Convectair Donates Heating Equipment to Habitat for Humanity QuébecIn partnership with Habitat for Humanity Québec, Convectair is donating two heating units for a pair of semi-detached houses to be built this year in Ormstown.

The new homes are a project undertaken by Habitat for Humanity Québec, the New Frontiers, and the Châteauguay Valley Career Education Center. The homes will be sold in summer 2017, with no down payment and no interest, to low-income families in the region.

Under an agreement Convectair signed with Habitat for Humanity Québec in fall 2016, the firm is supporting the organization’s commitment to building affordable homes, which Habitat for Humanity sees as a way to end the cycle of poverty.

Convectair is a high-quality manufacturer of electric heaters established in Quebec since 1983.

For the past couple of years the industrial segment has been “challenged.” Much of this was driven by the decline in the oil and gas market, which had a significant ripple effect. Concurrently, a strong U.S. dollar hurt exports for many OEMs and the agriculture market was soft, further hurting that segment’s equipment market.

Overall, the industrial decline significantly impacted distributors and manufacturers. And a key product category, industrial automation and control, was the most impacted. But according to manufacturers and distributors in many parts of North America, the industrial market appears to be turning. Growth, compared to last year, is coming back. Some is due to increased investment in energy projects.
