    Not all B.C. manufacturers taking advantage of low loonie, but some are making hay

    The Canadian dollar’s relative weakness to the U.S. greenback should have B.C. manufacturers in a stronger position than they currently are, according to the chairman of the B.C. Alliance for Manufacturing.

    Marcus Ewert-Johns said that while the manufacturing sector in B.C. is doing fairly well, it would be doing much better had it taken advantage of opportunities to trim costs, invest in operations and improve productivity when it had the chance.

    “The last time the Canadian dollar went low [the high 60-cent range to low 70-cent range], companies should have made capital investments — and most didn’t,” Ewert-Johns said.

    If they had improved their productivity, such companies would have been able to take advantage of the current climate, where the loonie is trading at below 80 cents US, he said.

    “Manufacturing in B.C. could be doing so much better if productivity was strengthened and a larger skilled labour force was available.”

    Currently, the Canadian dollar is trading at a price near 78.50 cents US. While the loonie has been rising against the greenback, this still puts B.C. manufacturers in an advantageous position.

    “If B.C’s guys are doing what they should be doing, when the Canadian dollar goes down, they do well,” Ewert-Johns said. “Most manufacturers are in a niche space, where they are doing something unique, and that means they have a global market as an opportunity so they are exporting.

    “If they are doing sales in U.S. dollars and their costs are Canadian, then it’s an advantage for them.”

    Victoria’s Sherwood Industries has been taking advantage of that opportunity for 28 years.

    The company, which manufactures pellet, wood and gas stoves and fireplaces, employs about 200 people at its 100,000-square-foot facility in the Keating industrial area in Saanichton.

    Sherwood is reporting a 23 per cent increase in sales, and has improved its bottom line as the vast majority of its sales are international and in American dollars. Fifty-eight per cent of all sales are in the U.S.

    Sherwood president Cherbel Yousief said the company has invested more than $4 million in recent years to improve its equipment and productivity.

    “We invested heavily and in the [economic] downturn. We slammed on the brakes and did some changes to the business model,” he said, noting those moves translated into a leaner company with more capital to invest. “We have never lagged behind other manufacturers. We invested heavily in automation. … We have always been on the cutting edge of productivity.”

    The result has been a company able to react quickly to changes in the marketplace, vice-president Stuart O’Connor said.

    “We have expanded our business and now we’re more efficient,” he said.

    O’Connor said they have focused heavily on expanding their gas business, which showed the greatest growth potential, and spent research-and-development money on new models to grab more of that market share.

    O’Connor said the company’s new production equipment also enables it to work on smaller batches — 18-20 units instead of hundreds at a time. That turns product out faster, cuts down on dead inventory and frees up cash.

    “Business models change and companies don’t want to have inventory lying around,” Yousief said.

    Victoria’s tech sector is also making short-term hay out of the relatively weak loonie.

    Scott Phillips, founder of Starfish Medical, which designs and develops medical devices for the global market, said its profitability is buoyed by the weak dollar.

    “But in the long term, if more talent drains to the U.S., it’s bad for the tech industry overall,” Phillips said. “So we wouldn’t welcome further weakening.”

    Phillips said the volatility of the Canadian dollar has made planning difficult.

    “For purposes of planning and investment, we are assuming an 80-cent dollar. But we have to build scenarios for other rates into our planning,” he said.

    Dan Gunn, chief executive of the Victoria Innovation, Advanced Technology and Entrepreneurship Council, said dealing with currency fluctuations is just part of being a Canadian company.

    “Our local tech sector is heavily export-focused, so they have had to learn how to manage their operations to mitigate and leverage currency swings as much as possible,” he said. “Sometimes it provides an advantage and sometimes it is a hindrance, depending on your company’s particular markets and business segments.

    “One thing is for sure,” Gunn said. “Our companies are much better prepared for these swings and much more savvy in the strategies to deal with them than they were a few decades ago.”

    Prestigious entrepreneur honour for Starfish Medical founder

    Starfish Medical might need to engineer a new mantelpiece for its Tennyson Place offices as the company landed a major award over the weekend when founder Scott Phillips was named the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year (Pacific) in the technology category. 

    The award, considered one of the world’s most prestigious business honours for entrepreneurs, comes on the heels of Phillips being named 2017 Technology Champion at this year’s Victoria Innovation, Advanced Technology and Entrepreneurship Council awards.

    “We’ve been fortunate to win a few things, and I say we because this is a team thing, but this award in particular is recognized around the world and we are an international company so this is very helpful,” said Phillips. “I’m really honoured, to be honest. I mean, it was a large category as ‘technology’ is pretty broad … I’m delighted to be chosen.”

    Phillips, who has received congratulations from clients and colleagues in 12 countries since the announcement, said the win is a validation for the decisions Starfish has made over the past several years.

    “When I frame what we are doing, it’s usually in the context of the medical [industry]. But when you go through the exercise and apply for these awards, it forces you to think in pure business terms,” he said. “It gives me a good feeling to be recognized in more than just the tech expertise that we bring, but also in our business achievements.”

    Starfish, which designs and develops medical devices, has had plenty of the achievements.

    The 18-year-old, private company has reported 50 per cent growth in each of the past two years. In March, it announced the acquisition of Toronto medical-device designer Kangaroo Group to attract more business from the medical-technology hubs of the eastern U.S.

    That expansion helped the company grow to 130 employees, with 25 in its office in Toronto.

    “Financially, it’s a good story. We have tripled the company in the last four years and become the only national firm in our industry,” Philips said.

    The acquisition of Kangaroo has paid off for Phillips, as the firm landed two new clients in Michigan whom he believes they would have missed without an eastern presence.

    “We are making good headway there. … I’m confident we will see some interesting development in places like Boston, New Jersey and New York that we wouldn’t have otherwise,” he said.

    Growth seems inevitable as Starfish plans to add to its sales force.

    “Every year we say to ourselves: ‘Let’s put the brakes on a little.’ Then we grow 30 per cent,” Phillips said with a laugh. “Maybe this is the year we stabilize a bit, but in this business, you kind of respond to demand.”

    The EY Entrepreneur of the Year program runs in about 145 cities in about 60 countries.

    Rob McCurdy, chief executive of Pinnacle Renewable Energy, was named the overall EY Entrepreneur of the Year for the Pacific region.

    As the Pacific region’s winner, McCurdy will compete with other winners from the Prairies, Ontario, Atlantic and Quebec regions for the national honour as Canada’s EY Entrepreneur of the Year. That winner will take on the world.

    Scott Phillips named EY Technology Entrepreneur of the Year

    Some entrepreneurs seem to come into the world predisposed to doing business. Take Scott Phillips, president and CEO of StarFish Medical; while the closest most preteens come to setting up shop is operating the odd lemonade stand, Phillips launched his own framing business at the age of 12, on the Ping-Pong table of his family’s Tsawwassen home.

    The precocious young Phillips managed to drum up some customers, and the cute little venture became an honest-to-God business that taught him important business skills. “I had to pay for everything myself, and do all my own invoicing and inventory management,” he says. “I actually did that all the way to the end of university.”

    After graduating in 1989 with a B.Sc. in engineering physics at UBC—“the nerdiest thing you can study”—Phillips was determined to find a way to build something bigger. After four years of work at a lithium-battery startup and a couple of years of international travel, he began taking on engineering contracts, eventually settling in Victoria with his wife. In 1999, he was awarded a contract to build an ultrasound imager for eyes. “It was the first big thing that I’d taken responsibility for on that scale,” Phillips recalls. “I built a team and had to move out of the spare bedroom of our little apartment and get some shared office space. I remember the first day that we built our first unit and turned it on—this amazing picture came up.”

    Phillips founded StarFish Medical that same year, with himself as the only staff member. It has since grown into Canada’s largest medical device designer and developer, with 130 employees and annual revenue that has tripled over the past four years, to $20 million. Its portfolio includes products ranging from a prosthetic heart-valve tester and a sleep-apnea treatment device to a mobile MRI machine that can move between surgical rooms. The biggest key to Phillips’s success? “Getting religion on systems,” he says. “In some ways our job is to put lightning in a bottle. We sell innovation. You can’t procedurize innovation, but there’s a lot you can procedurize around innovation to support it.”

    Technology sector honours local champion

    Amid the annual pandemonium that is the Victoria Innovation, Advanced Technology and Entrepreneurship Council’s award show — flying inflatable whales, palm trees, music, Polynesian dancers and a touch of time travel — Dan Gunn asked a good question.

    Why did VIATEC wait so long to name Scott Phillips as its technology champion?

    “He’s exactly what the Colin Lennox Award for Technology Champion is all about,” said the VIATEC chief executive.

    Phillips has worked over the last 18 years building Starfish Medical into a world leader in medical device manufacturing while helping to grow the Victoria tech sector by volunteering his time and sharing his expertise with start-up companies and his peers.

    On Friday night, he accepted the champion award in front of 813 rowdy, lei-wearing, Tiki-cocktail drinking tech workers.

    “I’m grateful. I really am to be seen as a founder and that what I do in the tech community is valued,” said Phillips in an interview. “I have caught this community-building disease from somewhere, and have been quietly working in the background to connect people and to support organizations like VIATEC.”

    At the same time, Phillips’ company has grown significantly.

    In March, Starfish announced it had acquired Toronto medical-device designer Kangaroo Group in order to attract more business from the medical-technology hubs of the eastern U.S. The acquisition took Starfish to 130 employees.

    Phillips, who joked Starfish is an 18-year-old overnight success story, said the projects they work on take several years to come to market, and even then it takes years to develop a good reputation and trust level with clients.

    “We are starting to see that now,” he said.

    On Friday, it was about the then-and-now as VIATEC’s annual awards show married steam-punk time travel with South Pacific flare for something it called Tiki Time Travel. With a massive coconut as part of a set and a Tiki time-machine car, the event provided irreverence and noise while celebrating the tech sector.

    “This is a great way for us to hold up examples of some of our leading companies so people can recognize them, which I think is important because it’s motivating for other companies to see what’s possible and motivating for teams that there is some level of recognition,” said Gunn.

    “It’s also come to represent the tech sector as it’s a somewhat edgy, largely irreverent event. We work hard on the entertainment and wow component.”

    This year that included Polynesian dancers, Atomic Vaudeville’s cast performing the Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show, an immersive video experience and time travel taking the entire room through the decades.

    “I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Scott Phillips for more than 15 years and I’ve seen his dedication to our tech community as a VIATEC board member, volunteer mentor, CEO round table chair and most importantly, as an example of how to join, lead and participate in building a strong tech community,” said Dan Gunn, CEO of VIATEC, or Victoria Innovation, Advanced Technology and Entrepreneurship Council.

    “Our tech community is stronger for having him among us and I think Colin Lennox would be proud to see Scott recognized in this manner.”
