DRILLS: CMAC-Thyssen to grow thanks to federal support

The funds were awarded through the Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions, or CED, and will pay for handling equipment, a paint room, a sandblasting chamber and compressors at the new site.

“The acquisition and installation of equipment in the new plant will help us improve our productivity and our production capacity, so that we will be even better equipped to serve our current clients and to diversify our service line in the region, elsewhere in Canada and around the world,” said Ghislain Blanchet, executive VP of the company’s mining group.

CMAC-Thyssen also supplies turnkey mine development services. Visit
