Greetings and welcome to your member's page,

Almost nine years ago I met Al Diggins and Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium for the first time.

Having a lengthy career in manufacturing, I was intrigued by his idea that manufacturers could work together and share common challenges and cooperate to overcome them. My first thought was that it was kind of an intellectual co-op and I still think that is the case today. I have seen great things accomplished by total strangers sharing experiences and relationships being forged between manufacturers who have nothing else in common other than that they take a raw material and do something to it to add value.

It has been a wonderful experience to get into so many buildings across Nova Scotia and to meet so many great people but, as they say, all good things must come to an end!

In a few short months I will end my 40+ year career in manufacturing and I will hand EMC NS off to Sue Elliott your new Field Service Advisor who will, with her background in manufacturing and her years as a member of EMC, continue to help industry to grow by ‘Sharing and Stealing with Pride’, in the true spirit of EMC.

It has been a thrill, an honour and a pleasure to have met and worked with each and every one of you. Thanks for your support and your ongoing belief in what EMC does and can do for manufacturers of all shapes and sizes.

I will be travelling the province in the coming weeks to introduce Sue to everyone to ensure she gets off to a flying start!

Thanks again and keep up the good work
