Amecci, a family business specializing in the processing of abrasives into sanding products, has received $250,000 in financial assistance from Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) to acquire equipment that will improve its performance.

With CED’s support, the company is acquiring and installing manufacturing equipment that will enable the business to improve its productivity and production capacity to boost its growth.

“CED’s support makes an enormous difference for us. It enables us to make the investments needed to remain competitive in the face of the adversity our industry is facing globally. With this financial assistance, we will be able to double our production capacity and improve the daily reality of our employees, which will enable us to position ourselves as a major player in our market,” said Marie-Pier Lequin, general manager of Amecci.

Élisabeth Brière, Member of Parliament for Sherbrooke and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, on behalf of the Honourable Soraya Martinez Ferrada, Minister of Tourism and Minister responsible for CED, announced the repayable contribution of $250,000 for Amecci.


“Thanks to CED’s financial assistance, Amecci will be able to modernize its production line to meet demand, as well as compete, attain better production levels, and address the labour shortage. It will thus be able to pursue its growth, while also strengthening its position in the industry and on the markets, thereby helping to stimulate the regional economy. Congratulations to the entire Amecci team,” said Élisabeth Brière, Member of Parliament for Sherbrooke and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development.
