Lafarge Canada Inc. announced today its investment in EXACT Technology Corporation, a Toronto-based company that offers digital solutions for the concrete industry, in a collaboration that the company says builds on its commitment to driving transformation in the global construction sector.

 “Technology and sustainability are driving the construction industry's future, and this investment in EXACT aligns with our strategy to accelerate green growth, driving building transformation and enhancing efficiencies,” David Redfern, president and CEO of Lafarge Canada (East), said.
