Mercuriades 2016: Motrec acclaimed for its innovation

A crowd of almost 900 gathered in Montreal on May 16 to celebrate business excellence and daring innovations during the 36th edition of the prestigious Mercuriades gala.

Motrec is the proud recipient of the Innovation Investissement Québec award, in the SME category, awarded for the development of its unique AC Direct Drive powertrain.

“Seeing our team’s efforts celebrated and its innovative qualities honored in such a concrete way gives a sense of true accomplishment. We chose to take a risk, to go from a well-known and reliable product to something even better. Making it a true reflection of our reputation”.
— Jocelyn Gagnon, Director of Engineering & Innovation
