The “Proudly Made in Bay of Quinte” logo makes it easy for residents and visitors to find and enjoy locally made food, drinks, clothing and specialty items. But you can’t attach a logo to the output of all manufacturers, which employ 11,000 direct jobs and keep the Bay of Quinte region’s economy strong.
Here are 5 Proudly Made in Bay of Quinte products you won’t find in a boutique or on the grocery store shelf:
You might not be able to directly buy these 5 items, but you encounter them just by living everyday life. Even more important for the local economy, businesses all over the world really rely on them:
1. Automotive climate control systems in your car, made by Hanon Systems Canada
2. Process cooling products used in ice cream machines, refrigerated displays and air conditioning systems, made by Fin-Aire
3. Plastic medical tubing your doctor might use from GlobalMed Inc.
4. The gas pump you use on your way home, assembled and finished by Wayne Fueling Systems Canada
5. Wire and cable manufacturers that export to companies all over North America
Produced using innovation, technology and advanced manufacturing, these 5 items and so many other Bay of Quinte exports require a strong distribution system. This has fueled the region’s flourishing shipping service industry (from logistics to cold storage) creating another locally made success – you’ll see “Proudly Shipped from the Bay of Quinte” logos on 600 International Truckload Service (ITS) trucks.
Discover even more intriguing products that the Bay of Quinte produces, sells locally to manufacturers, and ships nationwide and abroad.
