Enterprises Interco Inc.
Founded in 1999, Les Entreprises Interco has everything to succeed; a niche product, innovative ideas and a team ready to take on any challenge.
“Interco was born from a first acquisition in 1999, when I was 23 years old. Three years later, I bought three competitors, '' says Éric Fafard, President-Founder. In 2004, the company purchased its first of five industry-leading automated pallet nailers. This is one of the key factors in the success of Interco. Our strength is to be able to count on very good employees and state-of-the-art machines. This is what allows us to offer a quick service as well as a product that meets the highest demands. ”
It is not without reason that this company specialized in the manufacture of custom pallets won an industrial merit from the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Drummond, as well as the title of the company of the year of the competition. ÉLAN CAE Drummond of the Junior Chamber of Commerce of Drummondville in 2010.
In 2009 an investment of $ 4 million was injected in order to advantageously position the company on the market. “We were really cramped in our former 24,000 square foot premises in St-Germain-de-Grantham. We have experienced multiple enlargements but we needed more. We could no longer develop new markets. This is why we moved to St-Eugène in a 100,000 sq. Ft. Factory with more than a million sq. Ft. Of land on the edge of Highway 20, "says Mr. Fafard. In addition to this move, Interco has spent several thousand dollars to acquire new machinery to improve its productivity. They notably added 2 heat treatment units in order to develop the market for pallets intended for export. “These run on biomass from our sawing and grinding residues, which gives a second life to the old pallets that we recover. This approach has enabled us to become a company that respects the environment more. We are proud to say that we are the only ones in Quebec to use this process. ”
The move combined with the acquisition of additional machinery has enabled the company to keep its raw materials and finished products inside which is highly appreciated by its customers. The use of integrated management software combined with qualified production personnel ensures superior manufacturing quality as well as rapid availability.
After more than 9 million invested since its inception, this entrepreneur has no shortage of visions and is still thinking of new projects. The future therefore looks very promising for Interco.See more
