It never ceases to amaze me the quality of businesses in Manitoba.

Last week, it was more of the same as the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC) spent the day in Steinbach touring local businesses with Steinbach Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Linda Peters and President Cameron Bergen. The Steinbach Chamber has been extremely active over the past year growing their membership by 100 members and developing a promotional video showcasing Steinbach as an attractive place to live, work and play.

The day started with a tour of Hanover Door Systems whose patented lift systems provides one-of-a-kind overhead doors throughout North America. The company has experienced growth of 27% in the past year alone. From there, a tour of Barkman Concrete showcased their recent multi-million dollar capital investment that has allowed them to triple their production capacity of manufactured precast concrete products for residential, commercial, agricultural and municipal applications. The day concluded with a tour of the massive Valeant Pharmaceuticals plant  where we learned all Cold FX medication is produced and distributed from.

Thank you to the Steinbach Chamber and all the businesses for welcoming MCC to your beautiful community.
