Many of the companies profiled in our report have turned to in-house knowledge and development to gain competitive advantage in the global arena. They rely on technological advantage, but not technology that any other competitor can buy. It is home-grown technology, ripe to be exploited and exported.

Consider DBM Reflex, a world leader in electroforms for taillight molds; Groupe Lavergne producing high-quality recycled resin and sheet; Rehau applying research from Japan and Germany to multi-material extrusions; and IPL still growing strong with ideas pouring from a talented design team.

These are examples of the self-reliant, knowledge-based plastics companies in Quebec. Watch for Quebec’s entrepreneurs to increase their business with both North America and Europe.
