The Réseau de la métallurgie du Québec (Quebec metallurgy network): a lever enabling its members to stand out on national and international markets
A non-profit organization (NPO), the Réseau de la métallurgie du Québec (RMQ) groups together businesses offering a strategic watchdog service, along with other services, to all Quebec businesses who choose to become members.
Services offered can include, to name only these, information on new legislation, enabling businesses to achieve rapid compliance; information on anything related to the work environments of its members, - their customers suppliers and competitors -, review of newspapers on selected topics; accurate research on market developments; and information on new technologies.

The ACCORD Program
Created by the Quebec government, the ACCORD program (united action for cooperative regional development) targets increased business competitiveness at the North American and global level in each Quebec region, by means of identifying and developing market niches of excellence.
A niche leader in primary metal processing and the processing of associated new materials, the Montérégie region benefits from a large and strong industrial base at the level not only of primary metal processing but also of industrial metallic manufacturing, enabling it to advantageously position businesses of the region in these markets and sectors. As well, several major players are established in the Sorel-Tracy region and manufacture a varied range of products.
The niche objective is also to increase metal product processing with a view to consolidating the iron and steel production sector, to develop new powder metallurgy products and associated material products, and to stimulate growth by promoting technological innovation.
With leading-edge expertise in industrial ecology and sustainable development, the region thus focuses on four areas of development:
Innovative regional projects that are accepted could well qualify for financing to be carried out, as based on an agreement with the provincial government.
