Usinage Marcotte inc. was established in 1992 by Mr. Hugues Marcotte. Located in Barraute, the company included Mr. Gabriel Marcotte (father), his son Hugues and two employees. Operating from a 2,000 sq. ft. workshop, the small company strived to provide machining, welding and manufacturing services for the forestry, mining and agriculture industries.
In 1995, the workshop was relocated in Val-d’Or to increase its floor surface to 4000 sq. ft, thus allowing Usinage Marcotte Inc. to better serve its ever-growing customer base.
In 2002, the workforce had reached a total of 18 full-time employees in addition to a complete field crew of 16 workers providing on-site support to customers and the company had started supplying the diamond drill industry with customized parts and equipment.
By 2012, the company had expanded its facility twice to reach a work surface of 15,000 sq. ft, built a 3,000 sq. ft paint shop and acquired a new 5,000 sq. ft building to centralize its machining division. With 60 employees working in the technical department, a growing administration team and an impressive team of welders, machinists and mechanics, the company had acquired sophisticated machine tools and a large plasma cutting table amongst other equipment.
Today, Usinage Marcotte Inc has 63 permanent employees working in five different buildings: a 15,000 sq ft building housing the administrative headquarters, the main welding facility and the warehouse; a 13,800 sq. ft welding shop; a 5,000 sq ft machining facility, a 5,000 sq ft facility for assembling, testing and developing products; and a 3,000 sq. ft paint shop.
