Rapid expansion

In 1964, Robert Clare Laframboise began business as a residential plumbing, heating and sheet metal contractor with six employees. Within five years, the business had expanded to include a mechanical and electrical division, and to serve industrial and institutional clients. In 1976, a further expansion established Ray Bolger Steel Fabrication, which designs and fabricates pressure vessels, heat exchangers and storage tanks.

In 1978, Laframboise Group continued its growth with the addition of a Pipe Fabrication Facility. Most recently, in 2014, Laframboise expanded once again with the addition of an 80,000 square foot module assembly and fabrication facility.

International success

In 1990, Laframboise expanded into the United States as the Laframboise Group. In 1995, the company completed its expansion to date with the establishment of Groupe Laframboise Ltee. in Quebec, concentrating once again in the industrial sector.

Today, Laframboise remains a family operated, privately owned trades contracting firm. The company maintains a head office in Cornwall, Ontario and also has offices in Thurso, Quebec, Massena, New York and Lake Wylie, South Carolina.
