Medicom announces the construction of a new plant in Québec

Innoparc Albatros on the North Shore of Montréal will soon be home to Meltech Innovation manufacturing.


Meltech Innovation, new division of Medicom Group Inc., will be dedicated to the production and innovation of materials used to develop surgical and pediatric masks and N95 respirators. This venture will also increase Canada’s and Quebec’s resilience to future pandemics and will ensure that front-line health care workers continue to have a reliable local supply of personal protective equipment.

“The pandemic has reminded us that we need easy access to specialized equipment in times of crisis. That is why we’re excited to work with this growing company offering cutting edge and customized solutions that can respond locally and quickly to our personal protective equipment demands.” Patrice Paquette, Councillor and Economic Development Commission Chair

The company has reached an agreement with the City of Saint-Eustache for the sale of three lots located at allée du Golf, representing nearly 18,500 m2, in the Innoparc Albatros business district. Meltech Innovation will invest roughly $40 million in this major project, which will create close to 30 jobs.

“Medicom pushes its expansion in Canada and we’re very pleased that our next destination is in Saint-Eustache. The Meltech Innovation facility we’re building is distinct from others as it will produce the filtering materials needed for N95 surgical and respiratory masks. Also, this new facility will include an innovative R&D centre that will develop greener and more efficient technology for a sustainable future. The municipality's economic dynamism and the unique assets of Innoparc Albatros quickly convinced us that Saint-Eustache is where we wanted to continue our growth,” said the Chief Operating Officer of Medicom, Mr. Guillaume Laverdure.

Medicom's new plant will be built in harmony with its environment. Production will be powered by hydroelectricity and a waste reduction plan will be implemented. In addition, Medicom is committed to reforesting the site by planting more than 40 trees and creating a pollination garden for bees and butterflies.

To provide a more pleasant work space for employees, the new facility will also have bike racks, electric vehicle charging stations, a workout area, showers and a meditation room.

Finally, the Government of Canada announced it’s financially supporting this highly strategic project for the resilience of the local supply chain through the Strategic Innovation Fund.
