Ficodis Group strengthens its presence in the Québec area with the
acquisition of Outils Plus M.J. and TH Pelletier
Montréal, September 8, 2016 – Quebec-based company Ficodis is pleased to announce the acquisition of two renowned companies in the Québec area: Outils Plus MJ., an expert in tools and abrasives, and TH Pelletier, which specializes in the supply of all types of pumps.
“The acquisition of these two well-established companies from Québec and Lévis helps strengthen our presence in the Capitale-Nationale region, a vibrant region with great development potential for Ficodis,” said Christophe Bévillard, President of Ficodis, an industrial supply distribution group headquartered in Montréal.
Located in Québec, Outils Plus MJ. was established in 1994 by Martin Jacques, who remains its president. With steadily increasing sales, a large inventory and especially, its 16 professional, customer-service-driven employees, Outils Plus MJ. is a deep-rooted company that has enjoyed sustained growth.
“We decided to join the Ficodis Group to gain access to new supply resources, a broader range of services and more specialized expertise,” said Martin Jacques, President of Outils Plus MJ. “In addition, keeping our current employees was a major part of our decision making. Outils Plus MJ. has made great strides over the past 22 years, thanks to its loyal and devoted team; it was therefore essential that we preserve that,” he added.
TH Pelletier has been specializing in the supply of all types of pumps for nearly 100 years. The company, which was established in 1921, is recognized throughout Quebec for its unrivalled expertise. It was acquired by Pièces industrielles Québec (PIQ), a member of Ficodis Group, and will now go by the name PIQ-TH Pelletier and will continue its activities in PIQ’s expanded office in Lévis.
“This partnership will help ensure the succession and continuity of our company. The conditions put in place by Ficodis Group will support our continued development. Furthermore, we hope to share our solid expertise with the entire group,” said Julien Roy, former president of TH Pelletier.
Mr. Roy will assist Eric Landry, President of PIQ-TH Pelletier, in implementing and developing the new structure. For Eric Landry, “the acquisition of TH Pelletier and the integration of its team will allow us to add pumps to our range of specialties and gain access to major lines like GRUNDFOS and FRANKLIN ELECTRIC.”
