Tom Strifler, Executive Director of the Western-Sarnia-Lambton Research Park, spoke in council chambers recently for the organization's annual general meeting.
Financially, the Park is working down a debt of $20 million, and is poised to pay a $1.2-million chunk by year's end, he said. "It's great to make progress, but it's also very significant to get recognition," Strifler said, calling it, "Quite an achievement." Western is the first Ontario recipient and just the third in Canada. The award was accepted in late September in Oklahoma City. Meanwhile, the University Business Incubator index has the Park trio at fifth in North America, out of about 1,000 Strifler said. Strifler talked about the mandate of the Park - to attract innovators and help them turn ideas into business. BioAmber, which opened a $141-million bio-succinic acid plant in Sarnia last year, is one example of a Research Park "graduate," he said. More projects in the development stage could add up to $5 billion in investment into the community in the next several years, he said. "This list continues to grow and that's really the measure of our success as a research park," he said. Meanwhile, dropping energy costs, negotiating contracts and other steps have trimmed operational costs $800,000 a year, or 25 per cent, he reported. There are no immediate plans to expand, Strifler said this week.

"They were pretty excited," said Tom Strifler, Executive Director of the Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park.
While the Research Park has no immediate plans for an expansion, Strifler said Park officials would like to see a Board approved blueprint for expansion in place in case demand requires them to do so. "We both arrived at the conclusion that it was in our best interest to have a fulltime manager, and Tom (Strifler) came in with great private sector experience," Bradley said. Strifler has managed to lower both security and electricity costs to help the Park's books, Bradley noted. As much as it's important for the Research Park to be on solid footing, Strifler said it's really the work happening inside the Park that's important. "We're now essentially full, which is a good thing, but I think the more important thing is there's a lot of good research and entrepreneurial activity, which is what we're all about, so I think that's the real positive outcome of this," he said.
