LAURIER-STATION, Que. – Aluminum trailer manufacturer Alutrec has announced Michel Parent has taken over as president and CEO of the company, assuming the position previously held by his nephew Julien Nadeau.
Daniel Frenette has been named general manager. The company also announced its minority shareholders have acquired the majority of the shares in the company. It says the corporate changes will allow the company to ensure continuity and better respond to market challenges.
“A renewed and strengthened leadership will give Alutrec the opportunity to extend its global presence in the market and ensure its continuous growth,” said Parent. “Today, a new chapter is beginning, but we will remain true to our mission, keep innovating, and put a greater focus on customer service. The only way to achieve such a goal is by relying on our skilled staff – the true architects of our success.”
Alutrec builds about 200 trailers a year at its Sainte-Agathe-de-Lotbiniere, Que. plant. By the end of the year, production will shift to a new 228,000 sq.-ft. plant at Laurier-Station.
