Steel Products Manufacturing Company Boosts Productivity, Reduces Energy Consumption
“Our government supports the hard-working steel and aluminum workers and companies that are important to regional economies across Canada. Our investments to support small and medium-sized producers and users of steel and aluminum will help these businesses innovate to drive productivity, scale up and expand into new markets to create good middle-class jobs.”
– The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for ACOA
“The small and medium-sized businesses in our steel and aluminum industries are important contributors to the economic vitality of communities across the country. Small and medium-sized businesses are the backbone of our economy, and by investing in their success, we are investing in the success of all Canadians.”
– The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion
“Atelier Gérard Beaulieu is a key employer, providing jobs to approximately 50 hard-working Canadians in Saint-Quentin. I am pleased that the Government of Canada, through ACOA is supporting Atelier Gérard Beaulieu as it expands its exports and creates new employment in this region.”
– René Arseneault, Member of Parliament for Madawaska-Restigouche
“ACOA's investment will enable AGB to acquire manufacturing automation tools. These tools will allow us to be much faster, thus reducing delivery times and significantly reducing manufacturing costs. With these, we will also maximize the use of raw materials, which means less waste and savings of time and money. We will therefore be more flexible and have less chance of error when cutting.”
– Marc Beaulieu, President, Atelier Gérard Beaulieu
Regional development agencies are one of Canada’s four flagship platforms supporting innovation, along with the Industrial Research Assistance Program, the Strategic Innovation Fund and the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service.
The Regional Economic Growth through Innovation program builds on the objectives of the Innovation and Skills Plan by providing regionally tailored, nationally consistent support for business productivity and scale-up and by helping enhance regional technology clusters and innovation ecosystems.
In 2018, Canada’s steel and aluminum industry employed more than 33,500 Canadians and contributed $8.9 billion to the value of goods produced and services provided in Canada.
