In the summer of 2020, Medicom announced the opening of a surgical mask and N95 respirator plant in Montreal, followed by a second plant to produce the filtering material for masks in the Greater Montreal area.
POINTE-CLAIRE — Canada-based AMD Medicom Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of personal protective equipment (PPE), has been recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with a Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation for a second consecutive year. This award recognizes Canadian companies with revenues over $50 million that demonstrate strong performance.
“It is a real honour for Medicom to be selected once again as one of the Best Managed Companies this year. It’s an indisputable testament to the outstanding work of our employees, especially during the two-year pandemic. I would like to thank all our engaged employees as they made this possible,” said John Tourlas, President, North America, Medicom.
In recent months, Medicom has reportedly redoubled its efforts to push its vertical integration and relocate strategic PPE production to Canada. In the summer of 2020, Medicom announced the opening of a surgical mask and N95 respirator plant in Montreal, followed by a second plant to produce the filtering material for masks in the Greater Montreal area and, a few weeks ago, the opening of a new nitrile glove plant in Ontario to supply mainly governments.
“Our commitment to protect has never been clearer. We are investing tens of millions of dollars locally in Canada to secure our local production and thus our caregivers and their patients who need personal protective equipment every day. They can always count on our expertise and rigor when it comes to infection prevention and control,” commented Guillaume Laverdure, COO, Medicom.
