Our success stories

MySeat and Circuits Labo pool their expertise thanks to PME MTL Centre West.

As part of its mission to foster economic growth in its territory, PME MTL Centre West’s team of business consultants helped arrange a productive collaboration between MySeat and Circuits Labo.

For several years, MySeat had been manufacturing its products abroad. A meeting between these two businesses resulted in MySeat relocating its production operations to Saint-Laurent, in the facilities of Circuits Labo, which offered much more advantageous conditions than its previous supplier.

About MySeat

With its exclusive hardware and software suites, MySeat offers innovative solutions for workspace optimization and increased productivity. Its technology was entirely developed in Montreal. The firm entered the market in France in 2013 and in North America in 2014.

Since 2014, the Vanier Coop has been managing Jake’s Café as well as the cafeteria of Vanier College in Saint-Laurent. When it took charge of running the CEGEP’s bookstore, the Coop turned to PME MTL Centre West to fund part of the project, evaluated at $500,000.
