Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ Invest $550,000 to Support the Growth of Équipement de bureau Ungava

Established almost 25 years ago, Équipement de bureau Ungava is well known in Nord-du-Québec. The company specializes in the sale, maintenance and after-sale service of office equipment, as well as the sale of stationery, school materials and office supplies. Owner Yvon Godbout, who acquired the company in 2008, recently renovated an adjacent building in order to expand his operations and better serve his customers.

Created in 1983, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ is a development capital fund that calls upon the solidarity and savings of Quebecers to help fulfill its mission to contribute to Québec's economic growth by creating and protecting jobs through investments primarily in small and medium-sized businesses in all spheres of activity.

The Fonds also seeks to encourage Quebecers to save for retirement and to offer its over half a million shareholders-savers a reasonable return over and above the outstanding tax benefits they receive for purchasing Fonds shares. A leading purveyor of unsecured risk capital (growth and venture capital), the Fonds continues to drive our economy.
