A fine example of collaboration between 2 Quebec SME!


MSB Design, located in Boucherville, specializes in the design, engineering, manufacturing and assembly of parts and components of business aircraft interiors. AMEC Usinage, located in St-Augustin-de-Desmaures, specializes in the machining of small and medium-sized precision parts, for example, aerospace parts. They both chose to join strengths by signing a two-year partnership agreement for a Bombardier project.

For more than 5 years, MSB has been working closely with AMEC for the production of several machined parts of their products. On the other hand, about two years ago, a more concrete and formal thumbspartnership relationship was established between the two companies during the complete design, by MSB Design, of an airplane interior table for the C-Series program of Bombardier.

MSB Design has been innovative by involving, since the beginning of the project, its machining supplier AMEC Usinage. The two companies then collaborated intensively on this project through various meetings and technical interviews that were very frequent throughout the design process, until the delivery of the very first table at Bombardier.

In addition, the two management teams also ensured that the idea of partnership in the project was communicated very well to the employees of their respective companies. At both AMEC and at MSB, all employees at all levels were aware of the importance of the project and of the very open collaboration between the two companies to ensure on time delivery, quality and fair prices for the main customer, Bombardier.

By joining forces, companies quickly realized the immense benefits of this partnership!


MSB was able to benefit from the expertise of the specialists at AMEC, and AMEC was able to demonstrate to its customer the possibilities of improvements on the technical aspects in production, but also on competitive pricing and delivery. An even greater bond of trust has developed between the two companies!

After a few productions and deliveries to the main customer, Bombardier, in March 2017, MSB Design and AMEC formalized their partnership by signing a two-year supply contract for all machined components of the C-Series cockpit interiors.

Since this project, collaboration between the two companies is essential and inevitable from the beginning of new products conception.
