Dec 13, 2012

 Cogiscan, the leading provider of solutions for monitoring, control and traceability for electronic equipment manufacturers announces its partnership with the MiQro Innovation Collaborative Centre (C2MI).

The C2MI is an international research and development centre in microelectronics and advanced microsystems, located in the Bromont Scientific Park. The C2MI is a unique collaboration centre. In addition to state-of-the art equipment, the C2MI offers its members a true innovation ecosystem dedicated to the rapid commercialization of their prototypes.

Through this strategic alliance, Cogiscan is positioned to further accelerate the innovation and development of new products. The C2MI will enable Cogiscan to collaborate even more closely with some of its current clients and members of C2MI, including Teledyne and Varitron Technologies, as well as developing new partnerships with some of the largest manufacturers and suppliers in the world.  In addition to having access to the C2MI installations to develop and test innovative solutions, Cogiscan also will gain a technological showcase that will allow concrete demonstration of the functioning and benefits of the solutions offered in a production environment. 

Mr. Vincent Dubois, co-president at Cogiscan, commented about the association of Cogiscan withC2MI: “This is another very significant step for Cogiscan. Our reputation is built on our ability to innovate. We believe this investment will allow us to offer products and services that are more efficient and responsive to the needs of our current and future customers.”

Varitron Technologies, also a member at C2MI, has been a partner of Cogiscan for almost a year now in regards to the deployment of Cogiscan’s TTC solution (Track Trace Control) in its plants. “The C2MI encourages and facilitates networking with key players in our industry and allows us to develop an even more specialized expertise,” stated Michel Farley, President at Varitron Technologies.

The arrival of Cogiscan among the C2MI members considerably reinforces the services offered among the C2MI partners. The C2MI is indeed creating a complete ecosystem to allow all the innovation and supply chain contributors to work closely together. In this regard, the solutions offered by Cogiscan are essential to the optimisation of the manufacturing process of each member, regardless of their field of interest in the microelectronic industry,” concluded Normand Bourbonnais, President and CEO at C2MI.


Cogiscan partners with leading equipment manufacturers and electronics assemblers, to create solutions that, while integrating current systems, bring factory-wide TTC solutions.  Cogiscan is committed to continuously develop and improve Track, Trace and Control materials and tools on and off the floor.
