The acquisition of Grand Harbour’s 45,000 square-foot facility marks the second manufacturing campus for Canada Goose in the Greater Toronto Area and adds 70 employees.
“From Asia to Europe to North America, we’re excited by the continued growing demand for Canada Goose products around the world. I’m proud to be leading the charge in rebuilding apparel manufacturing infrastructure; this is an important investment that not only expands our footprint, but significantly increases productivity by transforming a great factory into a world-class manufacturing campus through innovative technologies and processes,” said Dani Reiss, President & CEO, Canada Goose.
