LEHC had a couple of representatives attend and there as so much value to take from the expertise, knowledge, experience and stories that were shared today. Mayor Ed Holder introduced two representatives from Maple Leaf Foods, which has started pouring the concrete in building an upcoming, leading edge production plant in London Canada. Years of planning and thought have resulted in bringing Industry 4.0 to London Ontario.
