City incentive program proves success in helping small business to expand

Grants offered since 2011 under a community improvement program by the City of Windsor to help smaller companies build and expand operations has been working well, one city councillor said on Sunday.

“The way to validate that is the uptick generated by the 19 previous applications we approved and hundreds of jobs that have been generated to date,” said Coun. Bill Marra, chairman of the city’s planning, heritage and economic development committee.

The committee at its meeting on Monday will debate merits of the latest applicant — Ellwood Specialty Metals — a small steel supply company off Central Avenue in the 3200 block of St. Etienne Boulevard with its head office in Pennsylvania.

City administration in a seven-page report going to the committee has recommended approval.

The company, much like others previously approved, is relatively small with 23 full-time and six part-time workers, according to the report. It is a supplier of multiple grades of steel and aluminum used for industrial and manufacturing purposes such as tool and die, plastic injection moulding or die casting. [READ MORE]
