Manufacturing

Labour costs in the City of Kawartha Lakes are, comparatively speaking, much lower than in nearby larger metropolitan areas. Occupancy and construction costs are also lower. The skilled labour pool and telecommunications infrastructure needed to successfully operate thriving commercial enterprise are all readily available.

This has in turn resulted in attracting more than 100 manufacturers to the area. Companies such as Crayola; Pickseed Canada Inc., known internationally for its forage and grass seeds and hybrid corn; Armada Toolworks, which is primarily an automotive parts supplier that produces plastic injection molded; and minor assemblies, and T. S. Manufacturing Ltd. which produces wood and other materials handling equipment.

Over 25% of this manufacturing base is actively exporting to markets around the globe.
