Growth in the Quebec foundation repair industry a strategic acquisition for Bisson Expert: Les Entreprises Donat Laplante Inc. joins Bisson to enable single source foundation repair services



    LONGUEUIL, QC, April 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Mr. Raymond Bisson, President of
Bisson Expert, announced an important company development today with the
acquisition of Les Entreprises Donat Laplante Inc. This strategic acquisition
will allow Bisson Expert to extend its market reach, by adding the
complementary services provided by Les Entreprises Donat Laplante Inc., a
company very well regarded for residential, commercial and industrial building
moving and foundation repair.
    Bisson Expert has offered specialized foundation repairs throughout most
of Quebec for more than 50 years. "Les Entreprises Donat Laplante Inc. is an
important Quebec company in the building raising and supporting business. This
acquisition is in keeping with our growth strategy," Mr. Bisson said.
According to Mr. Bisson, the current economic environment favours strategic
alliances between organizations that share similar markets. As well, the
initiative represents an opportunity to gain additional market share because
the building raising business has not previously been fully exploited by the
firm, due to a company shortage of specialized manpower. By adding ten new
employees currently employed by Les Entreprises Donat Laplante Inc., Bisson
Expert will now employ more than 60 people.
    "The market currently served by Les Entreprises Donat Laplante Inc.
represents a definite potential for us, and our combined and highly
professional services will definitely give us added clout," Mr. Bisson said.
Mr. Bernard Schinck, founder of Les Entreprises Donat Laplante Inc., said
joining the ranks of Bisson Expert is a privilege. "Together we have more than
70 years experience both in foundation repair and building moving." When the
acquisition is complete, Mr. Schinck will occupy the position of Director of
Building Raising and Moving Operations.
