Canada Makes once again to lead trade mission to Formnext in Germany

Canada Makes is once again looking for delegates interested in joining a trade mission to the Formnext trade-show in Frankfurt Germany November 13 to 16th. The four-day fact-finding mission will focus on additive manufacturing (AM) and offer the opportunity to meet with leading additive manufacturing companies and experts.

Formnext is the leading AM trade-show and the next generation of intelligent manufacturing solutions. It focuses on the efficient realization of parts and products, from their design to serial production. See cutting-edge technologies your company can leverage to gain a competitive edge and the latest expertise that can help in reducing your time-to-market. For more about Formnext click here.

Trade missions are about opening doors, gaining insights, business-to business contacts, information and tools for Canadian businesses, especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Martin Petrak, President and CEO of Precision ADM, had this to say about trade missions. “The Canada Makes trade mission to Germany was a great way for our company to connect with international additive manufacturing leaders. Being part of the delegation also gave us the opportunity to meet with other Canadian companies interested in collaborating on national and international business opportunities.”

David Saint John, Director of Innovation and Advanced Manufacturing
 Linamar Corporation said this about being a Canada Makes delegate, “The trade delegation organized by Canada Makes turned what would a been a good conference into a great one.  Any single attendee can be lost in the crowd, but when you are a part of a dedicated group of interested and engaged delegates you become hard to overlook.”

The Canada Makes delegation visited Fraunhofer booth and were introduced to some very interesting information, like the lattice structure Fraunhofer produced on their EOS W400.

The delegation will continue to arrange meetings with leading AM companies and meet with global leaders in additive manufacturing.

The opportunities Formnext offers was already obvious to the delegates after the first day, making this trade mission an excellent investment in time and money.
