History of Le Groupe Gilbert

In 1957, Mr Fernand Gilbert was a self-employed truck driver working tirelessly on the road. He was highly admired by his children, who were dreaming of following in his footsteps someday. Who would have thought that half a century later, this family business would become the flagship to our regional and national economy in the engineering field, thanks to the audacity, perseverance and determination of a family of pioneers. An important member of this family, Rachel Gilbert, Mr Fernand Gilbert’s spouse, was an exceptional woman who supported and guided her husband throughout the years.

At that time, Mr Gilbert was exclusively working in the snow removal business, with only one to three vehicles and a loader. With its outstanding achievements, this business slowly grew to specialize into various related branches of industries.

To this day, many members of this family have joined Le Groupe Gilbert. Like Fernand Gilbert, those passionate individuals have no other objective in mind but excellence.
