Abraflex, a certified Indigenous company, provides plastic suiting for Bruce Power, used in radiation protection and with its new partners, CCN, Promation and the Plan Group, is getting into heat exchanger remediation work which could create dozens of new jobs at the Paisley facility.
Abraflex spokesperson Mike Ruysseveldt says every effort will be made to include Indigenous workers at the plant.
Ruysseveldt says Abraflex is already working on a 10,000 square foot expansion of the facility to add to the existing 12,000 square foot manufacturing space.
More jobs for the Paisley area is music to the ears of Arran Elderslie Mayor Steve Hammell who says besides the jobs, he believes the expansion will bring energy to the village as it continues to grow.
Besides the pastic radiation protection suits manufactured by Abraflex, they also make specialized products including gaskets,
material handling services, decontamination tenting services and packing and seals of all types.
The announcement of the expansion and job increases was made at a special ceremony at the Paisley plant on June 14th.
