Montreal is Canada’s second-largest city, with a population of 1.7 million, 1.94 million in the urban agglomeration, and 4.1 million in the metro area. Founded in 1642, it was originally named Ville-Marie, or “City of Mary”, and now named after Mount Royal, the hill with three peaks that sits at the heart of the city. The city is centered on the Island of Montreal. It is a major center of commerce, industry, finance, technology, and culture. It is renowned for the world-famous Montreal Canadiens, the NHL hockey team that has won the most Stanley Cups, a record 24x. Montreal is one of the most bilingual cities in Quebec and Canada, with over 59% of the population able to speak both English and French. it is the second-largest primarily French-speaking city in the developed world, after Paris. This makes it one of the most diverse and multicultural cities in the world, as reflected in its competitive restaurant industry and world-class events such as the TD/Rio Tinto Montreal International Jazz Festival, Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, and the Montreal Grand Prix.
Quebec, also known as La Belle Province, the Beautiful province, is a unique member of the Canadian family with a marketplace well matched to Nemalux’s products and services. That Canada is bilingual, with two official languages – English and French show how important the province’s culture and heritage are. Quebec’s economy is diversified and post-industrial, accounting for 20% of Canada’s GDP. At the heart of Quebec is Montreal, the cosmopolitan city whose economy is among the biggest in Canada and accounts for 1/3 of the GDP of Quebec. If considered a country, Quebec’s economy would rank the 44th largest in the world. It has a highly diversified economy, whose major industries include aerospace, finance, mining, tourism, pharmaceuticals, forestry, software engineering, transportation, telecommunications, manufacturing, food processing, textile/apparel, tobacco, and petrochemicals. Quebec is home to world-famous engineering giant Bombardier as well as Hydro-Quebec, the world’s largest hydroelectric power utility. How do these industries stack up against the rest of the world? In aerospace, Montreal is one of the three main aeronautics hubs in the world, alongside Seattle and Toulouse, France and Quebec account for 52% of Canada’s aerospace production. Nemalux products can be used to light airport hangars and ideal for providing optimal lighting in conditions where airplanes require servicing. NASA’s Ames Research Center shortlisted Nemalux to develop specialized lighting for their Unitary Plan Wind Tunnel, where advanced aeronautic testing is done on next-generation aircrafts and spacecrafts.

In renewable energy, Hydro Quebec has been in discussions with New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, who wants all public infrastructure in New York city to be fed by zero emission hydroelectric power. Quebec could effectively become a major energy supplier for Northeastern US. In manufacturing, in spite of NAFTA uncertainties, Quebec is making an aggressive push to modernize and digitize manufacturing facilities to prepare for the fourth industrial revolution. Nemalux LED lighting solutions find use in substation applications where reliability and long life is critical.
Did you know that there is more to Quebec’s food industry than just Poutine? It is, in fact, Canada’s leading province in processing milk, pork, chocolate, cocoa and maple syrup products. It’s also responsible for 70% of Canadian yogurt production and 75% of cheese production. In many wet food processing environments, NSF lighting is required. The Nemalux AR luminaire is one of the industry’s most versatile low power, long life food grade lighting solutions. It is NSF certified to operate in tough food manufacturing environments. Its unique shape and material design prevents organic matter from sticking to its surface.
Quebec is the third largest petrochemical refining province in Canada, following Alberta and Ontario. This industry is well known for its requirement for hazardous location approved products. Originally designed for Alberta’s oil patch, Nemalux industrial lighting products have been designed to operate in the most extreme hazardous location lighting environments. Nemalux designs a broad range of UL approved LED luminaires to meet North American hazardous location standards. Nemalux offers petrochemical refineries class I div 1 LED lighting products, explosion proof LED lighting products and class I div 2 LED lighting products for Oil & Gas, petrochemical, mining and explosive dust applications. While not as well known as other industrial lighting brands, Nemalux can cross to almost any major brand, and offer many competitive advantages, including complementary lighting design, which can become a major expense on a lighting project. Nemalux’s new generation of LED luminaires make use of secondary optics to allow configuration of a large number of optical beam patterns. Along with many different mounting options and flexible pole mounts, Nemalux LED luminaires could reduce the number of lights required on a project up to 30% compared to typical competitor products. In large refineries and plants with kilometers of walkways and platforms, this adds up to a significant cost savings.
The world-famous Saint Lawrence Seaway, one of the engineering marvels of the 20th century runs through Quebec. The Saint Lawrence Seaway’s 13 Canadian and 2 American locks allow ships to move 1197 km from the Atlantic, along the Saint Lawrence River to reach the Great Lakes, at an elevation of 183 meters above sea level. The Saint Lawrence Seaway is an integral part of the Great Lakes economy, which at six trillion USD is the third-largest in the world. Subsequently, the Port of Montreal is one of the largest inland ports in the world, carrying 22 million tonnes of cargo per annum. Grain, sugar, petroleum products, machinery, and consumer goods are transported to Montreal from across Canada, the U.S. Midwest, and U.S. Northeast by rail. Industry leaders such as Roger & Lantic Sugar and Archer Daniel Midland (ADM) have a presence in Montreal. It is no surprise that it is Canada’s largest railway hub, a transshipment point which CN, the Canadian National Railway calls home. Reflecting on growing trade, CN is upgrading Montreal with a major new port expansion. Shipbuilding and repair services are found along the Saint Lawrence River – in Montreal (Mount Royal/Walsh, Navamar) Quebec City (Chantier-Davies Canada, Group Ocean), and the mouth of the Saint Lawrence (Forillon Shipyards, Meridien, Verreault Navigation).
The transportation industry, both marine, and rail provide many use cases for Nemalux industrial lighting products. Nemalux provides marine grade lighting solutions that are certified to ABS lighting and UL 1598A marine standards. They are triple coated to provide superior protection in corrosive marine environments such as ports, marinas, docks, offshore rigs, terminals, and ships. Nemalux’s GS linear models are one of the only linear LED luminaires to be certified to the ABS standard. A number of large railway tunnel lighting projects have made use of Nemalux luminaires, leveraging both Nemalux luminaires combination of price competitiveness, long life, high lumens, compactness and hazardous location certifications to light kilometers of tunnels. Nemalux offers custom solutions for transportation applications as well, such as custom signal lighting for the City of Calgary public transit’ “Transit Priority” program.
20% of Canada’s minerals come from Quebec and are the most diverse in Canada. Quebec mines are Canada’s biggest producers of gold, iron, and zinc. They also produce significant amounts of nickel, titanium, niobium, copper, and rare minerals such as niobium, titanium dioxide, cobalt, and platinum In 2017, the mining and natural resources industry shipped $9.47 billion of minerals. Nord-du-Quebec, Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Cote-Nord, and Montérégie generated 87% of this wealth. Australian-British mining giant Rio Tinto has a major presence in the province, with its 68,000 strong workforce, and especially the merger with Canadian Aluminum smelting giant, Alcan, a Canadian mining institution. Rio Tinto is now the world’s largest aluminum producer, and the Saguenay – Lac-Saint-Jean Smelting plants provide a significant share of the world’s Aluminum. One-fifth of Canada’s mining output comes from Québec. The resources exploited there are the most diverse in Canada: 15 metals and 13 minerals are produced and upgraded there, including lithium, rare earths, and apatite.
The resource sector provides ample opportunity for lighting applications for Nemalux‘s rugged, industrially-hardened high-efficiency luminaires – from underground mine lighting to above ground, conveyor belt, and walkway lighting.
