The federal government is making a $475,944 investment in Saguenay’s Réseau Trans–Al.
The government support is aimed at helping the organization boost innovation and growth among businesses in Quebec’s aluminum sector with a focus on sustainable development.
Réseau Trans-Al, an organization that brings together manufacturing businesses in the aluminum industry, works in collaboration with sector stakeholders to help its members make advancements on technical, technological, and business matters. Its activities include the transfer of technical knowledge, the dissemination of information on technologies and digital tools, as well as referencing, business networking, and the exchange of expertise and experience.
The contribution will enable Réseau Trans–Al to support the growth of SMEs in the aluminum industry by helping them accelerate their digital transition and adopt manufacturing technologies through, among other things, the TIC Consortium (information and communications technologies).
“The financial support enables Trans–Al to act directly with SMEs to both intensify the technological and digital reality of businesses and increase their productivity. Quebec’s aluminum processing industry and equipment manufacturers have made the choice to invest in innovation and technology to remain competitive on the global stage and, more recently, to begin to make their production carbon neutral. Over the next three years, Trans–Al plans to actively participate in these efforts towards sustainable growth in the industry,” said Yohan Tremblay, President, Réseau Trans–Al.
