April 21, 2022 – Windsor, Ontario
FedDev Ontario invests $1 million for Dimachem Inc. to increase domestic production capabilities and create 27 jobs
Windsor-Essex is a well-known leader and innovator in the manufacturing sector from traditional and innovative automotive parts, to agricultural solutions and beyond. As part of Canada’s economic recovery, the Government of Canada is supporting these manufacturers with the tools they need to scale-up and create new jobs as they continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today, the Honourable Helena Jaczek, Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), announced an investment of $1 million for Dimachem Inc. to expand its production capabilities and create 27 skilled jobs in Windsor-Essex.
Located in Windsor, Dimachem Inc. is a leading manufacturer of industrial chemicals for the automotive and cleaning industries. This investment supports the nearly 20,000-sq. ft. expansion of Dimachem’s facility and the adoption of leading-edge, energy-efficient equipment to reduce production waste and fulfill its latest contract with Clorox Canada.
Through this investment, Dimachem Inc. is increasing Canadian-made manufacturing of Pine-Sol® products and packaging—meeting Canadian market demands for the cleaner-disinfectant products. As a result, Dimachem will increase revenues, strengthen domestic supply chain spending and boost market opportunities.
“The Government of Canada is making smart investments to ensure that Canadian manufacturers have the support they need to produce made-in-Canada solutions and seize new opportunities for economic growth. Today’s investment in Dimachem Inc will create jobs, drive economic growth and protect Canadian manufacturing and supply chains.”
– The Honourable Helena Jaczek, Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario
“This Government of Canada investment in Dimachem Inc. will help the Windsor-Essex community further develop its network of incredible talent and leading-edge innovation in the evolving manufacturing sector. The strength of this region is built on our home-grown manufacturers and today’s investment will fuel our regional economy and create 27 new jobs across Windsor-Essex.”
– Irek Kusmierczyk, Member of Parliament for Windsor-Tecumseh
“This funding from the Government of Canada is helping Dimachem Inc. invest in new equipment to produce over significant volumes of Clorox’s Pine-Sol cleaning products annually. Dimachem is increasing domestic capacity and helping to keep people safe throughout the pandemic and beyond. As Dimachem scales for future growth, we are proud to be creating new jobs and opportunities to strengthen our local economy here in Windsor.”
– Andrew Conway, Vice-President, Dimachem Inc.
Founded in 1972, as Chemfil Canada Ltd., Dimachem Inc. formulates, blends, and packages industrial and commercial chemical products. It currently employs 37 staff.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dimachem diversified its products by producing hand sanitizers.
Since November 2015, FedDev Ontario has invested nearly $100 million in nearly 120 projects across Windsor-Essex, creating over 1,250 jobs and maintaining almost 5,000 jobs. This includes a $7.5-million Government of Canada investment made in May to establish Canada’s first world-class automobility accelerator in Windsor.
