Manufacturer will use CED invesment to buy new equipment, expand product portfolio
SAINT-ALPHONSE-DE-GRANBY, Que.—The government of Canada is investing $135,000 in Montreal-area industrial brush manufacturer, Brosses Lacasse.
The St-Alphonse, Que.-based company will use the funds, which will be made available through the Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED), to buy new equipment for manufacturing disc brushes, roller brushes and strip brushes.
“The financial assistance from CED enabled our company to acquire some leading-edge equipment that will enable us to not only increase our production capacity, but also manufacture some new products, thereby contributing to the community’s economic vitality,” Steve Bernier, the company’s president said.
Along with more general purpose work, Brosses Lacasse makes custom-made brushed for companies in a range of sectors, including those in the agri-food, maple growing, railway, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.
