"Solaxis is one of many businesses leveraging the adoption of cutting-edge technologies to create more wealth and maintain quality jobs in Bromont. It is thanks to the success of such audacious, innovative businesses that we can ensure economic prosperity for the region and all of Quebec,” said Lyne Bessette, Member of Parliament for Brome—Missisquoi.
The company, which currently has eight industrial fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printers, including six Fortus 900mc, serves clients across Canada and the U.S. in the land transportation, aeronautics, defence and security sectors.
Solaxis is positioning itself to fill a void in the industry between very low volume prototyping and high-volume mass forming methods with tooling. Acquiring open, innovative 3D printing technologies will significantly increase its monthly production.
"In these unprecedented times of crisis, we are here to assist Canadian SMEs and workers as they adapt to an evolving situation. Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions supports businesses that leverage innovation as drivers of the economic recovery. By helping Solaxis, our aim is to work with a business that creates good regional jobs and enhances the competitiveness of our Canadian economy," said Mélanie Joly, Canada’s minister of economic development.
