Northumberland County Economic Development


Advanced Manufacturing

Northumberland has a diverse manufacturing sector comprising a variety of consumer and industrial products.

We hosted a number of global manufacturers and offer emerging advanced manufacturers several world class facilities from which to start or expand their advanced manufacturing expertise.

Our County has a higher concentration of people with college degrees and trade certificates than both Ontario and Canada.  We are within an hour of two universities and three colleges that offer a wide variety of technical programs to ensure their graduates are ready for a career in manufacturing. 

Many local manufacturers take advantage of government training subsidies and programs that cover a portion of training costs.  Wages are competitive, yet lower than the provincial average. Manufacturing companies enjoy the dedicated, skilled labour; easy access to Highway 401; and exceptional quality of life that our County offers.

Here is a list of manufacturing and related business.
