The cowansville factory

The cowansville factory

Founded in 1970, by Gilles Maurais, MEC PRECISION began operations locally in Cowansville.

In 1983, the company was incorporated under the name “Les réparations de Moteurs Électriques de Cowansville. Originally, the company specialized in the repair and maintenance of industrial electric motors, whose mission was to analyze and optimize the production efficiency of its customers.

In 2008, the company implemented several changes to increase its market share in eastern Canada. Alexandre Maurais, son of the founder, was appointed President and the company name was changed to MEC PRECISION. Following the decline of the local textile industry, the company had to diversify its services and refocus its operations. Thus, MEC PRECISION is redirected towards repair services of spindles, live tools, angle heads, servomotors, AC/DC motors and electronic components and related services for CNC

Our values

  • Passion
    Passion is the real desire, with enthusiasm, always wanting to excel and give the best of ourselves for our customers and for the reputation of our company. This passion strives through an uncompromising commitment to excellence and quality of offered solutions, and our effectiveness.

  • Team spirit
    Team spirit is the desire to combine our strengths and efforts with others in a common goal and to facilitate the functioning of the team. This is to have the reflex to proactively help each other to develop our expertise, recognizing that the difference of each member of the team is an asset for the performance of the organization. Team spirit also extends to the concern to communicate well, authentically (honest, transparent and without creating expectations), respectful and consistent information to the people concerned (both internal and externally with customers and suppliers).

  • Innovation
    Innovation requires everyone to think differently and to go further in thinking, priorising the effectiveness and efficiency of the customer solution. This is to constantly stay on top of new trends, new equipment, new processes and skills development opportunities that would enable us to achieve the mission and vision of our company.

  • Professionalism
    Every member of the team is a corporate ambassador. In addition to our outstanding technical expertise, professionalism is reflected in our desire to work safely, our appearance, our attitude and behavior both internally and with our clients.

    This included professional rigor, which is our pledge to provide high quality technical solutions to our clients. This rigor requires accuracy, attention to detail and accuracy of work (doing right first time).
