READ BIO

 

Mario has extensive experience in design, engineering and production with skilled knowledge of automated equipment, production systems and transformation of composites. As a youngster fascinated and passionate about cars, he studied engineering through college while building vehicles from the ground up as a hobby.

Having put his dreams aside to work with renowned engineers in the mining, pulp and paper industry and in aluminum manufacturing where he gained proficiency as a material resistance specialist, he later developed new procedures as a bench mark for subsequent structures. This pooled background mixed with a culture that everything is possible established a granular approach to accelerate production lines with a just in time approach. Laser focused and reminded of childhood dreams, Mario was determined to bring his capacities and Bible of knowledge to fruition by building a prototype of an electric vehicle today called the Tomahawk sports car.

Mario was raised in a family-owned business operating in industrial automation, creating innovative recipes and equipment serving as efficient extensions in the workforce thus replacing humans with machines we now call robots. He has self-funded Dubuc Motors since its inception.
