Brochot Industrie, in its present form, was launched in early 2009 by Denis Gagnon. It is the result of a merger between a local Shawinigan firm, Industrie 04 Inc. and a French company, BROCHOT SA. At that time owned by Denis Gagnon, Marc Beaulieu and Sylvain Lépine, that had been in operation since 1995 in the industrial and commercial sector on the local, Quebec and Canadian markets.
BROCHOT SA already had a strong global reputation thanks to its manufacture of complex equipment for the aluminum manufacturing sector. Every aluminum plant in the world uses equipment that was designed, manufactured and delivered by BROCHOT. They were in business since the early 1900s until the end of 2014. Unfortunately, BROCHOT SA was forced to file for bankruptcy in 2015. A shockwave was felt around the world and Brochot Industrie, a subsidiary of Brochot SA, rolled up its sleeves and proceeded to buy back shares previously held by the head office at BROCHOT Industrie. Through this transaction, Mr. Gagnon was able to retain the company's business, preserve current jobs as well as create more, diversify activities and consolidate their gains.
Brochot Industrie has been expanding its fields of expertise since 2009 and currently offers a wide body of knowledge and significantly improved know-how.
In 2015, Brochot Industrie acquired the assets and intellectual property of NÉMO electric vehicles, again with the aim of economic diversification to generate profitable stability.
In 2016, Brochot acquired AIGUISAGE JBD, a company that had been in business since 1998 and specialized in sharpening industrial blades, honing saw mill blades, etc. This sharpening acquisition added another niche to their machining centre, again with the same goal in mind, diversification.
