ABOUT US

Our Company’s History

In 1990, Marwood was founded by Chris Wood, Henry Spanjers, and Erwin Hawel in a 10,000 sq. ft. facility with two presses and nine employees in the small community of Brownsville, Ontario. We were excited to begin working with our first customer CAMI Automotive. From here, we have continued to expand to work with leaders in the industry and employ hundreds of skilled people throughout our five manufacturing facilities and two sales offices located across three countries.
