MASON, Ohio — September 29, 2022 — Downlite Outdoor, a division of Downlite — a down and feather processor and a supplier of responsibly sourced performance fills to the outdoor, home furnishings, and hospitality markets — expanded its new facility in Mississauga, Canada to meet growing demand.
With the rapid growth of Downlite in the Canadian outdoor market, the new facility has exceeded expectations with the Canadian business. Business growth has exceeded plan by 15 percent.

Little did we know we would be expanding so soon. The expansion will allow us to continue to grow and most importantly, continue to provide our customers with premium quality product, whenever they need it.”
The new facility opened in June 2021, with the goal to process and deliver down quickly to Downlite’s Canadian customers. The Downlite facility has state-of-the-art European equipment, allowing for maximization of cleanliness and performance in down production. The expansion helps provide fresher material and shorter lead times, while increasing processing and distribution capabilities for the North American market in both Home and Outdoor.
