NSBI Approves Innovation Rebate

Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI) has approved a business development incentive in the form of an innovation rebate for Kohltech International Limited.

Kohltech International Limited designs and manufactures high quality and energy efficient windows and entrance systems.

The Debert-based company is proceeding with a $5,365,164 total capital investment to increase the capacity of their insulated glass fabrication line. This will be done through the implementation of a secondary glass cutting machine along with the infrastructure to support its addition. This new machine will use new technology to detect imperfections and improve safety and efficiency. They will also be introducing CNC equipment in their coatings and entrance door facilities to increase capacity and competitiveness.

The company is eligible to earn a maximum innovation rebate of $843,388 upon completion of its project, based on eligible Nova Scotia capital spending of $3,373,552.

To be considered for an innovation rebate, a company’s total project costs must be between $2 million and $15 million. An approved rebate is 25 per cent against eligible project costs.
