Advanced manufacturing

The future in manufacturing is advanced

Boost your company’s advanced manufacturing potential

The manufacturing industry is tightly woven into the Canadian economy, and companies looking to remain competitive — both domestically and globally — must evolve the way they work and the goods they produce. Whether it’s digitization, prototyping, robotics, or developing sustainable technologies, advanced manufacturing plays an ever more vital role.

Finding, recruiting and retaining skilled talent — especially with expertise in the digital sphere — necessary for advanced manufacturing initiatives can be challenging for large corporations, and even more so for SMEs.
