Always concerned with improving productivity, Produits Gilbert has decided to carry out a project totalling an investment of $3,140,500 in order to improve the quality of work spaces, increase productivity by automating certain processes and reduce our environmental footprint.

While in Roberval, the Minister for the Economy, Ms. Lucie Lecours, announced yesterday financial assistance in the form of loans of $1,637,400 to the company from the Government of Québec and Investissement Québec. We are pleased to have the government's support for this project.

--------------- EXPO NEWS

SFPA Expo 2021 in Atlanta

Gilbert was thrilled to finally participate in a real live event and meet with many customers during the SFPA Expo in Atlanta.

Our sales team was very satisfied with the turn out and look forward to working on many new planermill upgrade projects in the southeastern territory.

Bringing our smaller size Gilbert S Series Planer to the show attracted many customers with new project ideas. The S Series Planer is ideal for mills that want to improve efficiency and grades, but don't necessarily need to run as fast as bigger operations.

Since Gilbert positioned this model on the market in 2014, over 40 S Series Planers have been sold and installed worldwide, many of them being in the southeastern USA territory.
We thank y'all for stopping by and talking to us.
