INNOVATON, right from the start.
CONCEPTROMEC’s defining feature since 1988 has been innovation in every respect: market development strategies, internal production processes, developing and designing state-of-the-art equipment, and a customer-based approach. The company has positioned itself as an integrator, rather than just an equipment manufacturer.
Our goal at CONCEPTROMEC is to make the customer a partner who benefits from our international knowledge in this line of business and our recognized expertise in equipment manufacturing, amassed over more than 25 years of research and development.
After years of providing integrated and sophisticated production systems to Quebec and Ontario businesses operating in various sectors, a strategic decision led CONCEPTROMEC, in 1999, to specialize in “niche” manufacturing of equipment for the automotive sealing sector. This sound positioning garnered CONCEPTROMEC a ranking among the world’s most competitive companies in this sector, within a few years. Our customers, based in Quebec, Ontario, the U.S., Mexico, Brazil, Europe and Asia, recognize the quality and reliability of our equipment, as well as our unparalleled customer service.
In 2009, CONCEPTROMEC diversified its activities so we could adjust our strategy in step with major economic developments worldwide. Backed by its employees’ versatility and know-how, CONCEPTROMEC offers Quebec manufacturers a range of modern, adapted automated production solutions. This strategy is deployed alongside its main activities: the design and manufacture of equipment for the automotive sector. Partnerships have been established in Brazil, Germany, South Korea and Italy, and we now operate a plant in Guadalajara, Mexico, to meet growing international demand.
