May 26, 2016 – With an established, worldwide presence, the company who specialize in CNC machinery for the window and door industry, has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. Last summer the company inaugurated a 12,500 square foot showroom in Montreal. Besides proving invaluable as a location to demonstrate their products (including its distribution division JRC Machinery) this showroom has also helped open up needed space in the Eugenie plant, allowing for an increase in production capacity.
According to the President, Richard Chauvette, the acquisition of the showroom meant the perfect transition for the company while taking possession of their new building. “We knew it was inevitable, given the growth of the company, that the acquisition of a new headquarters was imminent. The showroom was thus inaugurated in 2015 and less than a year later, we are about to settle into our new offices!” Proactive in its development, Groupe Eugénie invested more than 4.5 million in their new 60,000 square foot building, which it plans to operate out of by autumn 2016.
“85% of our customers come from United States and by 2023, we want to adapt our machinery to conquer Europe” says the businessman. Already present in many countries around the world, the company aspires to establish itself as an international leader. ” The priority is to build strong, long term relationships with each of our customers. In this context, we continuously have the opportunity to work together and find out what we can add to our product lines to remain at the forefront of each of their evolving needs” he insists.
With the economic benefits totaling over $11 million since the establishment of the showroom, Groupe Eugénie has grown by over 50% in just eight months. The company, which currently has 52 employees, plans to exceed the one hundred mark within the next two years. In addition, as part of its worldwide expansion, Groupe Eugénie also intends to increase the volume of its offered machinery inventory as well as provide a wider selection.
