Rainey Media is currently producing a video to promote tourism and economic development in Haldimand County. We opened our doors to the project and welcomed Rainey to shoot a series of videos within our facility. Battlefield International was recommended as the business best suited to demonstrate Haldimand's own leading edge aerospace design and development. These short professional video segments allow a rare "sneak peek" inside our high tech company where advanced Aerospace design, technology, and manufacturing happen on a day to day basis. We want to thank Rainey Media and Haldimand County for this opportunity and are very pleased to be located and thriving within the best county in Canada.
