First investment: Amecci’s warehouse is expanded due to a growing demand for its products for the board industry such as plywood, composite and MDF panels.
Second major investment : Amecci’s warehouse is expanded again, this time to install state-of-the-art equipment. Amecci becomes the largest converter of coated abrasives in Canada.
Amecci signs a partnership with 3M and becomes their official converter until 2008.
To meet a growing demand, Amecci moves into larger facilities located in Sherbrooke’s industrial park
Amecci acquires a major distributor of abrasive papers in the market of pre-finished hardwood flooring.
