The cabinet manufacturer is spending $650,000 on new finishing line equipment that uses a water-based curing process that reduces emissions and will reduce drying time from two hours to five minutes.
"The new finishing process allows us to offer an environmentally responsible product to our clients while maintaining our high standards for quality," said Laurysen vice-president Caroline Castrucci in a statement.
The company was started in 1,200-foot garage almost 40 years ago and currently occupies 55,000 square feet of manufacturing space. It sells directly to consumers and contractors, as well as through a North American and overseas dealer network.
The provincial government, through the Eastern Ontario Development Fund, contributed $97,500 to the purchase.
