Following the recent announcement by the Quebec Premier to close non-essential industries and services until April 13, Pyrowave has implemented some compliance measures. Our prime concern is to ensure the health of our employees and to work with our partners and suppliers to respond to the situation. Therefore, the Company will maintain the operations that can be carried out remotely, and the pilot plant, which is also housing the laboratory, is temporarily closed until containment measures are lifted in accordance with government guidelines.

Temporary Closure of the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield Pilot Plant and Laboratory

Although several operations will continue remotely in telework mode, the pilot plant is temporarily closed. Health and safety measures were quickly implemented, including weekly inspection visits and continuous camera surveillance of our premises.
Deliveries to the pilot plant: Please stop all deliveries to the pilot plant.

For any urgent situation in connection with the pilot plant or deliveries, please contact Mr. Jean-Philippe Laviolette, Vice-President, Innovation:

Remote Business Continuity

Pyrowave's teams are mobilized and continue all operations that can be carried out remotely, such as engineering, design and simulation activities, in telework mode. Business operations, financial activities and projects will continue, adapting to changing circumstances and those of our many partners. We extend our full collaboration to our partners and suppliers to find flexible solutions in the current environment.
