D'alarme Incendie Maple Armor Canada Inc., one of the first Chinese
companies to invest in manufacturing in Quebec, announces that it will
build a plant to manufacture fire alarm systems in Saint-Bruno, on

company, Weimin Cai, president of Maple Armor, Gelin Zhang,
vice-president of Maple Armor, Jacques Daoust, Minister of Economic
Development, Innovation and Exports, and Martin Murray, mayor of
Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, today officially launched construction of
the plant with a ground-breaking ceremony.
Zhendong Xu thanked Quebeckers for their warm welcome and the Quebec
government for its financial support of the project. "We wanted to set
up operations in North America to develop a new product line that meets
the highest industry standards. Considering the ease of access to new
markets and the presence of a highly qualified labour force, we are
pleased to pursue our growth here in Quebec with you," he added.
"Initially, production at the new Maple Armor plant will be destined for
the Chinese market, because of its strong demand for certified fire
alarm systems. We then intend to diversify our export markets,"
explained Gelin Zhang.
Mayor Murray said he was very pleased to welcome Maple Armor to
Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville. "This project brings important assets and
investments to our city. A leading manufacturer of fire prevention
equipment, this company is a major addition to Saint-Bruno's industrial
ecopark. In addition to creating jobs, it will contribute to raising
our city's profile."
Maple Armor plans to have its plant operational by the end of 2015.
