The Meritas Trophy of the Laval Chamber of Commerce

A shrewd businessman, Dr. Armand Frappier contributed to the creation of several high technology companies in the biomedical field through the Institut de microbiologie et d'hygiène de Montréal, renamed the Institut Armand-Frappier in 1975. For example, in 1978, the Institut set up IAF Production Inc., which later became IAF Diagnostic. In 1981, the Laval Chamber of Commerce honored Dr. Frappier’s entire career by giving him the Meritas trophy. A souvenir certificate accompanied the trophy.
