CME unveils new brand, releases updated website at Annual General Meeting & Manufacturing Conference

OTTAWA, November 7, 2018

Dennis Darby, President & CEO of Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters stated:

“After several months of work under the guidance of the National Board, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) unveiled its new brand and website today. CME refocused its brand, guiding principles and priorities to better serve its membership now and in the future.

The re-branding is an important opportunity that signifies a new approach to the organization’s contribution to the success of the manufacturing sector. To achieve our mission of enabling our members to successfully compete in Canada and internationally, and to ensure manufacturing is recognized by the public and by policy-makers as an innovative and important part of Canada’s economy, CME needed a brand that is at the image of today’s manufacturers: modern, efficient and innovative.

The new brand also marks a departure in how CME helps manufacturers grow. Focused on creating three streams that are defined by membership experience.

  • Innovation: Providing a suite of programs and services designed specifically for manufacturers, by manufacturers.
  • Connection: Accelerating success for manufacturers through events and other B2B networking opportunities.
  • Representation: Influencing decision-makers as the unified voice of industry to create and sustain a competitive environment for manufacturers.”
