Leading-edge technology and an innovative approach to new markets has earned Toronto’s Integran Corporation the title of Innovative Business of the Year.

The Ontario-based company, specializing in high performance metal products, developed a method of reducing costs for manufacturing advanced carbon fibre composite parts used extensively in aerospace and defence structures, but this innovative product is also taking the sporting goods market by storm. Their latest product, Nanovar, is a low thermal expansion, very hard metal coating for carbon fibre reinforced tooling. Integran’s Nanovar coating increases surface hardness by 15 times, adding durability and longevity to the tool resulting in reduced manufacturing costs and environmental impact by decreasing waste carbon fibre composite mould material.

For their unique business strategy, Integran Corporation was awarded Canada’s top innovator at Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters’ Eighth Annual Canadian Innovation Awards at the St. John’s Convention Centre this evening.

“Given our current economic times, there perhaps has never been a greater time and a greater need for Canadian Business to be more innovative”, said Jayson Myers, CME president. “With an increasingly global economy, Canadian business must rise to the challenge to compete on the world’s stage.”

“This year’s Canadian award winners are stories that all of Canada must celebrate. They are the key to strengthening Canadian competitiveness and solidifying Canada’s place as a global leader in the future.”
