Groupe Actium Inc. was founded on January 12, 2006 in the Terrebonne home of its founder, Jean-François Ouellet. Mr. Ouellet was working as a general contractor in residential construction and a trained terrace and patio designer.
In its first year of operations, the company began undertaking post-disaster renovation jobs for residential and commercial clients. The company set itself apart through its extraordinary drive and quality of work, and this earned them recognition from a major Montreal insurance company. Since Groupe Actium had all the required tools and equipment, third-party liability insurance and the highest certifications in the disaster restoration industry, the insurer placed the company among the top partners in its Rely Network.
Continued growth during its second year forced the company to move into a larger space at 3504 Jacques-Bureau in Laval. They joined a franchise network and actively pursued their development under that banner.
Groupe Actium Inc. became affiliated with three other major insurance companies and again outgrew its office space. Wanting to provide its clients with a better experience when purchasing flooring, the company became certified with the ICC Insurance Claims Collaborative Inc. [www.icc.ca] and established its own flooring division.
In January, the company moved to its current address at 3572 Francis-Hughes in Laval, tripling its office and warehouse space. The extra room allowed them to install a flooring showroom, which provided clients access to a full range of quality products at competitive prices.
Following a survey conducted by an external firm, the company received an impressive score of 94% customer satisfaction from CAA Habitation.
The company decided to step out on its own, leaving the franchise network to continue building a reputation founded on honesty and integrity in this highly competitive industry.
Groupe Actium Inc. was a finalist at the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de Laval’s Dunamis Gala in the 16+ employees category.
The company opened a new office, later known as Services Après Sinistre Rive-Nord, in St-Jérôme to serve clients in the surrounding area. The new branch was quickly noticed by two insurance companies, who added them as a specialized turnkey supplier of disaster restoration and construction services.
Groupe Actium Inc. has developed a solid reputation and continues to innovate in a highly competitive industry. We are proud to be among the top disaster restoration and construction firms in the region. January 2016 marks our 10th year in business.
