Automation That Works -Tour

October 2, 2019 Sue ElliottNova Scotia

This September over 50 manufacturing professionals gathered from across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI to tour manufacturers who have been able to successful marry their understanding of process and process improvement to successful technology adoption. EMC member companies spent the day seeing and hearing from peers how they are making automation work.

I would like to thank Mauser Packaging, Springhill NS, Atlantic Autocold, Sackville NB and Organigram, Moncton NB for opening their doors and sharing with pride, their automation journeys.

What we saw:

Mauser Packaging – Mauser sets the bar for CI and data collection. The team in Springhill live a culture of continuous improvement, it is truly baked in.

Atlantic Autocold (Terra Beata)-  We saw what you can achieve with the right technology partners. A truly outstanding start-up providing a service not found anywhere else in Atlantic Canada.

Organigram – What we saw here was how important scalability is to the technological solutions you implement. Organigram has experienced exponential growth over the past four years and their processes and systems have had to adapt at an unprecedented rate. Finding partners to work with has been a challenge and technological solutions have had to be adapted to support a whole new industry.

At EMC we take our cues from you the member, you asked for an opportunity to see what your peers are doing to successfully implement new technologies. The Automation That Works tour was a result from this request. It wouldn’t have happened without the support of ACOA and you the members who participated.

The day was a tremendous success and we hope to provide similar opportunities in the future.
