Montreal - After several years of investments in sophisticated design and construction of the most recent extension phase housing its new Bio-Circle facility, the entire 92,000 sq. ft Walter Surface Technologies International campus is now complete on its original Montreal (Pointe-Claire, Qc) site and is poised to grow in all of its business segments.
