The founder, Christian Larocque, had just closed his previous excavation business due to the competition, which at the time was too fierce. Thus, in 1985, Mr Larocque decided to purchase his first transport truck. His new business began with small contracts, here and there, and over time he was able to purchase more trucks. By the mid-90s, he owned 6 trucks. Christian Larocque then hired a dispatcher, Guy Duguay. Mr Duguay had previously worked as a driver for Mr Larocque and decided to put his expertise at the disposal of the company so that he could help it to gain some momentum.
During the 90s, the business mainly focused on transporting goods all across North America, East to West and North to South. From the start, the company's priority has always been to offer an exemplary service and to adapt to the needs of its clients.
En 1995, the business was incorporated under the name of Christian Larocque Services. In 1998, a new building was constructed and became the headquarters for the company as we know it to this day.
In 2005, Christian Larocque decided to return afresh to the excavation field. Thanks to his experience in this area, he was able to grow this sector of the business, which already represents 50% of the company's revenue. The excavation side of the business is now managed by his son, Bernard André.
In 2009-2010, Christian Larocque obtained some substantial contracts in the field of excavation, which allowed him to strengthen his business and to acquire experience.
In 2010, his other son, Rémi, who worked as a truck driver for his father's company, left his seat behind the wheel to take an administrative position within the company and to assist with dispatch; a position he holds to this day. In 2011, Christian Larocque hired a controller, Westley Wilson, to ensure the best possible financial management.
As of this day, the company now employs 40 permanent staff and50 staff during the busiest periods. The company's fleet features approximately 25 transport trucks and 60 trailers, as well as several machines and pieces of equipment for excavation. It also has its own garage which is well equipped for the repair and maintenance of heavy machinery.
In 2014, Christian Larocque passed the torch to his two sons, Bernard André and Rémi, but remains active within the company as president. Guy Duguay and Westley Wilson also became business partners.
