You are correct: our overhaul workshops in Varennes, Trois-Rivières, Baie-Comeau and Chibougamau closed in 2011.
We decided to stop overhauling equipment since it now costs less to replace certain kinds of equipment than to refurbish them. In addition, the new devices perform better: for example, they have a longer useful life and are less noisy.
We remain committed to reducing our expenses to offer our customers service at the best possible price.
We would like to mention that no permanent employees lost their jobs following the closure of these workshops.
