Who Are We?

AV&R is a globally recognized Quebec engineering company specializing in robotics, operating in the aerospace, energy, and orthopedic sectors.

We design complex robotic systems with a high level of technology. Our team of engineering graduates has developed expertise in gas turbine parts and orthopedic implants.

Specifically, AV&R offers robotic finishing machines (profiling, sanding, deburring) and automated visual inspection machines to manufacturers of gas turbine parts used in both aircraft engines and energy generation, as well as to manufacturers of orthopedic implants.

At AV&R, we know that process automation is useful to humans, and we believe it should be simplified. That’s why we’ve made it our mission: humanizing robotics! This means we want to make robots more accessible and tailored to our clients’ needs so they can be easily implemented in manufacturing plants, regardless of their field. The daily actions of AV&R employees are thus guided by the ambition to:

  • Simplify robot programming so that everyone can program them;
  • Make robots intelligent so they can react to their environment;
  • Collaborate with robots to assist humans in difficult tasks, not replace them;
  • Make our robotic solutions accessible to everyone by optimizing costs;
  • Guarantee safety to protect humans nearby.
