Investment supports leading-edge system to benefit construction industry

$920,500-contribution for rural advanced manufacturer to expand facility, scale up and create 15 jobs

FedDev Ontario announced a contribution of $920,500 for iSpan Systems LP, a manufacturer of light steel frame building systems for the construction industry, to scale up production of its easy-to-install steel floor joist system—TotalJoist.

Made from 90 percent recycled steel sourced within Canada, TotalJoist is an environmentally-friendly framing solution that allows clients to increase design options by allowing for longer spans that create larger and more adaptable rooms. This system creates efficiencies in cost, time and installation for building contractors, and contributes to a cleaner, safer and more sustainable environment.

FedDev Ontario's contribution will allow iSpan Systems LP to expand its manufacturing facility by 13,000 square feet and acquire advanced manufacturing equipment to automate and streamline its production of TotalJoist™. This project will position the company to grow and become more competitive in new and existing global markets, and will create up to 15 new skilled jobs in the County of Brant.

“FedDev Ontario’s commitment is helping to solidify iSpan Systems LP in our community by allowing us to expand our manufacturing facility, invest in our people through job creation initiatives, and maintain our competitiveness as we continue to offer unique, innovative and leading edge building solutions for Canadian and global markets", said Walter Koppelaar, President, iSpan Systems LP.
