Four new videos have been released that celebrate local manufacturers, their products and the occupations behind them.

The We Make It Here videos, one for each Grand Erie municipality, showcase local manufacturers who make a diverse range of goods, ranging from biodegradable drinking straws to military parts, chiropractic tables to bird food, irrigation equipment to communications antennas, and more.

The 12 companies featured in the videos are:

  • Brantford: Patriot Forge, Stone Straw, Apotex Pharmachem
  • Brant County: iSPAN Sytems, Wade Antenna, Apogee Ceramics
  • Haldimand County: Armstrong Milling, Elite Manufacturing, Cargo Ease
  • Norfolk County: On Time Precision Components, Lonestar Welding, Cadman Power

The We Make It Here videos were produced by the Workforce Planning Board in partnership with the companies, municipal economic development departments, the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board and the Grand Erie District School Board. The project was funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.

The videos build on manufacturing videos released in 2018 and 2017.
