The Greater Sudbury area is home to some of Ontario’s largest hard rock mines which are operated today by Vale, Falconbridge and Glencore. This concentration of mining activity has created a number of businesses which support the mining sector not only in Ontario but worldwide. Equipment made in the Sudbury area is used in mines as far away as South Africa and Australia. Many of the products manufactured at JVC Precision ships to the communities of Val Caron, Lively, Chelmsford, Whitefish and Capreol where they are integrated into mining equipment and vehicles destined for a life underground.
