Thunder Bay Community Economic Development Commission, ON

Explorer Solutions was retained to undertake a gap and supply chain analysis of Thunder Bay's manufacturing and exploration mining sectors. The objective was to identify the supplier names, locations, volumes and dollars spent on the top procured inputs, customer names and top products sold/exported by Thunder Bay manufacturers and exploration and mining companies. The data was developed into a series of targeted FDI opportunities for the Thunder Bay CEDC to pursue investment attraction further.

We also provided a series of industry profiles and business cases to support investment attraction. The gap and supply chain analysis provided rich information, insights and context to further augment the Thunder Bay value proposition for investment with a series of identified gaps that could be fulfilled by foreign direct investment.
