GATINEAU — On May 9, Greg Fergus, MP for Hull–Aylmer and Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister and to the President of the Treasury Board, announced a repayable contribution of $267,000 for Boulons Éclair. This CED support will enable the business to increase its manufacturing capacity.

Boulons Éclair specializes in the custom manufacture of bolts and anchors. To be more autonomous, have more control over costs, provide better-quality products, and improve delivery timeframes, the Gatineau business will be able to acquire and install production equipment and thus become less dependent on outside suppliers. This project will support economic diversification in Gatineau and strengthen the entrepreneurial and industrial fabric of the region.

“Today’s announcement is proof once again of the Government of Canada’s commitment to Gatineau’s manufacturing businesses, which are part of our economic recovery plan. By helping them pursue their activities and by stimulating their growth, the government is working to ensure Quebec’s manufacturing industry plays a major role in Canada’s economic recovery.” said Greg Fergus, Member of Parliament for Hull–Aylmer and Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister and to the President of the Treasury Board.

“It is SMEs that foster economic development and diversification in communities. That is why we are helping them grow strategically, so we can build a stronger, more resilient economy. I am therefore delighted with our government’s support for Boulons Éclair’s project. The success and spin-offs generated by its project to increase its production capacity will contribute to the region’s economic vitality. All my congratulations to the Boulons Éclair team!” said Pascale St-Onge, Member of Parliament for Brome–Missisquoi, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED.
