Canada welcomes F. List’s first production facility outside of Austria

F. List has inaugurated its first manufacturing plant outside of Austria – a 59,000ft² production facility in Laval, Greater Montréal, for F. List Canada. The interior manufacturer intends to recruit as many as 100 specialists over the next two years. It currently has positions for cabinetmakers, veneer experts, production managers and quality assurance specialists.

“Investing in Canada is very important to our company’s future growth and success in aerospace,” said Katharina List-Nagl, CEO of F. List. “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 center of Canadian operations here in Laval, where we are so close to so many great aerospace businesses and opportunities.”

As well as supplying wood veneer for business jet interior projects, the company will finish and assemble interior components, perform refurbishment work, and provide product and customer support. The facility, designated as F. List’s Veneer Competence Centre for flame-retardant wood veneers, also includes a showroom and a veneer selection area.

“We will be serving not only the thriving local market in Canada, but across North America with our quality workmanship and F. List spirit,” said Sean Johnson, CEO of F. List Canada. “We are committed to building and growing our presence here, having already invested millions of dollars in specialized production equipment, and recruiting top local talent.”

More than C$20m (US$15.6m) is being invested in the venture, including C$10m (US$7.8m) by the end of 2018. A total of C$1.2m (US$900,000) in financial support is being contributed by the Government of Québec, and C$1m (US$780,000) from Economic Development Canada for Québec regions toward infrastructure and equipment.
