Mike Baker, Executive Director of the Bluewater Wood Alliance discussing the state of Wood Industry 4.0 adoption and Innovation Networks.

Industry 4.0 is the link that has been accelerating manufacturers’ productivity, efficiency, and ability to tackle new markets crossing boarders, further advancing Canada’s exporting capabilities.  The importance of automation is ever-present as individuals and organizations battle for more time at work.  Leveraging the power of concepts like Industry 4.0 and being connected to Innovation Networks are proving to be catalysts of success for wood manufacturers and their supply chain.
