«Mr. Lafrance quickly became essential to our project. Without his contribution, this project would not have been possible. His undeniable leadership, remarkable technical skills and vast network of suppliers exceeded our expectations and ensured our project’s success.»
Alberto Teyssedou, Ing., Ph. D.

«M. Lafrance works methodically and efficiently. He has an overview of problems and thus can optimize the approach to come up with simple, practical and clever solutions. He developed a great number of contacts to provide a spectrum of services. This allows him to obtain components, products and services very rapidly and economically.»
Michel Pettigrew, M.Sc., P. Eng., F. ASME

«The involvement of MËKANIC helped me to complete my PhD in 11 semesters. Their contribution to the design as well as their support for the manufacturing of two testing rigs speeded up the production of experimental data. Their experience and technical knowledge has clearly round out my training as a graduate student.»
M. Cimmino, Ph.D.

«Mr. Lafrance leadership skills enabled us to stand out and be innovative. The exceptional quality of the experimental assembly resulted in major recognition from our industrial client.»
Martin Levesque, Ph.D.

«Mr. Lafrance demonstrated exceptional expertise in planning, project management and mechanical design. His vast experience, versatility and extensive technical know-how made it possible to complete very high quality projects.»
Isabelle Villemure, Ing., Ph. D.

«The contribution of Mr. Lafrance has been invaluable throughout the design process and I greatly benefited from his technical support. His technical skills allowed me to avoid design errors and produce manufacturing drawings consistent with industry standards. This has greatly helped reduce the overall cost and duration of my PhD project.»
T. Sawadogo, Ph.D.




While committed to creativity and thinking outside the box, we explore all kinds of approaches with the research labs and then design custom test rigs and equipment. We integrate the most demanding requirements in a way that will make the end result stand out quickly. This brings experimental results to be published faster than ever.

Founded in 2013, we design and commission for and with the researchers. In addition to maximize the efficiency of research and ensure the reach of goals, we contribute to the development of the next generation by integrating graduate students at the heart of most projects.

MËKANIC understands the challenges and provides the technical support needed by universities. Our team consists of engineers, technicians and skilled designers from both academia and industry. We are paired with an extensive network of workshops and suppliers to quickly respond to the most exacting demands.
