Intertek, a leading provider of quality solutions to industries worldwide, announced a sponsorship agreement with Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters including support for CME’s Manufacturing Month – providing tours at its Lachine QC and Mississauga ON testing laboratories on October 8th and 14th respectively.
“Intertek’s expertise and services span virtually every industry across the globe from agricultural and automotive to textiles and toys, from building products to electronics, food, pharmaceuticals, petroleum, and cargo inspections and analysis,” says Joe Keating, Intertek’s managing director for Canada. “Through our sponsorship of CME, we want Canadian companies to know they can count on Intertek to get their products tested and certified – supporting their access to the global marketplace.”
As part of Manufacturing Month activities, Intertek is hosting two open house events which include laboratory tours, lunch and optional technical talks on topics ranging from “Electrical Safety & Performance Testing” to “Product Performance Benchmarking” and “ISO Certification and Custom Audit Solutions”. These events bring together Intertek experts from several divisions for an afternoon of networking and Q&A with existing and prospective customers.
Intertek collaborates with and supports some of the most well-known brands and businesses around the globe. According to David Muil, Intertek’s global vice-president business development, “Manufacturing Month is a perfect time to open our doors and open the dialogue for how we can help more Canadian businesses achieve their goals for both profitability and growth. We invite local business leaders to explore what Intertek has to offer.”
