From its historic roots as the location of Canada's first oil gusher in 1862, Lambton County has grown to become Canada's petrochemical and refining centre. It is also home to the growing Sarnia-Lambton Biohybrid Chemistry Cluster. The area's diverse range of industries include chemical production, bio-based manufacturing and research, agriculture, automotive, engineering, instrumentation, metal and plastics fabrication, machining, and environmental solutions for process and other types of manufacturing industries.
Bio companies such as BioAmber, Woodland Biofuels, KmX, and GreenCore Composites have chosen Sarnia-Lambton for their manufacturing or pilot plants because of the synergies offered by the Sarnia-Lambton Biohybrid Chemistry Cluster.
