(Saguenay, Québec, September 7, 2022) – Propulsa Innovations announced today that they have reached a significant agreement with Hewitt Group and two other financial partners representing an active participation in the ownership of the company to ensure its continued development.
An optimal partnership, aligned for all participants, has been created following an initial meeting held last October. As per Jean-Benoît Dumais, President of Propulsa, this meeting will forever be marked in Propulsa’s history: “This meeting, while very important, was informal, friendly and without any expectations. Initially, the objective was to help plan our growth. One thing led to another, and we realized that we really did have similar values and that a partnership would be ideal for our international growth.”
Hewitt Group Inc. was formed following the sale of Hewitt Equipment Limited in late 2017. Having operated an important Caterpillar dealership for over 60 years, Hewitt Group has extensive expertise in industrial services and equipment. David Hewitt, President of Hewitt Group, is very enthusiastic about investing in an industrial start-up: “We formed Hewitt Group with the objective of remaining active investors and builders in the Eastern Canadian economy with a long-term approach and by collaborating with the management teams. The values, the drive of the team, and the strong innovation potential behind the patented EPURA technology make Propulsa Innovations an ideal partner for Hewitt Group.“
In addition to Hewitt Group, the Propulsa team will have two additional investors with extensive operational expertise.
About Propulsa Innovations

EPURA technology eliminates the need for filter replacement while exceeding the performance of original filter systems in high dust environments.
