Mécanium

Center for Research and Innovation in Industrial Mechanics

Cégep de Beauce-Appalaches

Mécanium's mission is to support Québec's manufacturing SMEs by designing and manufacturing mechatronic solutions to increase companies’ knowledge, productivity, competitiveness and the quality of their products and processes. It also contributes to training in its community through the transfer of knowledge.

MECANIUM specializes in creating new production processes and equipment where there are no complete or available solutions on the market.

The MECANIUM team brilliantly implements turnkey, complex and unique projects that are not only new, but involve high technological or financial risks.

The projects you entrust to MECANIUM are entirely yours as the intellectual property rights are transferred to the company, making your projects confidential.
