North Bay is a hub for engineering and mining companies which support mining communities in Ontario such as Sudbury, Kirkland Lake, Timmins and in Quebec such as Rouyn-Noranda and Val-d’Or. Located at the juncture between Hwy 11 and Hwy 17, North Bay is well situated to supply goods and services into northern communities while still being relatively close to the Toronto supply base. JVC Precision regularly has shipments going to manufacturers located in the North Bay area.
