Business New Brunswick
The ability to strategically showcase the benefits of New Brunswick's specialty-wood-products companies will become easier, due to the opening of the Artizan Design Centre in Lawrence, Mass. Touted as the gateway for new business opportunities, the centre's official opening was celebrated recently by more than 100 guests, including Business New Brunswick Minister Kirk MacDonald, representatives from the specialty-wood sector, and dignitaries from the state of Massachusetts.
