POINTE-CLAIRE, Quebec — TMI Climate Solutions Canada Inc., a manufacturer of custom air-handling equipment, advanced hydronic systems, and custom-engineered HVAC solutions, has officially opened its first manufacturing plant in Canada.
“We are very thrilled to officially inaugurate ... our 200,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Pointe-Claire,” said Sham Ahmed, president and general manager of TMI Climate Solutions Canada. “Our $45 million investment will create more than 250 jobs over the next three years, allowing TMI to increase its global manufacturing and export capacity. Our new Montreal facility not only reinforces TMI’s leadership in custom-engineered HVAC systems, but it also sets the stage for enhancing the product offering with a wider variety of air-handling units.”
With this new manufacturing facility and the production capability of its plant in Michigan, TMI said customers will now have greater access to custom engineering expertise, faster order processing, and quicker delivery times for a range of HVAC solutions. The new plant will serve the eastern and midwestern North American market and expects to export 90 percent of its production.
“Choosing Montreal was a strategic move intended to support the growth of our business, as we are faced with increasing demand in North America for state-of-the-art custom air-handling solutions,” said Jim Huff, CEO of TMI Climate Solutions. “This lively and dynamic metropolis is home to some of the world’s best specialized talents that are both creative and innovation focused. The strength of the region’s human capital convinced us to take the next step in Quebec.”
TMI Climate Solutions’ arrival in Pointe-Claire is the result of close collaboration among Montréal International, Investissement Québec, Emploi-Québec, and Canada Economic Development for Quebec Region (CED).
“The government of Canada is determined to support Canadian companies that, like TMI Climate Solutions Canada, focus on innovation, and it recognizes the decisive role that these companies play in the country’s growth. CED helps Quebec’s regions and companies be involved, to the extent of their potential and assets, in tomorrow’s economy,” said the Honourable Navdeep Bains, minister of innovation, science and economic development of Canada.
