With annual exports from Alberta totaling $13 billion, 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 advancements in petrochemicals to nano-materials, the region’s manufacturing ecosystem is home to nearly 40% of Alberta’s manufacturing output.
We specialize in high-value manufacturing of sophisticated customized products, including digital products, clean technology, value-added products from the energy industry, metals and machinery and more.
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.
A skilled and diversified pool of talent, a cluster of manufacturing & technology expertise, affordable energy prices and access to global markets by air, rail and road make the region a manufacturing powerhouse.
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 to global markets as Canadian products within existing trade agreements. This is a major advantage in today’s challenging trade environment.
“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.”
