Microelectronics and the Scientific Park of Bromont
It was here that were created the camera for the Spirit probe which treaded the soil of planet Mars, and the supercomputer WATSON that caused a sensation on the Jeopardy TV show. Here are also produced the computer chips for game consoles, phones and cars. Both established in Bromont, IBM and Teledyne Dalsa represent a formidable force in the field of nanotechnology and semiconductors. Alone, these companies employ more than 3 000 qualified workers. The sector of microelectronics can also count on the support of C2MI, an important research center run by the Université de Sherbrooke.
Plastics in Cowansville, East Farnham and Farnham
Rotoplast, Kaytec, Polyplus : businesses that restore the glory of plastics. Biodegradable bags are fabricated, recycling is done and new revolutionary processes are developed. The enterprise Polyplus and Les Plastiques Moulin Inc. are also blooming companies in this sector.
Limestone Mining in Bedford and around
Graymont (3rd biggest producer of lime in North America) and Omya (international producer) extract from the rich soils of Brome-Missisquoi a very high-quality limestone. They subsequently transform it into different products such as lime, calcium carbonate and building stones. These refined products are notably used in the mining industry, for water treatment and as input for different products, including toothpaste, latex paint, agricultural fertilizers, concrete, asphalt and paper.
Agri-food : a Thriving and Innovative Niche
From Brome Lake Ducks (famous for their duck ‘foie gras’) to Domaine Pinnacle (renowned for their ice cider, as far as in China), our agrifood industry distinguishes itself everywhere. It spans from “artisanal” processing enterprises (cheese makers, restaurateurs, prestigious caterers), to industrial processors (Bonduelle, Artic Gardens) and 17 vineyards that make Brome-Missisquoi the cradle of viticulture in Quebec.
