LISI to invest $12M in Dorval production line
Increased capacity adds 116 aerospace jobs in Greater Montréal area.
MONTREAL — LISI Aerospace Canada is marking its 10th anniversary as a Dorval, Que. manufacturer of high-performance aerospace fasteners used to hold plane or engine components together with a $12-million investment in a new production line.
The subsidiary of French group LISI Aerospace said the line will make titanium assembly components for the global aerospace industry.
The company said it will hire 116 skilled workers over the next three years, while maintaining the current 60 jobs in the greater Montreal area.
The plant will increase production capacity by around 40% and position itself as the group’s main integration centre, said Jean-Louis Colders, CEO of LISI Aerospace.
“We can design and produce top-quality, high¬ precision parts used to hold plane or engine components together, by protecting them from contamination from oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen or carbon during the forging process,” he added, acknowledging financial contributions from the Québec and federal governments.
