Machinage Piché moves to its present location and adds to its services the design and manufacturing of wood handling machinery.

1990

Machinage Piché expands its plant by more than 5,000 sq. ft. to serve its growing clientele. The company, which employs about 25 people, computerizes its management, administration, and engineering departments.

A second expansion of the plant, also totaling 5000 sq. ft., is completed, still with the goal of providing better service to Machinage Piché inc.'s clientele.

Machinage Piché acquires the 36,000 sq. ft. plan no. 2, known as the “Domino”.

2002

A third expansion of nearly 12,500 sq. ft. is undertaken at Machinage Piché's Daveluyville plant. The Piché team consists of close to 50 people: welders, mechanics, technicians, draftsmen and engineers in the production, sales, engineering. and administration departments.

2008

After 38 years of operation, Piché boasts a team of 140 passionate and dedicated employees, who work in more than 80,000 square feet to serve an international clientele. The company is launching its new website to showcase its employees and its unique expertise.

Family is very important to Piché. The proof: I was hired as a replacement during my daughter's maternity leave and I’m still here! We both work here now. There is a wonderful atmosphere, and we feel fully appreciated. It’s priceless!
