Quotes

"By helping Comaintel with equipment acquisition and market development, our government is showing once again that it is committed to stimulating economic growth."

Denis Lebel, Minister of Infrastructure, Communities and Intergovernmental Affairs and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec

"It is public knowledge that the lower demand for paper in North America and Europe has triggered a major decrease in its production. Our systems, long used by paper manufacturers, have therefore been adapted for the processing of other materials like aluminium and steel. The funding from Canada Economic Development will allow us to pursue our strategy to develop new industrial markets, particularly in Europe, Asia and the United States."

René Larivé, President, Comaintel
