Industrial Parks

Amherstburg currently has a manufacturing base of small and medium manufacturers including Diageo, a local whiskey distillery that produces the legendary Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey, Precision Plastics, one of Ontario's largest full-service suppliers of Industrial Plastics and thermoplastic, Superior Wood Produces, including manufactures trusses and joists, and Windsor Machine and Stamping on Smith Industrial Drive.

We have planned for industrial development in the Smith Industrial/Howard Avenue lands to the south of County Road 8 where 795 acres are designated Heavy and Light Industrial. Over the past few years, several new industrial developments have achieved planning approvals to locate in this area.

The historic industrial area of Town which includes former General Chemical plant has been reclaimed and is serviced and ready for re-development opportunities.

Our growing manufacturing base is the result of a number of competitive advantages:

  • Strategically located only 20 minutes to the Windsor, Canada - United States border the region is the primary gateway to access all of Ontario and is North America's "crossroads for commerce."
  • The low cost of fully serviced land
  • Low property taxes
  • Access to a highly trained and motivated labour pool
  • Quality transportation linkages via Highway, rail and water
  • No development charges for industrial and commercial developments as reviewed and extended by council.

For more information on Amherstburg's manufacturing sector and investment opportunities please contact the Town's Chief Administrative Officer, John Miceli at (519) 736-0012 ext. 228 or via email.
