The Ontario government is investing nearly $ 860,000 in Coreprint Patterns through the Ontario Together Fund. The investment means there is now an Ontario-made source to manufacture essential components for COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for hospitals and laboratories across the province.
“Through the Ontario Together Fund, our government is making targeted investments in national businesses with ideas and solutions to help us navigate this pandemic and put us on the path to economic recovery,” said Vic Fedeli, Minister of Development economic, job creation and exchange. “Coreprint Patterns’ manufacture of vital and sought after components for COVID-19 testing is an example of Ontario innovation at its finest. Ontario manufacturers continue to improve our resilience to any challenge while strengthening our health care system and economy.
“I applaud Coreprint Patterns for responding to our government’s call to produce the essential supplies needed to protect Ontarians in the fight against COVID-19,” said Donna Skelly, MP for Flamborough-Glanbrook. “Coreprint Patterns is one of many Hamilton companies that have come up with innovative solutions to the problems created by the pandemic. “
Coreprint Patterns is a family business whose current core business is mold making. These are mainly for floor mold castings, match plate castings, precision castings and injection molded plastics, as well as machining with an emphasis on castings.
