Deadline Looming for Industrial Revolutionaries

ST. THOMAS, ON, April 22 /CNW/ - The April 30th deadline for Phase One applications for the unique opportunity provided by the St. Thomas Industrial Revolutionaries (STIR) Challenge is approaching quickly.

The STIR Challenge offers manufacturing companies a unique opportunity to find a home; providing up to 10,000 square feet of factory space and services worth almost $70,000 from local companies to become the latest member of St. Thomas' Industrial Revolution as we work to become the greatest manufacturing community in North America.

"We've had interest from as far away as Russia and Ireland", said Brian Dempsey, President of the STIR Board, an organization comprised of private business leaders and members of the community. "And we've been very impressed with the quality and diversity of the applications."

After the deadline, Phase 2 of the Challenge begins as the STIR panel moves into evaluation mode with the lucky winner to be announced on June 30th, 2011.
