H.C. Starck to Expand Canadian Tungsten Facility

H.C. Starck Canada recently announced an agreement for a significant repayable loan to expand its tungsten facility in Sarnia.

H.C. Starck Canada recently announced an agreement for a significant repayable loan, through Ontario’s Advanced Manufacturing Investment Strategy (AMIS) program, to expand its tungsten facility in Sarnia. Sandra Pupatello, Ontario’s minister of Economic Development and Trade, attended a ceremony at the H.C. Starck facility in the Sarnia, Ontario, Chemical Valley, where details were announced.

“Helping Ontario companies transition to more advanced technologies and manufacturing processes is the key to success in today’s modern economy,” said Pupatello. “We’re proud to support H.C. Starck Canada’s investment, which will spur the company’s future growth and create new high-value jobs for Ontario families.”

Axel Westerhaus, Ph.D., member of the executive board of H.C. Starck GmbH in Germany, the parent company of H.C. Starck Canada, said, “We want to thank the Province of Ontario for making an AMIS loan available to H.C. Starck Canada. The installation of innovative technologies in the Sarnia facility enables us to diversify our manufacturing site, bringing the production of innovative powder products closer to the North American customers. Sarnia, Lambton, is the location of choice for this investment due to the excellent local infrastructure and availability of a skilled workforce. Support through the AMIS program facilitated our decision-making process and made the Sarnia investment interesting and attractive for us despite recessionary times.”
