Montreal, Quebec – March 26, 2012 – The most pressing challenge facing Quebec manufacturers in 2012 is the need to do more with less, reports a recent survey conducted by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME). The survey is being released just weeks before the launch of a newly-expanded Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show (MMTS), which features an inspirational keynote address by Canadian senator and former CFLer Larry Smith.
Former CFLer, Canadian Senator to Inspire Quebec Manufacturers as Industry Looks to Improve Productivity, Lower Costs
More than one-half of manufacturers surveyed by SME cited improving workforce productivity as a primary concern, followed closely by the need to update equipment and processes, and to lower overall production costs.
