Executive Recruiters for Manufacturing


Your manufacturing recruitment agency

Quality and sustainability

With an abundance of natural resources and a deep pool of skilled labour, Canadian manufacturing has a worldwide reputation for quality and reliability.

Current challenges in growing our market share include sustainability concerns, waste management, the effects of climate change, and the need to lower costs in order to compete across international markets. Consequently, recruiting requirements have changed.

 Manufacturing firms are actively seeking operational improvements and design innovation through automation, robotics, and advanced instrumentation. Much of this is heavily driven through AI initiatives, balanced by sustainability concerns.  In addition, Canada is in the forefront of supply chain automation, with Canadian expertise recognized worldwide.
