OUR MOST VALUABLE RESOURCE: OUR EMPLOYEES
A company is nothing without its employees, as they are its main business partners
OUR COMPANY PHILOSOPHY
The principle of continuous improvement is part of our company culture. We demonstrate our respect for our clients each and every day through the attention and care we devote to the manufacture of our products. One of the basic principles of continuous improvement is employee involvement. To achieve this, we focus not only on performing high-quality work but also on enjoying and taking pride in that work.
We encourage training with an investment ranging from two to four percent of our annual payroll. As a matter of fact, we received the 1999 Stellaris Award for workforce training.

The initial move into our new building.
From 1992 to 1997, the development of a new specialization in machine welding forces the company to occupy all available space.
The building is expanded with an addition in the back and repainted in the company colors.

Further construction is anticipated for the end of 2019, adding another 10,000 square feet to the current building for a total of 50,000 square feet.
The manufacture of machine-welded and non-welded parts. Our biggest asset is the full range of services we provide.
Stainless steel…our greatest strength
Over the years, Machinerie P&W inc. has succeeded in developing a specialization in the manufacture of stainless steel products. Today, approximately 80 percent of the machined parts at Machinerie P&W are made from stainless steel, although the company also machines aluminum (approximately 20 percent of production) and plastic. The company has made it a mission to be one of the best-quality welding and machine shops at the international level.
The goal is to manufacture small and medium-sized parts as a subcontractor, fulfilling small- and medium-volume orders with reasonable delivery times. These parts would be used in every sector and subsector of the medical, laboratory, transportation, nuclear and recreational industries, among others.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Our organization’s commitment to quality has always been a crucial element. In this regard, the company has already made its reputation. Now, it’s a matter of making that reputation known. Given our specialization in the manufacture of stainless products for use in laboratories and the medical sector, it’s not only important but, rather, indispensable for us to put quality first in every project, even before the work begins.
In a context of international operations, the company has made it a mission to be one of the best welding and machine shops in terms of quality.
In our strategy for spreading our reputation and developing new markets, we, as an organization, can’t claim that a commitment to quality is the driving force behind our products, the most important part of our culture or our greatest source of pride without credentials to support those claims. Some of the most recognized certifications at the international level are the ISO standards. Machinerie P&W was one of the first companies in Quebec—and in Canada—to obtain ISO 9001:2000 Certification. Today, that certification has been renewed and updated to 9001:2015 to ensure the consistent application of our philosophy, i.e. to improve, confirm and maintain the pride we take in the quality of our products.
