Electro-Kut, a manufacturer of complex components for the aerospace sector in Laval, Quebec, is receiving an $825,000 repayable investment from the Quebec government to add robotics, automation and digitization to its operations.

Founded in 1986, the business has developed expertise in the machining of cast and forged parts as well as in exotic alloy materials used in landing gear components.

According to the province, the SME, which has been facing a growing shortage of technical and specialized labour, is no longer able to meet its clientele’s requirements and take full opportunity of business opportunities.

To meet the growing global demand for specialized parts, Electro-Kut will use the funding to purchase equipment that will produce parts autonomously and continuously. Electro-Kut will be able to kick-start its growth in export markets and take advantage of market opportunities.
