RIMOWA Celebrates Grand Opening of New Expanded Manufacturing Facility in North America

Rimowa Gmbh has expanded their Canadian manufacturing footprint with the official grand opening of their new North American headquarters located in Cambridge, Ontario. This exciting occasion was marked with a private on-site luncheon and factory tour, followed by a signature RIMOWA case design and creation tutorial, in collaboration with the esteemed production team. Attendees were invited to create their own unique RIMOWA case. The facility tour and case design activities highlighted the skilled labour and advanced manufacturing technologies now housed in Cambridge, ON, an impressive contribution to the local community which has already been highlighted by the Government of Ontario in their Ontario Business Report. When selecting the location for the expanded North American RIMOWA manufacturing facilities, the brand considered which opportunities existed to create more of their high-performance and superior designed cases while also translating into more Canadian jobs. In addition to creating a number of permanent jobs for skilled workers in Ontario, the new 80,000 square foot building houses some of the most advanced manufacturing technologies in RIMOWA's history. The facility, located at 90 Vondrau Drive, was built by Melloul-Blamey Construction Inc., an innovative construction company in Southern Ontario. From construction to employment, RIMOWA has fully embraced Canadian talent in all aspects of its new manufacturing facilities and operations, a trend the company plans to openly embrace on an ongoing basis moving forward.
