Canada Goose acquires 2nd manufacturing plant in Toronto
Luxury parka maker Canada Goose has acquired a manufacturing facility in Toronto from its contractor, Grand Harbour Clothing.
The 45,000 square-foot facility is located in the Scarborough area and is the company's second manufacturing plant in the region.
The outdoor apparel maker says the acquisition adds 70 employees to its staff and is expected to boost efficiency by 25 per cent.
Canada Goose will produce its line of lightweight jackets and vests, called the HyBridge Lite collection, at the site.
The company says it plans to invest in new technologies and infrastructure to retool the facility.
"I'm proud to be leading the charge in rebuilding apparel manufacturing infrastructure," Dani Reiss, the company's president and CEO, said in a statement.
"This is an important investment that not only expands our footprint, but significantly increases productivity by transforming a great factory into a world-class manufacturing campus through innovative technologies and processes."
