Three Quebec Manufacturers Get Government Grants

Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) is providing $752,900 in grants to three Quebec manufacturing businesses. It says the manufacturing industry will play a major role in the economic recovery so it is supporting them to be resilient to overcome the challenges caused by COVID-19. The recipients of this repayable support are Les Manufacturiers d'aluminium Ottawa Inc., D.V. Hardwoods Inc., and Insulfloor Inc. Les Manufacturiers d'aluminium Ottawa will use the grant for the purchase and installation of production equipment (including a roll forming line with unwinder that will be used to create a new exterior coating imitating the grain and real colours of wood, as well as a packing table). D.V. Hardwoods Inc. will use its grant to purchase an integrated management system for a drying unit, leasehold improvements, and the acquisition of handling equipment, all to foster better synergy among the various businesses associated with the group. Insulfloor plans to purchase automated production equipment (a panel feeder, rotation system, palletizer, scorer, nailer, and PVC cutter).
