 Market access and a reliable labour force spell continued success for Moduline Industries in Medicine Hat.

For factory homebuilder Moduline Industries, Medicine Hat is a strategically important business location.

The company, which has been operating in Medicine Hat since 1995, cites a good labour pool and easy market access as reasons for their continued success.

“From Medicine Hat, we are able to service all three prairie provinces,” explains Daryn Schlamp, Moduline Industries’ general manager.

Medicine Hat’s location at the junction of the Crowsnest and Trans-Canada highways means homes built in Medicine Hat are delivered efficiently along Canada’s primary arteries. Nearby Highway 41 provides north-south access as well.

Equally important, Medicine Hat’s cost of living is lower than the Western Canadian average, which translates into a higher quality of life for area employees.

“There is a reliable pool of highly skilled trades people in Medicine Hat,” says Schlamp. “We’re able to find skilled trades and labourers with manufacturing experience.”

According to Ryan Jackson, general manager for Invest Medicine Hat, local labour force and location are two of Medicine Hat’s most important advantages.

“Few cities in Western Canada can match Medicine Hat’s quality of life, low business costs and market access,” says Jackson.

“Combine that with a highly skilled labour force that’s ready to work and Medicine Hat is an excellent location for business owners looking to reach growing markets in Western Canada.”
