The Paris Wincey Mills – Kevin Haight

The Paris Wincey Mills

In the heart of Paris, Ontario is 31 Mechanic St. and the location of the newly renovated Wincey Mills Company.  This building is one of the most exciting Brant County real estate projects we have had the privilege of representing.


The Paris Wincey Mills Company was a textile producer founded in 1889 and at its peak employed over 125 local workers. This building is the only one remaining on the site and is indicative of industrial buildings at the turn of the 20thcentury. Large windows allowed for plenty of natural light and the high ceilings accommodated the large equipment  used in the milling process.

Wincey Mills prospered during World War 1  as  a result of  large government contracts to produce the khaki yard goods needed for the Canadian Armed Forces uniforms. Times change, history marches on and the mill finally closed for good in 1959.

An amazing team of business developers, contractors, and seasoned commercial experts are estoring the old mill to its former glory.
