F. LIST GMBH (also known as F/LIST), an Austrian high-end business jet interior manufacturer, officially inaugurated the new 59,000-ft² production facility of F. LIST CANADA CORP. in the Greater Montréal area and announced plans to hire up to 100 specialists within the next two years.
“Investing in Canada is very important to our company’s future growth and success in aerospace,” said Mrs. Katharina List-Nagl, Chief Executive Officer of F. LIST GMBH, during a ceremony held at the new plant on Boulevard des Rossignols in Laval. “F/LIST has a long and successful history in Canada, working very closely with Bombardier and other partners in the region. It made great business sense to set up our centre of Canadian operations here in Laval, where we are so close to so many great aerospace businesses and opportunities.”
The Laval facility, which is the first manufacturing plant F/LIST has opened outside of Austria, represents an investment of more than CAN$20 million for the company, including CAN$10 million by the end of 2018. It provides high-quality wood veneers for business and executive jet interiors, finishing and assembling of interior components, refurbishment of interiors, and product and customer support. The facility also houses a showroom and a veneer selection area as part of its designation as F/LIST’s Veneer Competence Centre for flame retardant wood veneers, key components of its interior finishing business.
F. LIST received financial support of CAN$1.2 million from the Government of Québec and CAN$1 million from Economic Development Canada for Québec regions towards infrastructure and equipment for the project totalling more than CAN$8.5 million by the end of 2018.Email Post to a Friend
