Founded in 1978, Dumoulin & Associés Repairs Concrete Limited initially serves the residential sector and now dedicates itself mainly to the commercial and industrial sectors. We have earned an outstanding reputation and created lasting client relationships with our professional approach and highly specialized team.
1980, Economic expansion
By the end of the 1980s, the company was growing strong. We opened an office in Nepean, Ontario, and focused development in the commercial and industrial sectors. At the time, Dumoulin & Associates responded mainly to the maintenance needs of the pulp and paper industries in the provinces of Quebec and Ontario.
We used specialized processes such as epoxy or polyurethane crack injection and water-repellent sealant application. Over the years, we improved and expanded our techniques to the extent that we offer a complete and proven range of quality services.
2000, Key partnerships
Our greatest achievement happened in 2000, when the company partnered with some of the construction industry’s main suppliers, such as Sika Canada, with which Dumoulin & Associates is a certified approved installer of its products. As a result of these new key relationships, we are able to offer cutting edge technological services and are better equipped than ever to respond to the needs of our clients.
In 2007, the next generation breathes new life into the company. Once the work of a single man, we became a family enterprise, young and energetic, expanding our expertise and reinventing ourselves.
During our push toward modernization in 2008, Dumoulin & Associates moved its head office to a more spacious, welcoming and functional location in Laval.
2017, Solid expertise
We are committed to our quality of service, the continuous training of our workforce and the expertise of our engineers. Today, the company is ready to face all challenges head on!
The health and safety of our staff and the public are top priority at Dumoulin & Associates. Our main objective is to combine prevention, security and efficiency at work sites in order to respect the current standards and laws, such as the Regulation respecting occupational health and safety and the Safety Code for the construction industry.
We have put in place various safeguards in order to prevent accidents and occupational diseases. Our staff, subcontractors, visitors and suppliers must take note of our prevention program and are required to respect it when at our work sites.
By adopting a positive attitude toward safety, we hope to create a safe, accident-free work environment. With proper preventative measures, we can eliminate danger at its source and better maintain each individual’s physical safety.
Dumoulin & Associates applies a quality management system with the goal of meeting our clients’ demands and for continuous self-improvement, as required by the ISO 9001:2008 standard.
We are committed to meeting our clients’ expectations while complying with industry standards and while respecting our own professional obligations. With each job that we accept, we consider all the possibilities to ensure that the quality, cost and schedule are respected.
We try to keep a strong cooperative relationship and instill confidence between all stakeholders of the project. For us, communication and teamwork are essential for a successful project.
It was without any hesitation that we have taken the necessary steps to get ISO 9001:2008 certification. We wanted to prove to our clients that, beyond good communication and excellent work, we are committed to providing services that meet the highest quality expectations, at any cost.Adam Webber
