Oro Medonte, Ontario – Hagerty is joining Oro Station in a strategic partnership announced on Wednesday. Oro Station is the developer of a new 200-acre innovation hub, dedicated to automotive innovation, located 130 km north of Toronto.
The 500,000 sq ft industrial site will see various dedicated areas for automotive research, engineering and development and will also include a 4.1 kilometre FIA Grade 3 motor circuit with dynamic driving areas. Oro Station is set to be home for innovative, nimble, forward-thinking businesses to take charge of their involvement in the future of transportation.
“The vision of Oro Station is to create an environment dedicated to all things automotive, with a focus on innovation, preservation and education,” says Geoffrey Campbell, founder of Oro Station. “The project has been over a decade in the making and the result of relentless passion and we are thrilled to be working with Hagerty. Their goal of growing automotive culture and expanding the number of driving experiences available to car enthusiasts is one we enthusiastically share.”
With this partnership, Hagerty adds just one more thing to its portfolio, on top of being a global automotive lifestyle brand and the world’s largest provider of specialty insurance for the classic, collector and enthusiast vehicles.
“Geoffrey’s vision for this facility is incredibly comprehensive and fits our corporate mission to save driving and car culture for future generations,” said Amy Pearson-Blay, vice president of Hagerty Canada.
A potential collaboration between the two companies, according to Pearson-Blay, could be combined support for post-secondary education and courses to bring the next generation into the hobby.
