Automatech Robotik receives repayable contribution of $160,000 for the Saint-Apollinaire business to complete its project.
SAINT-APOLLINAIRE — Automatech Robotik creates robotic cells to support manufacturing businesses in the wood processing, metal products and foundry fields in their efforts to automate. Its solutions are based mostly on the loading and unloading of digitally controlled machines, and are designed with an industrial engineering approach bringing together a series of software programs to manage machines, movement recognition systems and robotic tooling.
With 50 employees, 30 of whom are engineers, the SME from the RCM of Lotbinière designs several formats of robotic cells based on client specifications and develops its own tooling and software.
Élisabeth Brière, Member of Parliament for Sherbrooke and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, and the Honourable Mélanie Joly, announced on Dec. 18, a repayable contribution of $160,000 for the Saint-Apollinaire business to complete its project.
The Government of Canada assistance will focus more specifically on equipment to design and manufacture two demonstration units for Automatech Robotik’s marketing partners, leading to the creation of two jobs.
“Helping businesses innovate and export so they can enhance their competitiveness and create good-quality jobs is at the heart of our priorities. That is why we are proud to support Automatech Robotik, which is not only proposing innovative solutions but is also keen to improve manufacturing businesses’ productivity. The Government of Canada is here to support workers and Quebec and Canadian SMEs in these difficult times; we are helping them equip themselves with what they need so that, together, we can rebuild a stronger, more resilient and more sustainable economy.” said Élisabeth Brière, Member of Parliament for Sherbrooke and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages.
