Leading the Energy Transition Through Construction

Bécancour Announcement

With innovation acting as the guiding principle behind Pomerleau’s operations, we believe that the future of building and infrastructure lies in sound technology, sustainable practices, and inventive ideas. 

We are proud to be constructing the Ultium CAM facility in Bécancour, Québec. The plant is a joint project between General Motors (GM) and South Korean industrial materials maker POSCO Future M. The factory will manufacture cathode active materials, a key component of lithium-ion batteries found in electric cars. GM will use the materials to manufacture batteries for its electric vehicles. The facility is expected to employ around 200 people and will be the first operational Cathode Active Materials (CAM) facility in Canada. 

Politicians and Pomerleau representitives.

This project is part of a larger vision to create an Energy Transition Valley, which will exist between Bécancour, Trois-Rivières and Shawinigan. The innovation zone will produce seven infrastructure and research projects, which will serve to develop the electrification of transport, decarbonize “the industrial-port sector,” and develop green hydrogen. 

Apart from our role in the Ultium CAM project, we are also working in close cooperation with the Société du parc industriel et portuaire de Bécancour to build the infrastructure that will ensure the development of the Energy Transition Valley. For us, contributing to this project is another proactive step taken toward building a greener future.
