KMA BREAKFAST – PAN OSTON COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIPS
Date(s) - Tue, Nov 14
7:30 am - 10:00 am
Peterborough Golf & Country Club
At our next KMA breakfast meeting, Pan Oston will be discussing their experience in collaborating with local partners to form a successful growth business.
Small and medium sized manufacturers are often faced with some difficult challenges when trying to enlarge and diversify their customer base. Similar issues also arise when looking for innovative ways to increase their value add to their existing customers. In addition to capacity constraints, manufacturers also find customer needs demand capabilities beyond their core manufacturing strengths. Expanding into those new areas presents significant risks that many businesses are unwilling or unable to take. When faced with a maturing core business, Pan Oston developed an innovative and very successful solution through collaborative partnerships with several local businesses. This approach won the Best of Show Award at the 2016 Grocery Innovations Show in Toronto and has lead to the development of Complete Retail Solutions Inc.
The Peterborough region has the advantage of having a very diverse manufacturing sector. At the next KMA meeting you will have the opportunity to learn how to leverage this diversity to strengthen your business through collaborative partnerships.
