October 1, 2003 -- Objectif Lune, a Montreal based international technology company has recently moved its head office from Bates Street in Town of Mount Royal to a 16,000 square foot location on Pie-IX Street in Montreal East. The purpose of this move was to accommodate the company's recent growth. In the past five years, the company has grown from a handful of employees to a team of nearly 50 in Montreal alone, with some 75 employees worldwide.
Now in its tenth year of operation, Objectif Lune is ready for continued expansion. When asked how he felt about reaching the 10-year mark, Didier Gombert, CEO of Objectif Lune replied, " It's exciting to look back and see how far we have come and how much we have accomplished over the past decade, but it's even more exciting to think about the goals and challenges that lie ahead."
The company credits its growth to the success and widespread acceptance of its flagship product PlanetPress and the tremendous ROI generated for companies that are using laser printers and are looking to reduce their printing costs.
On September 4, 2003 Objectif Lune was named the winner of the National Bank's SME awards in the categories of Small & Medium size Enterprises (SME) and Export SME.
