The company welcomed its customers and partners to its warehouse beautifully decorated with curtains and lights. More than 300 people from various industries – pharmaceutical, food, real estate, health and wellness – enjoyed high quality Italian cuisine, music, meetings and inspiring conversations. Frare & Gallant President John Frare took the stage to thank his guests and his determined team, “We want to continue to provide a quality product to our customers and offer excellent service while respecting established budgets,” he stated. Frare & Gallant to become a leader in the construction industry by upholding their company values – excellence, listening, respect, surpassing and passion.
In addition to offering impeccable customer service at all times, Frare & Gallant prides itself on offering a 360° approach in all its projects. Indeed, whether it is a question of managing construction or industrial maintenance projects, F&G meets all its customers’ needs. The company gets involved at any desired stage, whether it is for a total project management (turnkey) or to work in collaboration, hand in hand with the customer (fixed price). The very fact that the company has the ability to take charge of an entire project allows it to perform at any stage when it has a more specific and defined role to play.
The expertise F&G has acquired over the years allows it to offer its services in various sectors such as commercial, institutional, pharmaceutical and office space. Regardless of the field, F&G has major clients who have repeatedly trusted them on various projects. Likewise, the industry for which F&G has made a name for itself is the agri-food industry. Indeed, F&G has affirmed its expertise in the field, and can offer services such as the construction of an agri-food building or a factory as well as renovation or expansion work. The company has the necessary know-how and training to carry out these projects in sterile and efficient environments. Business Development Manager, Stéphane Desmarais, explains: “Our philosophy is to carry out our work in operational factories without affecting daily production”.
F&G also stands out for its adherence to the most stringent regulatory requirements. The company carries out custom-made, high quality construction projects, while emphasizing the highest safety standards in the field (HACCP, GFSI, FQDI & SQF).
One of the founding pillars that has taken the company forward is passion. Indeed, each employee has an innate passion for construction, which only reinforces the company’s determination towards its objective of success and loyalty. F&G employees are, in fact, its best ambassadors.
The company’s philosophy towards its customers is not to aim for a one-time project. It is based on a long-term relationship with customers, reinforced by a strong human relationship, successful project delivery and outstanding after-sales service. Frare & Gallant’s success is based on its values, its ability to understand its customers’ needs and its desire to see beyond them. All these ideas can only be supported by a strong organizational culture. Indeed, F&G’s founders are proud of the respectful, family-like environment they have created and managed preserved throughout their continuous growth. “There’s really a great atmosphere, it’s very nice to come in on Monday morning and see the team again,” said Luc Cusson, Partner and Vice President of Business Development.
Happy workers are at the heart of F&G’s success. “Over the past five years, Frare & Gallant’s turnover and team have doubled,” concludes John Frare with a smile. “We’re going to keep outdoing ourselves and taking our customers further!”
