The Journal de Montréal recently published an article regarding the beginning and rapidly growing activities of the company.

Héneault et Gosselin was born with the construction of Highway 20 in the 60’s. The residents affected by the construction expressed their need to move their home and to have renovations conducted simultaneously. Entire villages were affected by the construction of the highway and contractors Conrad Gosselin and René Héneault jumped on the opportunity to start developing many major projects.

In order to diversify the company’s income and to adapt to the lowering industry demands in the 70’s, the contractors sought out new challenges. They opened a prefabricated homes factory (Rivière-du-Loup) and launched a new business segment: underpinning (Montréal Island).

Today, hydraulic piling projects represent over 60% of the company’s contracts while building transportation demands mostly occur when a major event happens, such as the construction of the Osisko gold mine in Abitibi-Témiscamingue or the Katrina hurricane in New-Orleans.

The company is very active in the research and development of new technologies. The company’s shareholders are very passionate about what they do. According to Manon Gosselin, the general manager of the Hénault et Gosselin Montréal division, it is the most important thing for any entrepreneur.
