PCM Molds and Barrday Join Research & Development Centre

20 May 2011

PCM Molds and Patterns and Barrday have recently joined the Canadian Advanced Composites Research & Development Centre bringing its total membership to ten.

The CCMRD is a virtual centre whose operations are managed by the Composites Innovation Centre and consists of several of the major composites aerospace companies and small and medium enterprises across Canada including: Bell Helicopter Textron Canada, Avior Integrated Products, Comtek Advanced Structures, Convergent Manufacturing Technologies, Profile Composites, Bristol Aerospace, a Division of Magellan, Cormer Group Industries and Boeing Canada Technology Winnipeg Division. Boeing’s Research & Technology Division also sits on its Board.

“Having small manufacturing enterprises seeing the benefit of and joining CCMRD really demonstrates the relevance of the organization to the Canadian advanced composites manufacturing industry,” explains Mike Hudek, CCMRD Executive Director, “and it also provides a meaningful advantage for CCMRD by now adding a mould manufacturing capability and a material developer/supplier to its competencies. Once we understood the intent of CCMRD to conduct precompetitive, collaborative projects to increase the technological capabilities of Canadian industry together with developing the supply chain by connecting SMEs with larger original equipment manufacturers, it was an easy decision to become part of this entity,” stated Ryo Okada, Barrday Project Manager of Research and Development.
