Raufoss Technology Canada is investing $18 million in its Boisbriand facilities to meet the growing demand from electric vehicle manufacturers in North America. The manufacturer of automotive suspension parts is adding a new machining and assembly cell with around ten robots. A series of optimizations are also planned for cells that are already in operation.

This investment, which is accompanied by 35 new operator and electromechanic positions, will allow the company to accelerate its process of manufacturing forged aluminum parts for the next generation of new electric vehicles.

“With these investments, Raufoss is entering a highly strategic value chain, namely the manufacturing of electric vehicles in North America. This is a new step for Raufoss Canada which will have a very positive effect on our growth in Boisbriand,” declared Jean Meredith, co-president and CEO, Raufoss Canada. “For this new chapter, we have in place a well-equipped team of professionals who have proven themselves over the last 22 years! “.

“Quebec and Greater Montreal have assets that have contributed to the success of Raufoss Canada for more than 20 years. As we have seen with other projects, notably in Norway and Germany, skilled labor and access to a global economy are part of the equation to ensure the success of our activities. These assets are very present in Boisbriand, which contributes to our sustained growth in Quebec for more than 20 years,” declared Alfred HagerCFO, Raufoss Technology.

Aluminum control arms are considerably lighter than steel parts, an advantage particularly coveted by electric vehicle manufacturers seeking to reduce car weight to maximize battery capacity.
