A family in the business of manufacturing of concrete products since 65 years
The PATIO DRUMMOND adventure started more than 4 generations ago when Charles-Édouard started his company specializing in cinder blocks and other concrete products on Mercure Boulevard in Drummondville.
Twenty years later, in 1970, Charles-Édouard’s son, Henri Lemaire and his wife Denise Vincent, restructured the business by opening Patio Drummond, first in the small village of L’Avenir and later, in Saint Nicéphore. Under their leadership, the company went from an artisan production to a mechanized one through automation and the use of specialized machinery. Constantly growing, the company acquired a solid reputation as a concrete tile manufacturer. Henri also diversified by creating Meubles Extérieurs Drummond, a company that manufactured concrete patio furniture and Latte Drummond HT, a company that made concrete slats for hog farms and barns.
In 1992, the third generation made its debut with Henri’s sons, who were already working in the company, and the growth continued. Alone at the helm and passionate about innovations, Yvan increased automation by introducing new technologies that would require opening new markets and would mean considerable investments in 1999 and 2004 in order to better position the company in the market place.
The company turned to diversification by acquiring a manufacturer of heat-resistant bricks in 2000, and in 2013, acquiring Paventia, a reputable) manufacturer of high end hardscaping products. Relying on its knowledge of concrete, Patio Drummond developed new product lines including slabs for balconies, pre-cast staircase and lamppost bases.. Tommy and Alisson are now well in place and prepared to take over.
