Quebec-based Anderson Group, a manufacturer of agricultural machinery, is receiving a repayable contribution of $825,000 from CED.  

The Anderson Group designs and manufactures agricultural machinery to facilitate hay handling and storage at milk and cattle farms.  The SME wishes to increase its productivity and production capacity with CED’s contribution. The funds will help the company acquire digital production equipment, including a laser cutter, a folding press and production software.

“Thank you to CED for your vision and ongoing support; this investment will contribute significantly to strengthening our position on the market and to stimulating economic growth in Chesterville and the surrounding area. We are committed to doing our best to maximize the positive impacts of this project, both locally and nationally. This collaboration between the private sector and the government clearly demonstrates that, when we work together, we are able to build a prosperous future for all,” said Patrice Desrochers, president and CEO of Anderson Group.

The announcement was made by the Honourable Marie‑Claude Bibeau, Minister of National Revenue, on behalf of the Honourable Soraya Martinez Ferrada, Minister of Tourism and Minister responsible for CED.

“Today’s announcement demonstrates once again our government’s commitment to Centre‑du‑Québec manufacturing businesses. By supporting the Anderson Group in its innovation projects, we are giving them the tools they need to acquire new technologies and optimize their machinery in order to increase their production capacity. With our government’s assistance, our manufacturers continue to stimulate the local economy, while also participating fully in Canada’s economic recovery,” said Minister Bibeau.
