Local Paisley company pivots its manufacturing to meet PPE needs

Abraflex has become one of the Canadian companies that has been able to pivot in its manufacturing.

Located in Paisley, the company is the exclusive supplier of the Mark III Plastic Suit for Bruce Power and was one of the first supply chain companies to locate in Bruce County as part of the Economic Development and Innovation Initiative.

Today, it is now manufacturing hospital gowns as part of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for front-line workers during COVID-19.

The Indigenous owned company co-owned by Desiree Norwegian also manufactures specialized products such as gaskets, material handling services, decontamination tenting services and packing and seals of all types and last year (2019) added an additional 10,000 square feet to its Paisley facility.
