Not everything is made in China. In fact, we still have a large manufacturing sector right here in Simcoe County. A new campaign called ‘Made in Simcoe County’ launched Wednesday to showcase some of our local success stories. Simcoe County’s manufacturing sector celebrated the launch during the third annual Manufacturers’ Forum at Tangle Creek Golf and Country Club in Thornton.

The County showed off its new ‘Made in Simcoe County’ marketing and advertising campaign during that forum. The mulit-media campaign shows success stories from a number of large players, like AGNORA in Collingwood and Tempo Plastics in Innisfil. The County’s Economic Development Office is also looking for 2019 participants to share their story.
