Fanshawe’s Canadian Centre for Product Validation signs new partnership agreements
April 7, 2016

Fanshawe College has announced three new partnership agreements that have been signed between private sector testing facilities and the Canadian Centre for Product Validation (CCPV).


“I'm very pleased we are going to be working collaboratively with commercial test labs and manufacturers in Ontario,” says Ben Cecil, chief business officer for CCPV. “It's a win-win for both parties when we can leverage each other's engineering expertise and infrastructure capabilities to better serve our clients.”


Two private sector test labs, Thermodyne Engineering and Global EMC, and a leading Ontario manufacturer, Raymond EMC, have each signed a memorandum of understanding to partner with CCPV over five years. Under these agreements, the CCPV and each company will jointly develop new testing technologies to serve emerging test markets currently unserved in Canada. These testing technologies will enhance Canadian manufacturing capacity, build national testing capability and support new, high-tech jobs within Canada.


“Product testing saves valuable time and resources, allowing a business to effectively manage their innovation investments and improve their profitability,” says Bruce Alexander, owner, Raymond EMC. “Partnering with Fanshawe's CCPV provides us with access to a research group with a high level of expertise in our field. We are confident that our collaborative work with CCPV will result in the development of new products and growth in our business operations and profitability.”
