Primary Bas-Saint-Laurent Industries

In the Bas-Saint-Laurent, approximately 10,000 people work in 355 manufacturing enterprises and represent about 10% of the total working population of the region. The pulp and paper, food and beverage, transportation equipment and wood sectors employ 85% of the manufacturing workforce.

Determined, assertive and innovative, these companies have positioned themselves on the regional, national and international scenes. Evidence of their efforts lies in figures that show an average increase between 1989 and 1993 of 1.4% in manufacturing activity for the region compared to a 0.8% decrease for the province.

The region is home to unique companies that produce innovative products using distinctive production methods. These enterprises manufacture products that range from transportation equipment to electronic notice boards and from specialized equipment for mining peat to food flavourings that come from fir tree branches.
