Camoplast Inaugurates its New Technical Centre


Camoplast Inc., announced the official opening of the new Camoplast Technical Centre (CTC). The new building, located in Quebec's Eastern Townships, is comprised of a research centre, laboratory and product testing facilities. It represents an investment of $9 million and will generate 35 new positions at the CTC, as well as 50 other positions elsewhere in the company.

The CTC aims at consolidating, under one roof, the entire research and development activities of Camoplast's Track Systems and Thermoplastic Groups. It was scheduled to begin its operations in November, with a team of about sixty employees, including 10 new hires, comprised mostly of engineers and technicians. This number should increase by 25 over the coming years, along with 50 other positions elsewhere in the company.

The municipality of Magog was selected following a call for proposals with many regions, initiated more than two years ago. "We opted for the town of Magog to carry out our CTC project because this region had sites to perform testing on our products, that it was central for our production operations and that it favours the rubber/plastic sector as primary axis of development" indicated Pierre Marcouiller, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Camoplast Inc. "Our customers will continue to benefit from the best equipment and product design tools in the industry, world class systems and processes and our unparalleled team of technical experts", he added.

Camoplast designs, develops and manufactures specialized components, sub-systems and assemblies for the world leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of both on- and off-road vehicles. The company also manufactures a full line of multi-terrain tracked vehicles for the utility, oil & gas, telecommunications, mining, alpine, municipal, and OEM markets, sold under the CAMO brand.
