ZF Automotive Canada to expand and upgrade with provincial funding

Queen’s Park says it is contributing over $7.8 million to a Midland-based auto parts maker.

The Ontario Government announced it is committing the funds to ZF Automotive Canada in an effort to help boost the province’s automotive and domestic manufacturing sectors while attracting investments to the local economy.

ZF Automotive Canada will expand and upgrade its manufacturing capabilities with the funding, including some new hardware used for chrome plating.

“ZF Automotive Canada is pleased to make this investment in a new Trivalent Chrome line for its Midland Ontario location. This will make ZF Midland more competitive in the global supply chain, allowing us to diversify our product range, generate enhanced employment opportunities, and support our pursuit of carbon neutrality by 2040,” said Lee Whyman, Midland Ontario Plant Manager for ZF Automotive Canada. “We are very grateful for the assistance and partnership of the Ontario government for its ongoing support for auto manufacturers.”
