A dynamic line-up of speakers at the CPIA Mould Makers Conference will help Canadian mold shops to compete in the challenging global maketplace by providing a true picture of moldmaking operations in Asia, and by presenting ideas to improve manufacturing and business conditions at home.<br>
The event, called Global Competition Insight and Action, takes place April 16-18 in Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON.<br>

Other topics on the agenda include a case history of lean manufacturing in the moldmaking sector, insurance issues and the unveiling of a SR&ED tax credit guidance paper developed by and for moldmakers.<br>
