Transport Inter-Nord was founded by Louis McLaughlin. It all started in the family garage. From the outset, Louis’s sons Dave and Steve were part of the venture.
As the business grew, the time came to move from the family garage into a larger space, a 3,000 square foot building located at 868 Alfred Viau in Saint-Jérôme.
With the company’s clientele diversifying and its needs growing, the company embarked on an expansion project to effectively double its surface area.
Still growing, Transport Inter-Nord moved into a 12,000 square foot space from which to manage operations.
The company’s 14th anniversary marked an important turning point. To remain independent and provide its customers with uninterrupted service, the company invested in the construction of a separate garage next to the main building and recruited its own team of mechanics.
A third generation of family members joined the venture with Steve McLaughlin’s son Kevin coming on board as dispatcher.
Still in full expansion mode, in response to its customers’ growing needs, the company moved into a 30,000 square foot building located at 455 Lajeunesse Boulevard in Saint-Jérôme.
The arrival of Steve McLaughlin’s daughter Mélissa, who took on the role of administrative director, completed the picture for the family business. In the six months leading up to Louis McLaughlin’s retirement, three generations of family members worked hand in hand, never losing sight of their customers’ needs.
Another expansion project took place that year, increasing the space dedicated to the company’s operations to 60,000 square feet, which allowed for the addition of warehousing services. The acquisition of one million square feet of adjacent land completed the expansion.
Transport Inter-Nord celebrated its 30th anniversary. With three decades of expertise and the contribution of more than 160 employees running its 260-unit fleet, the family business continues to serve more than 625 cities across Quebec without intermediaries.
