[rt_reading_time] MIN READ
MineConnect, the Sudbury-based organization that represents the mining supply and service sector, is looking to expand its membership in Northern Ontario and expand its marketing beyond the North thanks to the creation of a new website, www.samssa.ca which was created with financial support from FedNor.
It was a key topic at the annual general meeting of the Sudbury Area Mining Supply and Service Association where new president Ricky Lemieux said MineConnect was launching a campaign in the new year to boost marketing and membership, not only in the North, but around the world.
“Our new website will form the cornerstone of the campaign where we will promote it as the most innovative mining cluster in the world. We are committed to building a united voice in Northern Ontario and using that voice to advocate and draw attention to the fact that our mining and service sector is responsible for being a major economic driver in the province,” said Lemieux.
Paul Bradette, the business development director for MineConnect, told the meeting that the new web presence will provide a one-stop shopping tool for domestic mining companies as well as for global companies seeking to source their mining supplies and services in Canada.
The website describes MineConnect as “the trusted voice of mining supply and services.”
He said the idea was to create a website where the end-user can navigate more easily. One of the features of the website is that while it searches out and describes the role of various mine suppliers and service providers, it also connects the user with the individual website on each business.
“As we move forward this is going to be the key piece of what we’re trying to do,” said Bradette.
