About us

History

The year was 1961. A great wave of construction projects around the province of Quebec is in full strength with the James Bay Project and the 1967 Montreal World’s fair. Placide Mathieu founded Outillage Placide Mathieu in the town of Beloeil with a simple project in mind.

He wanted to help people work better and more efficiently in their every day job with quality tools and professional advises. With the support of his wife Denyse, began traveling on the south shore of Montreal with his truck full of tools.

Contractors and workers of all industries then began to be acquainted with a very-well informed salesman, who knew how to satisfy everyone of his client’s needs, whatever they were. Over the years, the reputation of Outillage Placide Mathieu grew over town and around the province, which led the way to the construction, in 1982, of the actual store on 670 Picard Street, in Beloeil.



Nowadays, Outillage Placide Mathieu is still an essential supplier and distribution center of high-quality tools and accessories in the fields of industry, construction and mechanic. Distributor for more than 250 renowned brands, we offer fast customer service, expert advises and a philosophy to help the customer find everything he is looking for at the same location.

Not to mention, our large inventory of genuine replacement parts and experienced technicians helped us being named “authorized service centre” for many manufacturers of electric and pneumatics tools.

Choice. Quality. Service. Three generations and millions of tools later, Outillage Placide Mathieu is still driven by these words.
