Mr. Marcel R. Tremblay (Quebec-Est):

Madam Speaker, I was delighted to hear that ABB, a high tech company in my riding, has taken another step to make its Quebec plant one of its most important condenser manufacturing units in the world.
Since it opened in 1991, the Quebec plant has been growing steadily and will double its capacity for the production of condensers by the first quarter of 1994, to supply the North American market.
ABB employs about 2,700 people in more than 35 plants in Canada and has annual sales of about $1 billion. It is involved in many activity sectors including the production, transmission and distribution of electric power, industrial automation, steam generating systems, robotics, measuring instruments, environmental technologies, telecommunications and high-speed trains. The people of Quebec are proud to be part of the technology boom generated by ABB's experts.
