Québec City, September 21, 2020 – Québec International and Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton are pleased to consolidate their efforts to support regional companies in initiating their digital transformation. Between September 24 and October 29, 2020, business leaders and entrepreneurs are invited to take part in the Manufacturier numériQC initiative, a series of six virtual conferences dedicated to innovation and technology.
To face the challenges of the years to come and seize business opportunities, Québec International and Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton are working together to support small and medium-sized manufacturing companies in their digital and technological transition. According to Carl Viel, President and CEO of Québec International: “Digital transformation is increasingly unfolding in the industrial landscape. Business growth includes Industry 4.0, which is an essential element in ensuring the economic prosperity of the region and of Quebec.”
Organized with the Investissement Québec competition, Manufacturier numériQC invites small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to succeed in their digital transformation and carry out their projects in order to remain productive and competitive. With the presentation of feasible and effective digitization and optimization models tailored to the reality of manufacturing in Quebec, the program is centered around the experience of local companies and dialogue and on the following six conferences:
- September 24, 2020 | Produits Exact and Festo Didactic

- October 8, 2020 | Labplas and Preverco

Start your digital transformation off right with the 4.0 audit
“In a new business context that requires more agility and innovation from manufacturing companies supporting economic prosperity, the digital and technological transformation is an essential engine for business recovery, as well as sustainability. Catching up is no longer an option. Businesses must invest in a sustained manner to ensure continued increases in efficiency and income, fill labour shortages, and take on the challenge of global competitiveness.” notes Nancy Jalbert, CPA, CA, Management Consulting Partner and Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’ leader of the Industry 4.0 practice. “Companies must take on the 4.0 challenge, and this shift requires preparation. The Industry 4.0 audit remains one of the structuring elements to start a real digital shift and is possible through a grant offered by Investissement Québec whereby experts from our firm are accredited to support businesses.” adds Jalbert.
Informative and structuring meetings for a successful digital transformation
Business leaders and entrepreneurs are invited to attend these conferences where they will learn how to improve their production. Managers will be able to experience the full potential of digital solutions for their manufacturing company and discover how a digital transformation is a promising investment for businesses.
