On September 26, Varitron hosted at its Saint-Hubert plant the Premier for the launch of Québec’s manufacturing initiative and of a province-wide tour aimed at persuading entrepreneurs to invest now in order to ensure their future competitiveness.
The Premier was accompanied by, among others, Dominique Anglade, Minister of the Economy, Science and Innovation; Lise Thériault, Minister Responsible for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises, Regulatory Streamlining and Regional Economic Development; and Pierre Gabriel Côté, President and CEO of Investissement Québec.
Throughout the news conference, which also brought together many partners, including Investissement Québec, Manufacturiers et Exportateurs du Québec and the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec, Varitron was cited as an example to be followed by all manufacturing companies in Québec.
Minister Anglade’s remarks concerning Varitron were highly laudatory:
“At the start of this venture in 1991, they were just six employees, and now they are more than 300, with plants in Saint-Hubert and Granby as well as in New Hampshire.
We need more companies like Varitron in Québec.”
We could hardly ask for a better testimonial, particularly in this special year marking our 25th anniversary!
At Varitron, we are most delighted by the announcement of this government initiative aimed at supporting the manufacturing sector and, above all, at promoting innovation among local companies.
Innovation is the heart of our success.
Over the last few years, we have invested heavily in our technological infrastructure and in training our people. This commitment enables us to provide world-class production times, quality levels and total acquisition costs while maintaining an agility worthy of the smallest electronics manufacturers.
