Consortium accepting applications

Imagine Penticton Economic Development Services just announced that the Sustainability For the Okanagan consortium of companies is currently accepting applications for membership.

The consortium, officially launched in April, focuses on creating lean enterprises and currently includes the Penticton Foundry Ltd., Slimline Manufacturing Ltd. and Penticton Fabricating. The consortium organizations combine their resources and expertise to enhance their individual operations and knowledge to create business success. Members learn from each other and share with each other in a structured environment. For more information on sustainability consortiums visit www.hpsinc.ca.
