Outerwear brand Canada Goose has acquired the Scarborough, Ontario based clothing manufacturer Grand Harbour Clothing Inc. to extend its homeland production facilities.

The 45,000 sq ft (ca. 4,200 sq m) facility is the second manufacturing campus for Canada Goose in the Greater Toronto area. With its 70 employees, Canada Goose expects to increase efficiency by 25 percent.

“This is an important investment that not only expands our footprint, but significantly increases productivity by transforming a great factory into a world-class manufacturing campus through innovative technologies and processes”, said Dani Reiss, president and CEO, Canada Goose.

The Scarborough site shall primarily produce the brand’s HyBridge Lite collection of lightweight jackets and vests which are a growth category for Canada Goose.  James Tang, owner of Grand Harbour Clothing, will continue to oversee operations as plant director.
