New Trillium Network platform provides Ontario advanced manufacturing information
The site gives access to more than 6,000 Ontario manufacturers.
A new online platform developed by the Trillium Network for Advanced Manufacturing provides information about more than 6,000 facilities in Ontario, ranging from automotive and aerospace to craft breweries and wineries.
TrilliumGIS, available at this link, can be used by manufacturers as they seek to identify potential customers, suppliers and partners; economic development officials at all levels of government; educational institutions looking for co-operative education and work-integrated learning partners; and site selectors looking for promising locations for new manufacturing investments.
Manufacturers are identified by industry and searches according to production networks, supply chains, type of business, Statistics Canada industry codes or location, and street addresses.
All of the data in TrilliumGIS are compiled from publicly-available sources of information.
“Ontario’s manufacturing sector is so large and so dynamic, and we will be constantly adding new plants, changing information, updating information and revising information,” says Dr. Brendan Sweeney, managing director of the Trillium Network for Advanced Manufacturing, in a statement.
Based out of Western University in London, Ont., the Trillium Network for Advanced Manufacturing is a provincially-funded non-profit organization that raises awareness of Ontario’s advanced manufacturing ecosystem.
