    Clement Forget, President and CEO of Clemex Technologies Inc. declared: “We are quite pleased with our sales in this Quarter.  While Q1 is traditionally the slowest in sales activity of all four Quarters for the company, and despite a slight drop in sales in Canada, North America sales rose by more than 80% this year reaching $1,220,619 while they were $668,948 for the same Quarter last year. We sincerely hope that this long waited regain in manufacturing activity in the US is here to stay and that the sector continues to grow since sales in all other countries outside North America remained nearly stable at $347,420 compared to $373,796 for this First Quarter.”

    With regard to the undergoing project of development of our hematology instruments, Mr. Forget continued: "this project continues to be demanding in terms of resources, as the team is finalising the ISO accreditations and validation procedures prior to our submission to Health Canada.  The Company is following its business and marketing plan set forward for the business development in the biomedical field, which includes commercial work. For that purpose and for the third consecutive year, the Company participated again this summer in two major Trade Shows in North America for the biomedical community."
