DMI Industries has announced it will be expanding its workforce to 225 people to help meet the demand for wind towers in Ontario. The company is one of more than 20 companies that have announced they are setting up or expanding plants to manufacture parts for the solar and wind industry, creating new jobs in the province, says the government.
“At DMI, we are pleased to be an example of how the Green Energy Act in Ontario successfully brought the return of jobs and business. Yet we recognize our sustainability depends on long-term, stable energy policy that continues to support this new business and offers opportunities for growth and jobs,” said Steffan Nilsson, president.
Since 1999, DMI says it has built more than 36 tower designs for the industrial leaders in the wind energy industry such as GE Wind, Siemens, Mitsubishi, and Vestas.
“When it comes to manufacturing and green energy, Niagara’s DMI is a dynamic and towering example of the province’s green energy plan at work. Every single day the workers here at the plant are making our environment safer and our economy stronger,” added Kim Craitor, MPP Niagara Falls.
