Advanced Manufacturing

We understand advanced manufacturing and know the technology is essential to Canada’s economic success. From small value-added, supply-chain firms to large multi-national players, TACTIX knows regulation and policy can make or break business.

For example, Canada’s aerospace industry faces an increasingly competitive global marketplace in both civilian and defence markets. Both are populated with a complex network of government programs, procurement opportunities, Industrial and Regional Benefit (IRB and ITB) policies and overlapping regulations. The smallest of tweaks by government can have unforeseen consequences for a company as it competes in a global market.
