Here is a good news story about Canadian manufacturers: They are finding a niche in the global market by creating value through ingenuity and innovation.
The key component that Transformix adds to this value chain is intellectual property – the design and construction smarts of its engineers. That’s the model that is helping Canadian manufacturers transform from the low-skill assembly model of the past. Those that survive in this new order will do so by innovating and adding engineering skill to the vast tentacles of the worldwide value chain. No longer will it be good enough just to build simple parts or devices for the local market.
Creating value through innovation will mean we don’t have to compete on price, and sell ourselves short. We need to apply the same principles to commodities.
