What is Advanced Manufacturing?

Advanced manufacturing combines science and technology with manufacturing capabilities to improve how we make things, leading to new and better products that are unique, smart, cleaner, and often autonomous.

Advanced manufacturing enterprises don’t just assemble or make things; they use cutting edge technologies, business and engineering know-how, software, data analytics, and artificial intelligence to solve problems – and address some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

Some of the industries that are at the forefront of advanced manufacturing in Canada include biomanufacturing and medical technologies, clean and autonomous vehicles, aerospace, robotics and automation, agrifood and agricultural equipment, textiles, electronics, 3D printing, and more.

Why is advanced manufacturing important? Because it builds things better, safer, cleaner, and more productively for a better world.
