The Composites Innovation Centre (CIC) is moving to a new 21,000 square foot facility in the Tuxedo Business Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
According to CIC, the space is four times the size of its current location in Smartpark at the University of Manitoba, and a lease was recently signed with Terracon Development Ltd. with the relocation planned for December, 2011.
“This expansion ensures that the CIC will be able to continue to excel in its main focus of stimulating economic growth in Manitoba’s manufacturing sectors,” stated Kevin Lusk, CIC’s Chairman of the Board. “It also reconfirms the organization’s relevancy especially considering the very positive support that we have received from our major industry and government stakeholders”.
With details surrounding the new facility finalised, the CIC is actively seeking the right tenant to fill its vacant space in Smartpark. “Even though CIC is moving off the University of Manitoba’s campus, plans are in place to continue to strengthen its relationship with the academic community both locally and globally”, described Sean McKay, CIC’s Executive Director. “Particular emphasis has been placed on enabling researchers and students to co-locate within the facility and thus play a much more meaningful role in the Centre’s activities”.
