On May 25th, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Saint-Laurent – Mount-Royal, hosted its 33rd annual Alpha Gala. BlueMed had the honor of receiving the Alpha Award 2017 in the “Manufacturing” category.
The Alpha Contest recognizes the excellence and dynamism, as well as the know-how and the innovation of local enterprises that stand out in their industry.
Using its in-house developed technology, BlueMed manufactures its shoe covers locally in Quebec. Now entering its seventh year of existence, the enterprise is the sole manufacturer of shoe covers in Canada and has experienced uninterrupted growth in staff and revenue. The Alpha Award recognizes BlueMed's constant performance.
A word from Michel Kassar, the CEO of BlueMed, “Our team and I are extremely proud of this recognition! We invested in human capital and automation development to have an edge in our market. We are now capable of producing at equal or lower costs than Asian imports, while always maintaining the highest North-American standards of quality. Expertise, hard work, as well as innovative technologies bring us one step closer to the repatriation of the industry to Canada”.
