You don’t see that every day.
In fact, you haven’t seen that at all because it was a first.
Last week the Bluewater Wood Alliance hosted the first BWA Virtual Plant Tour Focus Group at CCW Architectural Millwork Inc. in Waterloo, Ontario.
More than 30 members participated in the Zoom event that saw the presentation of a videotaped plant tour, which was followed by discussion and breakout rooms.
Credit to BWA here, because rather than offer up a stale video, this one delivered much of what one expects from a live plant tour.
CCW’s Shawn Kralik and Dan Valin offered an insightful look at their company and Ryan Tabone of BWA and Grant Nicholson of Upper Canada CNC Studio asked questions during the presentation.
“We were pleased to participate in the BWA’s first-time virtual plant tour,” said CCW Inc. President and CEO Ian Scanling.
“We appreciated hearing the members’ feedback during the discussion and look forward to connecting with members who can assist with some of our upcoming initiatives. Congratulations and thank you to Ryan and the team at BWA.”
CCW architectural millwork and casework is a collaboration of industry experts with more than 35 years of experience and operating since 1986.  
CCW has extensive experience in the hospitality, retail, corporate, institutional and residential markets and is considered a full service shop, providing custom millwork and casework, metal fabrication, glass and acrylic, solid surface, seating and upholstery and much more.
With a highly qualified team of CAD/engineers, project managers, estimators and of course a skilled production workforce, the company offer years of experience and dedication at every stage of the project.
CCW is committed to the highest level of customer satisfaction and their experience allows them to design, manufacture and deliver highly specialized work to their clients.
“We received lots of positive feedback after the event,” said Ryan Tabone, BWA program coordinator & advisor.
“We were flattered to hear some members comments that the video content was ‘excellent.’
“The interactive small group discussions proved to be a success enabling everyone an opportunity to share their insight and learn from one another. We are already planning the next tour and can’t wait to do this again.”

Proudly serving the industry since 1987
