DESTL & BRIDGR partner to bridge the gap in Advanced Manufacturing
BRIDGR is proud to announce its partnership with Développement Economique Saint-Laurent (DESTL) to support innovative manufacturers in their digital transformation efforts.
BRIDGR will be offering its services to manufacturing SMEs in Saint-Laurent, Quebec, who will benefit from a support platform that will put them in contact with qualified experts or validated technology providers. We are proud to be involved in this initiative, which aims to stimulate the understanding as well as the appropriation and development of the industry 4.0 standards in Saint Laurent.
“Saint-Laurent’s economic vitality is based on its industrial strength. It is essential to support the growth of manufacturing SMEs, especially the most innovative of them“, says Luc Duguay, Acting General Director of DESTL.
We designed and built a unique project management platform and a dashboard for analyzing specific data, tailored to manufacturing companies and organizations that support them.
“The digitization of Quebec manufacturing companies is a very important step for the future of the industry. It is necessary to propose the tools adapted to each actor of this transformation, to the economic development organizations as to the manufacturers “, explains Amira Boutouchent, co-founder and general manager of BRIDGR.
This agreement provides a preferential rate for the 10 first manufacturers who will take part in this pilot project. The agreement is for two years.
DESTL supports the projects of establishment, retention, and growth of companies. The 4,650 companies generate nearly 109,000 jobs and make Saint-Laurent one of Québec’s main economic engines. In order to promote efficient economic development, DESTL offers an integrated approach that includes several areas of expertise: export, real estate, sustainable development, alternative transportation, and innovation.
