Nothing tells a better story than their people
Abbotsford’s location is right next to the border as well as the port, which helps us get our product anywhere in the world. Also, we have a lot of industries here to support our manufacturing. If a saw breaks down at the mill, we’re not going two hours out of the bush to get it sharpened, we’ve got a guy right next door that can do that for us.
In my move to BC from Ontario and starting a new business in Abbotsford, I was impressed immediately by the warm welcome I received from the Economic Development Team. They introduced personally to the mayor and other department heads of the city, each of them extending the same friendly greeting. The team has been very accessible as a resource during my start-up. It was a great first impression and I look forward to building a thriving rubber company in Abbotsford! Thanks!
