MONTREAL – Renewz sustainable solutions inc. is pleased to announce an agreement for financial backing from Montreal investment fund, PME MTL Centre-Ville. The deal grants renewz a $15,000 grant and a $200,000 loan in support of the company’s vision to become the leading North American provider of solar powered carports and electric mobility technologies. “This financial support from PME MTL Centre-Ville is very important because it is part of the continuity of growth of our company, especially on an international level,” said renewz CEO, Sass M. Peress. “We are simultaneously working in two explosive markets: solar energy and electro-mobility. As a Quebec company, we are proud to be able to increase the export market commercialization of our technologies.”
Renewz signed a manufacturing license in the spring of 2016 to produce solar carports in Canada designed by the Italian firm, Giulio Barbieri. The company continued to expand its reach last November, by launching its new range of iSun ™ solar shelters in Israel, as part of Montreal mayor Denis Coderre’s trade mission. PME MTL is excited to have a hand in supporting a growing business like renewz. “Sass Peress is a leader in international marketing and a pioneer in the commercialization of the solar industry. We are very proud to encourage the commercialization of a promising undertaking. Renewz is a company to be monitored with economic benefits that are likely to be very attractive to Montreal,” says Christian Perron, Managing Director of PME MTL Centre-Ville.
These new financial agreements will allow renewz to expand its workforce and focus on making its solar carports available around the globe. “Being able to add more staff at our Montreal office will allow us to expand our sales efforts abroad,” added Mr. Peress. With PME MTL on board, renewz is continuing its mission to deliver a durable, customizable, eco-friendly energy solution to its customers.
