 "The BWA, in the short time we have been a member, has been a great resource for our company.  The seminars about lean manufacturing are invaluable and have really caused me to reevaluate all our manufacturing processes.
 The network meetings offer insight, information and networking opportunities that are incredibly focused and relevant.
 And my favourite part is the plant tours - they are fantastic!"
 
Simon Lloyd, Springwater Woodcraft

 "Through the BWA, I have been trained in the basics of lean manufacturing and through discussions and visits with BWA staff and other members of the group, I have gained insights into many ways of improving my business. Before joining the BWA I had concerns that this group's activities would not be that relevant to my particular type of business - I was wrong.
 The BWA is very well managed and has an enthusiastic membership.  I look forward to my continued learning and participation in this group."

Bob Nadon, Upper Canada Stretchers


 "Participation in the SR&ED project helped our company to complete our claim without the use of consultants, resulting in savings worth many times the cost of our membership."

Andrew Schuster, Crate Designs
