MONT-LAURIER — On Apr. 21, Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED, announced a repayable contribution of $500,000 for Maison et roulotte Usitech inc. This CED support will enable the business to develop and increase its production capacity by expanding its building and acquiring production equipment.

Usitech specializes in manufacturing construction trailers and prefabricated housing units. Through this project, the manufacturing business will experience rapid growth in sales and enable the creation of six jobs.

“SMEs are at the core of our economy and our communities and are part of our government’s economic recovery plan. Supporting our small businesses to help them grow is a priority for us. That is why I am delighted with our government’s assistance for Maison et roulette Usitech’s project, which will contribute to Mont‑Laurier’s economic vitality. Without a doubt, the success and spinoffs generated by its project to expand and acquire new production equipment will be felt across Quebec and Canada.” said Pascale St-Onge, MP for Brome–Missisquoi, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED.

“Without CED’s support, our plans would undoubtedly have been delayed. This contribution has enabled the project to quickly take off and allowed us to purchase equipment and improve our processes. CED has been able to meet our needs in real time. I will always be grateful for the support our wonderful business has received.” said Stéphanie Légaré, Co-owner, Maison et roulotte Usitech inc.
