MONTREAL - Dectron Internationale announced that it has signed a research partnership agreement with Concordia University, a leading Canadian educational and research institution. The objective of this collaboration with Concordia's Indoor Environment Group of the Department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering, is to develop new air filtration and purification technologies for use in Dectron's Indoor Air Securityâ„¢ program.

Commenting on this partnership, Brian Monk, P.Eng, vice president, sales and marketing, stated, "Ongoing research and product development is essential for Dectron Internationale.
