler founded the machinery company in 1994. The business moved to Richmond Hill in 1999.
Effective Aug. 1, the Amsler's new address will be: 31 Parr Blvd., Bolton, Ontario. The main phone number will be 905-951-9559.
