SAINT-AMBROISE — On May 4, Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED, announced a repayable contribution of $200,000 for Les Ateliers de fabrication du Saguenay. This CED support will enable the business to increase both its productivity and production capacity.
Les Ateliers de fabrication du Saguenay specialize in designing and manufacturing steel and aluminum products for the agriculture, railway, and industrial sectors. The manufacturing business reportedly excels in the production of agricultural equipment for conditioning and packaging garden produce. The project supported by CED involves acquiring a state-of-the-art digital-command plasma cutting table and peripheral production equipment such as a horizontal folding machine and a milling machine.
“SMEs are at the core of innovation and economic growth in our communities and supporting them is a priority in our government’s economic recovery plan. We are helping them grow by bolstering their efforts to make the digital shift. I am therefore delighted that our government is supporting Les Ateliers de fabrication du Saguenay’s project aimed at acquiring state-of-the-art machinery. This contribution will surely enable the business to enhance its performance and give a major boost to Saint‑Ambroise’s economic vitality. Without a doubt, our entire economy will benefit from the success and spinoffs of its project.” said Pascale St-Onge, MP for Brome–Missisquoi, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED.
