Manufacturing

MADE IN THE EDMONTON METROPOLITAN REGION 

Manufacturing has cemented itself as an integral part of the regional economy, serving as both a standalone industry and a critical component to the success and growth of other industries.

From medical devices to intelligent farming equipment, from massive earth movers in the oilsands to nano-materials, the Edmonton Metropolitan Region is home to an incredible array of manufacturers and manufacturing capability.

The region is also home to a foreign trade zone, allowing companies to ship materials and unfinished products here where they can be manufactured or assembled and sold on to global markets as Canadian products within existing trade agreements. This is a major advantage in today’s challenging trade environment.

The region is also well connected by air, rail, and road to important global markets.

Meet our Leaders


"What we have is an advanced manufacturing base with incredible technology and world-class expertise. We don’t need to look at going overseas to have manufacturing done. The benefit financially is to have it done here where the quality control and quality assurance is to the highest standards.”  


- Cole Rosentreter, Founder and CEO of Pegasus Imagery, on the Edmonton Metropolitan Region

Cold weather specialization 


As a great northern region, the winter environment has made our manufacturing sector one of the most resilient and specialized in the world, with knowledge on how to adapt to extreme climates anywhere.

Petrochemicals


Readily-available resources from Canada's oilsands — the world’s 3rd largest oil deposit — and massive natural gas reserves, fuel a prosperous petrochemical cluster. Inputs are easily and affordably transported to the region where they are manufactured into $13.5 billion worth of hydrocarbon feedstocks such as propane, ethylene, cellulose acetate, and polyethylene each year.

A key component to the success of this industry is Alberta's Industrial Heartland, the epicenter of petrochemical processing in Western Canada. More than 40 national and multinational companies operate in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland, representing over $40 billion in current capital investment. Featuring world-class infrastructure and logistics support, the Heartland is the ideal location for industry investment.
