Poitras Industries Inc. originated as a lettering company. It was founded in 1930 by Paul-Émile Poitras. Over time, Les Enseignes P.E. Poitras Inc., evolved and broadened its scope to create theatre sets and floats. Since the 1960s, its has been involved in the rapidly growing commercial sign market.
Around 1970, manufacturing custom signs became the company’s primary business focus. It quickly earned an enviable reputation because of its skill, professionalism, and the quality of its products. P.E. Poitras became the benchmark for the competition and other professionals in the world of display, architecture, design and many other specialties in this field. Cities, municipalities and private companies rely on its expertise.
In the 1990s, the company became Groupe Poitras Inc. It added urban furniture to its sign products and also began to expand its reach into markets outside of Québec, including the rest of Canada and the United States. The company’s high-quality and impeccable service was very well-received.
In 2015, Guillaume Chabot, Patrice Demers and Marc Fugère acquired the still thriving business and refreshed the company’s image, renaming it as Poitras Industries Inc., to better reflect its North American presence. The Poitras Industries team works tirelessly so the company can continue to satisfy its many customers and accelerate its growth in markets in which it excels: signs, urban furniture and architectural projects.
