STIM, founded in 2009 and housed since 2011 in the premises of the Comité de promotion industrielle de Brompton (CPIB – Brompton Industrial Promotion Committee), at 250 Laval Street, is now located at 99 des PME Street. The relocation cost $75,000 and will provide job security for the company’s 70 full-time positions. For David Marchand and Yan Labrecque, who co-own the company, the move marks an important step in the future of their organization: In their words, “sales have increased tenfold since 2009, and 2012–2013 is looking even better. If we wanted to keep growing, we had to move to larger facilities and invest in the company.”
STIM’s venture had financial support from BDC, the TD Bank, and Sherbrooke Innopole, in the form of a guaranteed loan. “We were delighted to support STIM. This is a young company with immense potential,” said Pierre Bélanger, Sherbrooke Innopole’s Director General. “Its services further boost the key advanced-manufacturing sector.”
Services Techniques Industriels Marchand offers technical support to manufacturers for regular maintenance and planned shutdowns. It also specializes in setting up production lines, optimizing mechanical processes, and designing and executing turnkey projects for clients such as BRP, Berry Plastique, Lafarge, and Bridgestone.
Although its customers are scattered throughout Quebec and the field is fiercely competitive, STIM is not only thriving but expanding so quickly that demand is exceeding supply. “What sets us apart is the quality of our work and our employees’ expertise,” explained Simon Cloutier, STIM’s operations manager. “We like to have the same personnel look after a given customer, which makes our service more personal, and we can provide assistance at almost every stage in a production line, from design to maintenance, including set-up, ensuring our customers get quality and reliability.”Back to the news
