Camso has grown exponentially, expanding at an average pace of 7% per year since 2012.

By partnering with Camso, Michelin aims to create a leading OTR market player, headquartered in Quebec. They expect the business to benefit from the expertise of Camso’s management team and Michelin’s long-standing presence in Canada, in both Quebec and in Nova Scotia. The new acquisition is supported by 26 plants and approximately 12,000 employees
