Luncheon of the President by Conseil economique de Beauce

Members of the Estampro team attended the press conference to announce the 16th luncheon of the President of the Conseil économique de Beauce, which will be held on November 24, 2017. Our Director of Human Resources, François Lefort, speakers at the event. He will share with the audience the initiative set up by Estampro, in conjunction with Metal Sartigan, to offer more stable jobs, despite seasonal fluctuations.

Recruitment is a major issue in the Beauce region. Keeping good employees is a priority at Estampro. It is on the basis of this motivation that we have developed the COOP-RH program. This program allows the transfer of resources between two companies that have complementary seasonal cycles. In this way, people keep their jobs year round.

Okuma LB3000EX-II horizontal lathe

It is with pride that Estampro announces the addition of an Okuma LB3000EX-II machining lathe to its fleet of equipment. Built on Okuma's thermo-friendly concept, the LB 3000EX minimizes thermal expansion. This technology will allow very high precision machining, while being fast and efficient.
This acquisition is another step taken by the Estampro team to maintain its position as a leader in the manufacture of metal components.

A helping hand for recruitment

On September 6, Mr. Samuel Murray, political advisor to the Minister of Finance along with Mr. Jason De Oliveira and Conseil Économique de Beauce CEO Hélène Latulippe, toured a few businesses in La Beauce to meet with the leaders. Recruitment was at the heart of the discussions.

The availability of a good workforce is a major challenge for the development of businesses. The visit of these political figures shows their will to create a mesh that will be beneficial to help fulfilling this need.

At Estampro, doors are open to outsiders who want to be part of the team. We are looking for serious people and families interested in settling in our beautiful part of the country. The Beaucerons, and especially the Estampro team, are "good people". Join us now!

New : 6000 watts fiber laser cutting

Technologies are evolving and manufacturers must keep pace. That's why Estampro is proud to announce the addition of a 6,000-watt Alpha Fiber Optic Laser Cutting System.

The advantages of laser fiber cutting include:

  • Much higher electrical efficiency
  • Higher speeds when cutting thin material
  • Ability to cut reflected materials without fear of back reflections that damage the machine. This makes it possible to cut copper, brass and aluminum without any problem.

Another good reason to choose Estampro for the manufacture of metal parts.

Epic!

On Nov 5th, Dominic Fortin (President) and Etienne Rancourt (V-P Sales) reached the summit of Mount Athabasca, an emblematic mountain of 3,491 meters (11,453 feet) located in the Canadian Rockies. In total, Dominic and Etienne fought they way up and down the mountain for more than 21h in true winter conditions and with wind gusts up to 100 km/h.

They leave the safety of their car at 3 am. Dominic and Etienne trust their headlamps to find their way up the steep moraine field. At sunrise, they reach the foot of the impressive and heavily crevassed Athabasca Glacier. It's time to rope up and move cautiously, circling and crossing several deep and dark crevasses. Progress is slow. They must break trail in knee-deep snow, an exponentially arduous task as they gain altitude. They finally reach the base of the Silverhorn Route, a 500 vertical meters, 50 to 60 degrees snow and blue ice slope. Ice screws, technical crampons and ice axes are definitely required. An exposed snowy ridge finally leads them to the coveted summit. They start their technical descent via the AA Col just when darkness begins to set slyly. They rejoin their car late at night, not without having struggled to find their way in this endless maze of moraines.

It was truly epic!

Successful Challenge!

The serie of major sporting challenges continues at Estampro! On Saturday, May 21st, Caroline Fortin (Owner) and Etienne Rancourt (V-P Sales) have successfully completed the Presidential Traverse in New Hampshire in a single day. This is apparently one of the 3 most difficult single day hikes in the United States. A classic.

The Presidential Traverse, as its name suggests, is a 24 mile rocky and technical trail crossing from North to South the famous White Mountains range in New Hampshire. It passes through the summits of the ten highest mountains that compose it, all bearing the name of a former US President. Its highest point is Mount Washington, standing at 6,288 feet. In total, more than 19,000 feet of arduous climbs and ankle-twisting descents...

Caroline and Etienne begin their trek at 3:30 am and climb 2/3 of the ascent to their first objective, Mount Madison (5,367 feet), in the light of their headlamps. Roots, rocks, snow and ice already set the tone for the day. They are then rewarded for their efforts by a beautiful sunrise at the summit at around 6 am. The sky is clear, the air is cool, the wind is constant and temperature displays 3oC. They will then link up, under a quick and constant pace, mounts Adam (5,774 feet), Jefferson (5,712 feet), Clay (5,533 feet), Washington (6,288 feet), Monroe (5,384 feet) Franklin (5,001 feet), Eisenhower (4,780 feet), Pierce (4,310 feet) and Jackson (4,052 feet). They will be on the trail for a total of 12:30 hours, a fast time according to established standards.

Important note: it was Caroline's first ever hike! And Caroline to declare once exiting the trail: "Hey, it's already over? What's the next challenge? Whatever it is, it must be harder than this!"...

A machine. A real machine.

Mission accomplished!

Last weekend, Dominic Fortin (President) and Etienne Rancourt (VP Sales) achieved their goal by freezing temperatures. A total of 65 km walk in 2 and a half days in complete autonomy. After a 21k approach loaded with 85 lbs of material each, they put up their tent at the location that would prove to be their base camp for the long technical climb awaiting them the next day.

Day 2: They wake at 3:00 am and start the 6 km walk that leads them to the the base of Chimney Gully, a narrow gully of deep snow and ice of approximatively a 1000 vertical meters and 55 to 60 degrees of inclination. After two hour and half of effort, they reach the Knife Edge, a 2,5 km technical and aerial ridge that will take them a few hours later at the coveted summit. Then follows an icy and very steep descent by Cathedral Trail. The Park Ranger confirms later that they are the first team of the winter to succeed on this summit loop. The depth of the snow, often reaching the armpits, confirm that they indeed were! They finally reach back base camp at 4:00 pm. In all, 12 hours of continuous efforts at -30oC.

Day 3: After a very windy night that see the mercury will go down to -42oC, Dominic and Etienne backtrack the 21 km that will bring them back safely to their car. Mission accomplished!
