Technyx opens a new detailing office in China



    BOUCHERVILLE, QC, Nov. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - Technyx, a Canam Group Inc.
(TSX: CAM) business unit that markets outsourcing services in the engineering
and industrial drafting sector, today announced the opening of a new business
location in Guangzhou, China. This new detailing office brings the total
number of Technyx business locations to five, with the four others located in
Brasov (Romania), Kolkata (India), Boucherville and St. Georges (Canada).
    "The office in China currently employs six structural steel detailers and
should gradually increase to around 25 employees within two years," indicated
Jean Thibodeau, president of Technyx. "The detailers at the Guangzhou office
will collaborate with existing detailing teams on small-scale projects," he
added.
    "By opening an office in China, we are pursuing our natural expansion
towards the East," continued Mr. Thibodeau. "This will allow us to offer a
third shift to the majority of our clients, which is a valuable asset in
advancing construction projects given the skilled labor shortage across North
America."
    Technyx currently employs over 400 detailers. The company generates
approximately 40% of its revenue from external clients and also serves the
needs of an internal clientele composed of other Canam Group business units.
This business relationship allows Canam Group to maintain privileged access to
a qualified workforce as well as stay competitive and flexible throughout the
various cycles of the construction industry.

    Canam Group is an industrial company operating 12 plants specialized in
the design and fabrication of construction products and solutions. The company
employs more than 3,000 people in Canada, the United States, Romania and
India, and has partnerships with companies in Mexico, France, Saudi Arabia,
the United Arab Emirates, Russia and China.
