VILLE-DE-SAINT-GEORGES, Que. – After 30 years with Manac, Gaston Bureau is retiring and Charles Dutil will assume the role of president of the surging Canadian semi-trailer manufacturer.
Thrilled to have the opportunity to try to fill Bureau’s shoes, Dutil insists he and the organization will, “…Continue doing the same things we’ve always done. We’re going to still take things one step at a time and continue to grow our market share and strengthen our presence the U.S.”
He estimates Manac’s market share has increased by 50 per cent over what it was when economic times were stronger than they are today.
“The trailer business is not complicated,” he says.
“You just have to build a product a little bit better than everyone else and back it up with great customer service.” –
