Let me bring you in on a little secret – there are many manufacturers who are doing well in Ontario and across Canada! Contrary to the pervasive misconception that is common in the media these days, manufacturers and distributors are not only surviving but thriving!
The old ways are no longer the best ways…
Notice that I didn’t say that manufacturing as a whole is doing well, there are still many companies that are struggling because they haven’t changed the way they operate. They haven’t realized that there is a new “normal” and they have to re-evaluate how they do everything throughout their operations to compete.
There is a better way…
The manufacturers and distributors that are succeeding realize that they have to take advantage of anything that will help them reduce costs and increase productivity so they can maximize their return from their people and equipment. And by the way, they’re often great places to work as well!
