New plant-based manufacturer sets up at EIA

[ July 9, 2020   //   ]

More private investment is coming to Edmonton International Airport (EIA) in 2020. Manufacturing company Plant Plus will be establishing their production line in the Edmonton Metro Region as the newest tenant in EIA’s Airport City beginning in early July.

Plant Plus’ Plant Fiber Polymer tech (PFP tech) products are made from natural plant materials and have been shown by various third-party laboratories not to contain or release toxins. They are reusable, recyclable, compostable alternatives to plastic or paper.

By locating their production line and distribution center at EIA and joining the Alberta Aerospace and Technology Centre (AATC), Plant Plus will be able to participate in more collaborative opportunities with partner companies on airport and with EIA’s regional commercial partners. This strategic move will allow Plant Plus to introduce their advanced plant fibre technology into Canada. This move will also help strengthen EIA’s strategic efforts to help diversify Alberta’s and the rest of western Canada’s economy, while expanding economic activity at the airport.

“We are excited and proud to join EIA’s business family! It’s a great opportunity to have a strong business partner to support us in our early stages. The goal of introducing integrated plant fiber technology into Canada will finally be achieved, and it will contribute into EIA-AATC’s green system for a better and sustained economic cycle,” said – Chenghsun Hsu, CEO & Founder of Plant Plus.
