The North American manufacturing industry is poised for growth in 2019 and beyond. Because of this, Canada’s vast supply chain of manufacturers should explore opportunities to scale operations, become more productive, and improve worker skills to support tech innovation. As the industry continues to experience growth, it’s important for businesses and industry leaders to connect and discuss current trends, challenges, and opportunities within the sector.
