Montreal, QC — As the recovery of the manufacturing sector continues to make headlines – including Bombardier Inc.’s recent announcement of its largest aircraft order to date, worth up to $6.7 billion – Quebec manufacturers will get a first-hand look at all that is new in the industry to help them improve their competitive edge and exploit growth opportunities, at the upcoming Plant Management and Design Engineering Show (PMDS) 2011.

Focused on the latest technologies in plant management, design engineering, automation, robotics and advanced manufacturing, the event takes place May 17-19, 2011 at Place Bonaventure, 800 de la Gauchetière St. W., Montreal.

“Now, more than ever, it’s essential for manufacturers to come together in an environment where they can compare the latest in equipment, technology and services in order to be as competitive as possible,” said Nick Samain, event manager with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), organizer of the event.

“PMDS provides a unique forum which brings together three critical elements for manufacturers – knowledge, technology and networking – each of which is critical to success in today’s highly-competitive business environment.”

PMDS – now in its 22nd year – provides a hands-on experience that connects top industry suppliers with qualified buyers seeking solutions. PMDS is produced in partnership with Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME), Canadian Wind Energy Association (CANWEA), Canadian Tooling and Machining Association (CTMA) and Quebec Aerospace Association (AQA), to ensure a strong representation and attendance across multiple industries.
