Mold makers are being invited to participate in a trade mission to Lublin, Poland during the week of June 16, setting the foundation for partnerships in an expanded European Union.

The Windsor/Essex County Development Commission has already arranged for meetings with eight mold making companies in Windsor, Ont.’s twin city, and plans to set up sessions with other Polish companies as well.

Wages in Poland are about one third of those in Canada, and the country’s mold making sector is “well developed and sophisticated,” the commission says. The country becomes a full member of the European Union (EU) in April, ensuring cooperation agreements that would allow sales into other EU countries without customs duties or non-tariff barriers.

Meetings will be set up under the auspices of the City of Windsor and the Canadian Embassy in Warsaw.

Joe Ouellette of Acrolab Ltd. will hold an information session in Windsor’s Cleary Auditorium on March 3, and will make a related presentation at the CAMM/CTMA joint dinner meeting on March 22.

Those interested in attending the trade mission must register by April 1.
