— About Us —
P & M Technologies is a Canadian company formed in 1996. We specialize in
identifying commercial prospects for many of Canada's 4000+ plant species within an ecologically sustainable framework,
and we developed The Canadian NTFP Business Companion as a leading-edge NTFP
business guide for entrepreneurs and researchers. We are equally active in research on the physiology & resilience
of Canadian plants. We also have expertise in Information Technology — systems analysis, network administration,
programming, SQL scripting, data warehousing, backups & archiving, data conversion & migration — and in book
self-publishing. Recently, we've led a couple of science study projects in
remote sensing of chlorophyll fluorescence for the European Space Agency (ESA).
