The Gatineau business received $100,000 in financial assistance from CED.

GATINEAU — Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) provided a repayable contribution of $100,000 to Renostone to enable the Gatineau SME to increase its productivity and production capacity.

Renostone is a small business that manufactures a range of stones and bricks using lightweight concrete. These products are used in both new constructions and renovations. The business distributes its products mainly in western Quebec and Eastern Ontario through renovation centres and various other centres specializing in masonry and decoration.

CED’s contribution has enabled Renostone to acquire and install specialized equipment with digital programming (mixing system, materials doser, horizontal conveyor, and batch controller).

“The manufacturing industry is a pillar of our economy, which is why our government is committed to investing to ensure our SMEs remain competitive and innovative,” said Pascale St–Onge, Member of Parliament for Brome–Missisquoi, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED. “Thanks to CED’s support, Renostone will increase its capacity to produce decorative stones and bricks by purchasing automated equipment. The success and spin-offs of this project will boost economic vitality in Gatineau and across the broader Outaouais region. Congratulations!”
