Windsor battery plant the largest private sector investment in Ontario history
Site preparations already started by city and construction expected to begin in late summer
For what local officials billed as the largest private sector investment in Ontario history, Premier Doug Ford confirmed Wednesday in Windsor that the city has landed the nation’s first auto battery factory.
Ford joined Stellantis and LG Energy Solution representatives, federal Innovation, Science and Industry minister Francois-Philippe Champagne and Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens to announce the major investment that will boost Windsor’s economy and the local auto industry.
The federal and provincial governments and city of Windsor will combine to offer incentives expected to total hundreds of millions of dollars.
“It needed cooperation between governments at the federal, provincial and municipal levels to get this across the line.”
