Textile – A Cutting-Edge Industry!
The province of Québec is the center of the Canadian textile industry. The industry consists mostly of small and medium enterprises. Some companies have abandoned traditional markets and have been working together to make specialized products.
The people involved in the sector have realized that in order to progress the industry had to focus on technology, specialized high-endand value-added products.
Needless to say that to target those new markets and supply what they needed, the industry had to make many changes. Major investments were required to improve the productivity and dynamism of the industry, while increasing efficiency.
The textile companies mainly focused on developing niches or innovative products.
The future of textile in Québec resides in highly specialized, intelligent or value added textile. The local enterprises are betting on quality, versatility of their employees, fast production turn-around and innovation. We found more and more of these new types of textile and fabrics around us: in medicine, industry, sport, transport, and packaging.
Lac-Mégantic wishes to play an important role in the development of high-tech sectors. Since the textile industry is part of the Lac-Mégantic heritage, its specialized workforce is well positioned to take advantage of new opportunities in the high-tech textile industry.
