Over $1.8M in Government of Canada assistance for innovative projects by AMT Die Casting, Cotech/Xmetal and Technologie InovaWeld

LA POCATIÈRE, QC, Aug. 13, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED)

Steel and aluminum companies are major players in our economy and supply chains because they provide good jobs for thousands of middle-class Canadians.

Today, the Honourable Diane Lebouthillier, Member of Parliament for Gaspésie–Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine and Minister of National Revenue, announced the awarding of a total of $1,849,102 in non-repayable contributions to AMT Die Casting Inc., 9091-4532 Québec Inc. (Cotech/Xmetal) and Technologie InovaWeld Inc., three Bas-Saint-Laurent companies operating in the steel and aluminum sectors.

With $1,000,000 in financial support, AMT Die Casting Inc. will be able to acquire advanced technologies, including a new-generation casting cell, automated systems, protocols and high-performance interfaces for the use of these new technologies, in order to improve its production capacity. 

Cotech/Xmetal will receive $628,000 in financial assistance to optimize its production capacity and productivity through the acquisition of robotic cells for manufacturing mechanical excavation and wheel loader equipment, as well as specialized software.

Finally, with a financial contribution of $221,102, Technologie InovaWeld Inc. will be able to improve its productivity and optimize its production capacity by acquiring and installing a robotic cell for forming lids, as well as a packaging robot and an automated cutting system.

This funding is awarded under the Steel and Aluminum Initiative of the Regional Economic Growth through Innovation program, announced in March 2019.



Administered by the regional development agencies (RDAs), this initiative provides targeted support to Canada's small- and medium-sized enterprises in the steel and aluminum sectors. Non-repayable contributions will enable these SMEs to adopt innovative technologies for increasing their productivity or competitiveness and create highly skilled jobs.
