The subsidiary of Austria's Starlim Sterner Group is putting another $10.4 million into the manufacturing location in London with both equipment and 26 new jobs.
The LSR molder last expanded at the location in 2018, with a $20 million infusion.
"This strategic investment will allow us to meet the needs of the growing medical device sector by implementing a manufacturing process that is first of its kind," said Vijai Lakshmikanthan, CEO of Starlim North America Corp. "We have been working with our customer for over two years to bring this innovation to our plant in London."
For Ontario's part, the project is being supported by nearly $1.3 million through the Regional Development Program's Southwestern Ontario Development Fund; and nearly $1 million from the Ontario Together Fund.
Ontario Together provides financial support to organizations with projects geared toward advancing health care resiliency and developing innovative medical technologies.
"The Ontario government has been supportive of this investment from the get-go, and we truly want to thank Minister Fedeli and his team for helping Ontario manufacturers like Starlim grow," Lakshmikanthan said.
Starlim North America produces 60 separate silicone components for the health care, mobility, automotive and consumer goods industries.
This most recent investment, announced Jan. 15, will support the addition of a new curing oven and cleanroom, as well as new manufacturing equipment for the London plant.
