“Tech-Sport stands out for its fast, personalized, top-quality service. My seven years of experience enable me to effectively identify the client’s needs. People expect to have access to qualified technicians with specialized equipment, and we make this a priority,” said Flavio Gutierrez.
This new business fills a need that is particularly felt by competitive skiers and skaters who sometimes have had to travel to other cities to receive the high-end services they require. Tech-Sport is contributing to the development of a balanced retail presence.
“Mr. Gutierrez will rely on innovation and research to offer the best service. Sherbrooke Innopole supports the creation of business stemming from the ingenuity of Sherbrooke residents. A wide range of customers will be able to benefit from this entrepreneur’s expertise because his services are intended for both competitive athletes and people engaging in physical activities for fun,” highlighted Josée Fortin, Director General of Sherbrooke Innopole.
The launching of this business generated an investment of nearly $100 000, which notably enabled the acquisition of equipment and the hiring of a technician.
