Plastics & Packaging

In order for Canada to compete globally long-term, more companies need to become exporters and current exporters need to export to new markets. The Government of Canada knows its largest manufacturers, food-processing producers, need competitive access to packaging. Here’s how you can make sure you aren’t left behind.

Industry Canada hopes plastic companies will take Canada to the “top of the intellectual chain .” Companies need support in order to be innovative and find solutions to world-wide problems—like better waste disposal systems, safer plastic materials or, making plastic parts for the nearby automotive sector to lessen the weight (and emissions) of cars. QEDC can help you with applications for Research and Development Grants  and many other government incentives.

Most plastics companies that service the food processing, aerospace,  automotive sectors and sectors are in Ontario. The Bay of Quinte, in particular, offers a competitive advantage based on its central North American location and skilled workforce. From ease of transport to lower overheads, you’ll have more of what you need in the Bay of Quinte.
