A Solid Foundation
Maçonnerie Blanchette was founded in 1905 by the great-grandfather of Michel Blanchette, Groupe MBI's current President. The founding father developed an expertise in masonry repairs and the construction of stone foundations and fireplaces, which over the years paved the way for the company's remarkable growth and its expansion to other services and areas of expertise.
Diversification and Participatory Management
In recent years, MBI has formed a number of successful business partnerships. Its organizational structure is centred on participatory management, teamwork, and professionalism. Thanks to its experienced and committed management team, Groupe MBI has earned a solid reputation anchored on excellence and achievement.
Groupe MBI currently encompasses 11 individual companies. While it continues to specialize in masonry and refractory blocks, the company has undergone major transformation and broadened its interests to other areas. It currently employs over 500 professionals who offer their services within Quebec and around the globe.
The company has remained a family-controlled business and consists of four senior partners: Michel Blanchette, his son Luc, his brother Pierre, and his cousin Marc. Other family members are also actively involved in the company, ensuring a smooth transition from one generation to another. As part of its commitment to good corporate citizenship, Groupe MBI supports several important causes in the community and offers a work environment where everyone feels respected and valued.
