Jean-Benoît Pineault, General Manager of Groupe Réfraco, will be Honorary Chairman of the 2017 Aluminium Valley in Business Trade Show. Aluminium Valley Society President, Mr. Arthur Gobeil, made the announcement at the launch of CQRDA’s AL13 magazine on December 7, 2016, at La Pulperie de Chicoutimi Museum.
The 6th Edition of the Aluminium Valley in Business Trade Show, to be held at the University of Quebec at Chicoutimi and Le Montagnais Hotel on May 23-24, will be themed “Shining globally with aluminium”. Mr. Pineault has been engaged in global markets for many years as an equipment manufacturer for first and second transformation industries; therefore, the choice of this entrepreneur to fulfill the role of Honorary Chairman was unequivocal. “Groupe Réfraco is one of our region’s finest organizations, and we believe that Mr. Pineault’s way of structuring his marketing approach, his strong presence in the regional industry, and the way he creates growth for his business make him an ideal ambassador for aluminium industry companies in Saguenay─Lac-Saint-Jean,” declared Mr. Gobeil.
“Regional economic development is a challenge that truly motivates me, and I firmly believe that the 2017 Aluminium Valley in Business Trade Show is an essential event for companies that want to expand their markets through contacts with potential investors, buyers, and partners,” said Mr. Pineault. Furthermore, our Honorary Chairman will speak about Groupe Réfraco’s successes on global markets at a conference during the trade show.
