June 12, 2023

Stittsville, Ont. – The Ontario government is supporting an investment of $26,313,302 by Laurysen Kitchens Ltd. to boost local manufacturing and create 20 new good-paying jobs. As part of this investment, the government is providing Laurysen Kitchens Ltd. with more than $2 million in funding through the Regional Development Program’s Eastern Ontario Development Fund.

This funding was announced today by Goldie Ghamari, Member of Provincial Parliament for Carleton and John Jordan, Member of Provincial Parliament for Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston.

“Our government is building a strong Ontario and strengthening the economy,” said MPP Goldie Ghamari. “Key investments like this transcend local impact and will benefit the entire region. Laurysen Kitchens Ltd. is a cornerstone of the business community in Stittsville, and this investment will create more good-paying jobs for workers to support families. This investment will also benefit homeowners and developers the company works with throughout Ottawa and Eastern Ontario, as Laurysen continues to deliver nationally award-winning designs and craftsmanship while providing customer service and building relationships as only a generations-old family business can do.”

“Laurysen Kitchen’s innovative manufacturing facility is well-placed in one of Ontario’s fastest growing communities,” said MPP John Jordan. “As we work with community partners to create new jobs in the skilled trades demanded by a changing economy, this is exactly the kind of investment that lets industry leaders know that we ARE open and ready for business!”

Laurysen Kitchens Ltd. is investing $26,313,302 to expand manufacturing capacity at the Carleton Place facility and consolidate operations at one location. This exciting new project will help to support growth, as well as drive production efficiencies through automation and integration. Twenty new jobs will be created through this project.

“Laurysen Kitchens is committed to providing high quality kitchens cabinets, vanities and closets at an affordable price,” said Caroline Castrucci, CEO of Laurysen Kitchens Ltd. “Over the past five years we have experienced a surge in demand in our markets across the province. This state-of-the-art expansion of our production facility in Carleton Place will allow us to increase our capacity, develop new processes and continue to grow our well-established business. The support we have received from the Ontario government has helped make this dream a reality; we are very proud to be Ontario made.”
