Share this story

Registration is now open for the rescheduled Woodworking Machinery & Supply Conference & Expo (WMS) to be held Feb. 24-26 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont.
"Thankfully the pandemic continues to recede in Ontario and Canada in general. We know that the Canadian woodworking industry is eager for a face-to-face event," said Harry Urban, WMS show manager.
The Ontario government eased restrictions on capacity limits for many indoor settings including convention facilities. Effective Sept. 25, the government began allowing gatherings of to up to 50 percent capacity or 10,000 people (whichever is less) for indoor events.
WMS will again showcase a full slate of products and services required by custom or production woodworking operations. This includes woodworking machinery, cutting tools, software, cabinet hardware, decorative panels, finishes, and much more. Many of these products will be making their first public showing in Canada.
The three-day event will also feature more than a dozen complimentary educational presentations covering a wide variety of technical and business topics at the WMS Live stage right on the show floor.
Luke Elias, president and CEO of Muskoka Cabinet Co., will present the opening keynote session at 11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 24. Elias will discuss how his company has made strategic investments in robots and other automated equipment to produce more products with less labour. Muskoka has also been an industry trendsetter in its use of ERP, MES, and RFID technologies.
The Wood Manufacturing Cluster of Ontario is helping to organize more than a half-dozen WMS Live presentations. Topics include Pandemic Supply Chain Challenges Panel Discussion; Lean Manufacturing Strategies; and Developing Leaders in Your Organization.
