MANUFACTURING BUSINESS LEADERS AND INNOVATORS HONOURED
2023 award recipients to be recognized at CME’s Gala Awards Dinner
WINNIPEG (December 7, 2022) – Three local business leaders and two Manitoba companies will receive this year’s Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) Awards, which recognize individuals and businesses for their outstanding contribution in achieving world-class benchmarks in the manufacturing industry. Awards will be presented during Manitoba’s Manufacturing Week at CME’s annual Gala Dinner, March 23, 2023.
“While we’re starting to see the business environment return to pre-pandemic conditions after a challenging couple of years, these stories of resilience and spirit are more important than ever to inspire our local companies that, yes – we may be facing uncertainty now, but continued growth and success are just around the corner,” said Ron Koslowsky, CME Manitoba Vice President. “CME has been doing everything we can to alleviate stressors for manufacturers. It’s our hope that by highlighting success stories – whether they’re owed to one pivotal moment or hard, consistent work and dedication, we can inspire our community that growth and success is always within arm’s reach.”
