CAMPBELL’S BAY – Pontiac MNA Andre Fortin, on behalf of Jacques Daoust, Minister of the Economy, Innovation and Exports, announced on December 17 that a $23,000 grant would be given to Cuisines Pilon Kitchens in support of an investment project estimated at over $78,000.  The business is owned by Gerard Pilon and Tim Shea.
Pilon Kitchens, a
company specializing in the fabrication and
marketing of kitchen and bathroom cabinets and countertops, will use the funds to purchase an edge-banding machine; this will allow the business to improve the finish of its products and manufacture their own doors rather than relying on another company to do so. With this advanced technology, the company stands to increase its competitiveness by producing, among other items, European-style kitchen cabinet
doors in high demand
on the North American
market.
Although many companies elect to use an
iron-on polyester finish on the edges of cabinet
doors, the edge-binding machine provides a
higher-quality finish that will allow Pilon Kitchens to compete against
higher-end companies.
“Entrepreneurship is the future of the economy of our region, and given the need to help stimulate the initiatives of our
businesses and showcase Quebec’s processing industry, we support this project which will create two new jobs at the heart of the Pontiac,” said Fortin in a press release.
