Nova Scotia   Protocase
Protocase Inc. is one of the region’s largest employers with 240 full time staff. The company provides customized enclosures and mass digital storage solutions for customers such as NASA, Apple, MIT, Google, Boeing and Microsoft.

Its streamlined manufacturing and mass customization processes allow the company to build fully finished custom enclosures and parts with no minimum order requirement for customers ranging from budding entrepreneurs to global corporations.

Thanks to increased demand, Protocase is building a new facility to house its rapidly growing data-storage division, 45Drives. The new building will enable the company to expand its manufacturing capacities and add approximately 50 new jobs within the first year.

Jaime Battiste, Member of Parliament for Sydney Victoria, on behalf of the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, announced a repayable contribution of $1.3 million through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) to Protocase for the construction of the new facility.
