SHERBROOKE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2012) - The Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec, today announced that Groupe Domax Inc. is receiving financial assistance from the Government of Canada to implement its commercialization strategy.

"Our government has no hesitation in supporting Quebec SMEs which develop new products and adopt sound environmental practices by optimizing natural resource use," stated Minister Lebel. "Investment such as that made by Groupe Domax fosters Canada's prosperity in a context of sustainable development."

Building on expertise acquired since 2005, Groupe Domax is now ready to commercialize its innovative line of turnkey car washes-Car Wash in a Box-inspired by its low water-consumption hand car wash system. This new prefab mechanized car wash has its own water recovery, filtration and treatment system, enabling it first to use rainwater and then to reuse all the water that falls to the ground during a wash.

This $225,000 repayable contribution has been awarded under Canada Economic Development's Regional and Business Growth program, an initiative designed to strengthen the conditions for the sustainable growth of Quebec's regions and small and medium-sized enterprises. The program's aim is to help businesses improve their performance, become more competitive and engage in more innovation.
