Supplier & Cluster Development
With a strong commitment to Small and Medium Sized Businesses (SMBs) and an internationally recognized supplier development program, Manitoba Aerospace helps build the local and regional supply base; prepares suppliers to work with Federal Government Obligors (OEMs, Tier 1 and Tier 2 organizations); and supports improved access to world markets.
OEMs are looking for Prime Contractors to provide major assemblies and to manage the subcontractors in the supply chain. The Primes, in turn, are developing strategic relationships with a fewer number of preferred suppliers who can offer more integrated solutions and meet their stringent quality assurance, business systems and supply chain standards.
Manitoba Aerospace’s affiliated company, CESD Services, provides assessment services and individual coaching for SMBs on how to use innovative and results-driven tools/practices so they can effectively identify and successfully pursue Industrial Technical Benefits (ITB) and other business opportunities with OEMs and Primes.
In addition to preparing SMBs to meet the requirements of the OEMs/Primes, Manitoba Aerospace also supports Business to Business (B2B) opportunities locally, nationally and internationally.
