New window panels could be made from a special type of wood called alpine walnut.
A new factory in a rural region of western Ontario will make them for cars.
Article Posted: December 05, 2018 14:50:57A company in the area says it has received a $50,000 grant from the government of Ontario to create the factory.
It has a 30-acre plot of land on the banks of the Bow River and has a large wood warehouse.
The company is making alpine-wool window panels.
It is part of a new factory for a different kind of window.
The company says it can make a wide variety of materials and it will have an edge over competitors.
This is a new type of window that will allow us to have an advantage over other manufacturers, said Terry Sorensen, who oversees the project.
The Woodlands Development Corporation of Ottawa is offering $50 million in federal money to build the factory, which will employ 1,200 workers.
Sorensent says the company has received support from the Canadian Tire Foundation.
