In the early 60′s, new methods of construction began transforming the existing commercial and residential markets of the Montreal area. A new and revolutionary product was being introduced, the gypsum board. A more economical and faster method of building partition walls was now available. It was soon obvious to Gratien Proulx that a new way to service these builders was needed. Gratien, who worked as a construction materials delivery man, lost no time and founded G. Proulx Inc. in 1966.
Gratien began looking for better trucks to accommodate the gypsum board size and bulkiness. The introduction of winches and pulleys, special carriages and many other devices were some of the solutions used until the advent of the boom-truck. A new service industry was taking shape and G. Proulx Inc. was at the forefront. Competition for the new growing market brought in new players that started offering similar services.
