Attention: Manufacturing, Business, Innovation, York Region
Consortium will allow York Region manufacturer’s to become more competitive with world-class best practices and services
York Region/ventureLAB/April 26, 2012- York Region and partner the Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC) will officially launch the York Region Consortium, Tuesday May 1, 2012, 7:30 -10:30 am at the Markham Convergence Centre [in the Showcase Room] at 7271 Warden Avenue in Markham.
EMC is an established non-profit organization with a wealth of experience in delivering support to manufacturers using a consortium model. Currently EMC has manufacturing consortium groups established across Ontario, and existing York Region manufacturers are already engaged in EMC’s York Region Consortium. EMC has also developed an on-line tool for connecting manufacturers that allows individual Regions to have a dedicated area with branded profile. EMC’s iMiN (www.iminonline.ca) web tool has five regions in the province set up, with the fifth region being Durham which is already live.
By moving forward together with EMC on York Region manufacturer’s initiatives, York Region is leveraging significant resources and expertise already available and making the most effective use of its own resources.
Manufacturers will learn how industry is leveraging the expertise and experience that already exists in manufacturing communities throughout Canada, and how that advantage increases through peer networking with other manufacturers. They will also gain access to world-class best practices and a comprehensive tool-box of value-added services designed from the ground up to help them grow and become more competitive.
