MONTREAL — Quebec-based AMD Medicom Inc., a manufacturer of procedure and respiratory masks, received the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Entrepreneurship – Large Company – Award at the 2021 Mercuriades Gala. The company’s performance throughout the COVID-19 pandemic were highlighted by the jury.

The Mercuriades competition is a business competition in Quebec. Each year, it aims to celebrates the innovation, ambition, entrepreneurship and performance of Quebec companies.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized in our home province and we thank the jury for this award. As COVID-19 was gaining momentum in China in January 2020, we came to a crossroads where we had to decide whether to maintain the status quo or reinvent ourselves. We chose to reinvent ourselves by pivoting to high-quality N95 and procedure masks, building strong relationships with several governments around the world and building five new factories on three continents, including one in Montreal. This strategic decision was not only beneficial for Medicom, but also for local communities that can now count on a secure supply of high-quality personal protective equipment,” said Guillaume Laverdure, Chief Operating Officer of Medicom.

In the midst of the pandemic, Medicom hired more than 600 employees, growing its team of over 2,000.

Medicom’s growth will continue in the years ahead and we will be more prepared than ever to support our clients and governments,” concluded John Tourlas, President North America, Medicom.

The Medicom team also congratulated all 2021 Mercuriades winners and finalists.
