KPMG Manufacturing Insights: Productivity Improvement Seminar

Get ready. The robots are coming.

According to recent research, advanced industrial technologies and in particular, robotics are reportedly at an inflection point. The implications of advanced industrial automation are lower costs and higher capabilities that are set to reshape the global manufacturing industry.
In order for manufacturers in high-cost jurisdictions to remain competitive it will be essential to find productivity improvements and cost savings. Robots are the answer.  Predictions indicate that in the next decade, almost a quarter of automated tasks will be performed by robots – up from 10 per cent today.
Join our expert panel at this KPMG Manufacturing Insights Breakfast Seminar to learn more about how advanced industrial automation can improve your bottom line.
Tait Carroll of Inland Integration will  present Baxter and lead a live demonstration with the robot which was featured in the lead story in the February 10, 2015 Globe and Mail: 
Jacqueline Gustafson will provide an update on SR&ED (Scientific Research & Experimental Development) tax incentives and opportunities of how you could use the program to purchase a technology like Baxter.
