Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ Gaspésie- Îles-de-la-Madeleine Invests in Eon Art Canada

The Chandler-based manufacturer of high-end amplifiers, converters and loudspeakers

is set to conquer the international market


Chandler, September 8, 2021 – The Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ Gaspésie--Îles-de-la-Madeleine (FRS) is pleased to announce an investment in Eon Art Canada, a Chandler-based manufacturer of premium amplifiers, converters and loudspeakers. The funds will help build brand awareness for EON ART and help the company start marketing its exceptional products abroad.


A Québec company set on becoming the new reference for audiophiles around the world

Founded in 2017 after a decade of research and development, Eon Art Canada offers a unique product that emits the musical sound of a single-ended tube amplifier, the most pleasing to the ear, without the shortcoming of very limited power. Among its many innovations, this manufacturer has developed a volume control that makes it possible to achieve exactly the same performance at each of the 16 preset volume levels, which the ageing technologies of its competitors cannot do.


In addition, Eon Art Canada is the first company in the audio world to bundle all components that will wear out over time on an independent circuit board that is easily replaceable in order to offer “deprogrammed obsolescence,” thus minimizing its environmental footprint. Lastly, products are designed using the computing power of a network of embedded processors, and the design of electronic circuits is optimized using the largest supercomputer east of Québec City.


With the goal of establishing a distribution network on both sides of the Atlantic, Eon Art Canada wants to position its brand as the industry reference for sound neutrality while maintaining a reasonable entry price compared to other very high-end products. Although some units have already been sold, the large-scale marketing of EON ART products will begin by the end of the year. The company’s products are manufactured in Canada with quality components from around the world.


“We are extremely grateful to the Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ Gaspésie-Îles-de-la-Madeleine for this investment, which will allow us to start marketing our unique products internationally and make the EON ART brand a new reference for audiophiles around the world. This confidence and support of the FRS is our reward for 10 years of hard work to make this bold project a reality,” said Stéphane Hautcoeur, president and chief technology officer at Eon Art Canada.


“At the Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ, we’re always proud to back companies like Eon Art Canada that manage to stand out in their field by offering distinctive products that showcase Québec’s uniqueness and know-how. We were immediately drawn to this rather atypical project for the region, as it combines innovation and an international export component that will generate positive economic benefits for Gaspé. This partnership is part of our commitment to investing for a better society,” said David Lord, regional vice-president of the Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ Bas-Saint-Laurent and Gaspésie-Iles-de-la-Madeleine.
