TM4 awarded 4M$ grant for the continuous improvement of its product line
MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 2, 2017 /CNW/ TM4 was today awarded a 4M$ grant from the government of Canada for the continuous improvement of its product line and the development of new technologies.
The funding is being allocated through the Automotive Supplier Innovation Program, which supports research and development activities by companies that provide components, parts and production systems for the vehicles of the future. This investment is part of the Government of Canada’s Innovation and Skills Plan, which aims to make this country a global centre for innovation—one that drives economic growth and leads to better skills, jobs and opportunities for all Canadians.
“If Canada is to succeed in making the cars of the future, we must embrace greener, more sustainable technologies. The advanced research and development projects that give rise to these technologies create the well-paying middle-class jobs of the future and challenge today’s auto workers to enhance their skill set. By having a workforce with skills that are in demand and the technologies that will shape the future of the industry, Canada’s auto sector can secure its place in the global supply chain of tomorrow.”– The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development
