Today a vast complex of equipment of all kinds, Les Équipements Marquis inc., knew a modest start. Former dairy farm owner, Jean-Guy Marquis made his first steps in the field by acquirering the old Lowney's plant. " I started from nothing: no customers, no building. Running from auctions to sales, I made myself an inventory. I also had to make numerous contacts, towards the customer as well as to the equipment source; if someone wanted a specific machine, I managed to find it for him!", explains M. Marquis.
This willingness to satisfy the customers, paved the road to expanding the company. "If I could not find something in used stock, I would proposed new equipment; that's how started the business of selling new equipements. In some cases, we had to adapt parts or even create a machine made to the specification of the customer : The machine shop was born !", continues M. Marquis.
Having developed a strong expertise in the field, Jean-Guy Marquis gives advice, even suggests the acquisition of equipment to his increasing customers, some of which are : Castonguay, Sintra,Camoplast. More than just a simple supplier, he has become, for many, a real business partner.
