The Federation of Plastics and Alliances Composites (FEPAC) has received a $130,456 federal government grant to help member companies in Quebec streamline operations.

The grant comes from Canada Economic Development’s Business and Regional Growth program, and will be used for Quebec-based FEPAC’s IMAC Plastics-Composites initiative, aimed at helping small-and medium-sized enterprises transition to enhanced performance and sustained growth.

Some 40 firms will participate in this program, which consists of four phases: preparation, pilot, validation and deployment. “In practical terms, FEPAC guides its member firms in their undertakings and helps them redefine their business plans and commercialization strategies,” said Pierre Fillion, FEPAC’s president and CEO. “This will inevitably influence their choices in terms of investments, technologies and training activities and make them aware of the value of placing greater importance on research and development.”
