Collette Sands Ltd was born in 1978. Initially, it was a small family business whose main activities were sand sales and transport as well as residential home excavation works.
In 1984, Mr. Jules Collette was nominated President. Six years later, in order to provide for the company's long-term sustainability, the Board of Directors decided to appoint the services of professionals to promote development of new market niches and thus stimulate corporate growth. New types of aggregates were also created.
In 1999, Collette Sands founded the new division Gersol Construction inc., specialized in civil engineering and environment, and entirely independent of sand sales and transport operations. Since then, the firm has stood out through executing major works and projects in its own segment.
Out of concern for offering services that meet high quality criteria, the company obtained ISO 9001-2000 certification in 2005, then "Remarkable Employer" accreditation in 2008.
President's Word Gersol Construction, favoured thanks to its geographical location, has beneficially positioned itself during the past few years. In partnership with firms such as Groupe Océan, Abitibi Consolidated, Genivar, Dessau, SNC-Lavalin, LVM Technisol, Shell Canada, Esso Imperial Extrata and Rio Tinto, we have taken part in major projects in the Montérégie, Mauricie, Lanaudière and Greater Montreal regions. We are now looking ahead to prepare for projects in the offing.
Our Board of Directors, always ready to take up new challenges, monitors the company's good run of business and proper course of management. Our decision-makers gathered their ideas to create a vision and build a structure conducive to attaining short-, mid- and long-term objectives. Productivity and quality are at the core of our concerns so we can remain competitive and open up to new markets. Our growth strategy rests on consolidation of our strengths.
