I just returned from a short trip to Halifax. The purpose of the trip was to coordinate with another company (scientists) to discuss collaboration on a series of tests. I have not really had the opportunity in my professional life to work with scientists or more specifically chemists before; I must say that there is a natural synergy between instrumentation/controls/software and all things chemical. I am really looking forward to see where this may go….perhaps a lab in Halifax? I was informed that the local government has all sorts of programs available to attract business. These are encouraging words…..especially since being a rural business in PEI I do not benefit from any real tangible development initiatives from this government.
