The Thomas Bellemare company as we know it now was incorporated in 1959.
Well before 1959, Thomas Bellemare managed his father Nérée’s successful family business in Yamachiche. In 1959, four of the children were handed the reigns from their father and began to guide the company into the future. The four brothers, Gilles, Luc, Raymond and Maurice, would go on to found Thomas Bellemare and Sons Ltd.
At the time, they moved buildings, built houses and made their own concrete with a small mixer, yes that’s right, with a small mixer! They removed snow from roads in winter and did various work for the municipality, government and in agriculture. There is no doubt that these men were VERY hard workers.
