Sorel-Tracy Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    QIT’s metallurgical complex in Sorel-Tracy is the only one of its kind in the world. It is the site of several interconnected plants with varied but complementary types of production. The reduction plant is at the heart of the complex and has nine furnaces that feed the entire production line. The smelted ore is transformed into titanium dioxide and iron, or transported to the steel plant and the metal powder plant for further processing. The resulting products are used as raw materials by pigment producers, the automotive industry and foundries. Developed by QIT in the 1940s, the reduction process makes it possible to extract iron and titanium dioxide from the ore and made QIT the first company in the world to remove iron from ilmenite for commercial use. QIT-Fer et Titane employs more than 1400 people at its Sorel-Tracy site. Home to the production facilities, the complex also houses the QIT research centre and the company’s head office.
