QUEBEC – Fabrique Manic, a provider of PCB assembly services in SMT and thru-hole batches, has opened in Quebec. Located in St-Augustin-de-Desmaures, just outside of Quebec City, the company was founded by two colleagues already working in the tech field.
Dominic Gauvreau, president – electronic design and assembly, and Olivier Morin, vice-president – business development, aim to deliver solutions that alleviate complexities and delays of the physical product production cycle. Capable of providing both electronic design and consultation, the firm also manages rapid prototyping, including three-day turnarounds (upon receipt of parts). The PCB-related assembly services include mechanical assembly, firmware programming, board modifications and more.
Prior to launching Fabrique Manic, Gauvreau worked full time at Orisha Automation as a hardware/firmware developer while performing consultation work part-time as an electronics designer, and Morin worked at UgoWork, a tech company in Quebec City that offers EaaS (Energy as a Service) with lithium-ion batteries to power forklifts.
Fabrique Manic also provides product testing, backed by strong quality control procedures using optical inspection, and the firm manages cable and housing assembly to accommodate some clients.
“Our priority is always to ensure quality and flexibility. We can provide a lot of services to help our customers get their production started,” Gauvreau told EP&T.
