Quebec Minister of Health and Social Services, Christian Dubé, visited Quebec-based AMD Medicom Inc., manufacturer of N95 respirators and procedure masks.
While touring the company’s Saint-Laurent plant, Dubé witnessed the acceleration of production of the SafeMask Architect Pro N95 respirator. As a result, more than 40 new full-time jobs will be created at the Saint-Laurent plant and new machinery will be installed to support the new production rate.
“Medicom will now supply nearly 3.3 million N95 respirators to the Quebec healthcare system, which is nearly twice the number provided for in our multi-year agreement with the government,” said Guillaume Laverdure, Chief Operating Officer, Medicom. “In a few weeks, once the new machines are running at full capacity, Medicom will supply the government with more than 4.4 million N95 respirators per month. This is clear evidence that the Quebec government’s local mask procurement strategy is working.”
