Our company | Industries Rainville

Industries Rainville, nearly a century of history

Industries Rainville has close to a century of expertise in engineering and machinery. Founded in 1929, Industries Rainville – then known as Georges Rainville Machine Shop – first specialized in hydraulics for the commercial and private sectors. In 1980, the company became Rainville Hydraulic Equipment, before finally adopting its current name in 1991, a name that better reflects the company’s offering, which has become much more diversified.

Over the past few decades, and especially in recent years, Industries Rainville has experienced exponential growth. This growth is in large part due to the arrival in office of Ghislain Sabourin, the company’s fifth president, who has a distinctive vision for the future.

A passionate president who defies convention

When he took up leadership of the company at the end of 2014, Ghislain Sabourin had a clear goal in mind, to create 300 quality jobs in Quebec by 2030, A goal that has driven each of his actions ever since. In four years, the company has grown from 30 to 80 employees and continues to grow at a rapid pace. This man of heart is passionate about nature and works hand in hand with his team members to create wealth in the region.

Industries Rainville also means doing things differently to ensure collective well-being. Indeed, Mr. Sabourin’s arrival in office has brought with it a wind of change rarely seen in the field. By painting all the walls white and providing better lighting, an improved ventilation system, exceptional working conditions for all employees and state-of-the-art equipment, management has made every effort to create a healthy work environment where life is good and where people enjoy working.

Today, Industries Rainville’s reputation is well established in the field. The biggest names in the industry place their trust in Industries Rainville, and in return, Industries Rainville delivers exceptional all-in-one service on time and on budget. Today, Industries Rainville occupies a prime position in the North American market and is making its mark in Europe.

And the company’s history continues to unfold…

A mission focused on performance

Our mission is to spark the passion and imagination of engineers that have a project in mind and offer industry leaders innovative solutions to help them boost their productivity. That’s what we’ve been doing for over 90 years now. We don’t just design tools; we make it our duty to design them according to your deadlines and budget and subject them to rigorous quality control.

How do we do this?
