On Friday, December 8th, the 5th edition of the Gilles-Demers Awards Gala took place, organized by Aéro Montréal, aiming to highlight the leadership and excellence of aerospace SMEs in Quebec. We had the privilege of being finalists in two categories: Growth and Wealth Creation, as well as International Outreach.
It is with indescribable pride that we were honored with the Growth and Wealth Creation award, and especially the prestigious Grand Prix Gilles-Demers for SME of the Year. This recognition is particularly significant for us, especially considering the quality of the finalists who shared the stage with us. These accolades confirm that our efforts in recent years align with the industry’s needs and underscore the importance of our commitment to:
- International growth
- Process improvement efforts
- Material reuse initiatives in the industry
- Community involvement
The Gilles-Demers Awards celebrate the Quebec expertise of SMEs on strategic topics, showcasing exemplary companies. The presentation of the 2023 SME of the Year Grand Prix in aerospace to Optima Aero during the 2023 edition attests to the excellence of our operations and our significant impact in the sector.
It is important to highlight the immense contribution of our entire team to the company’s growth and the quality of our operations.
