The beginnings of BSR
Bernard Stival, Serge Vallières and Rock Jacques created Les Entrepreneurs Peintres BSR in 1981. The acronym BSR is made up of the first letters of their three individual first names.
A few years later, Serge Vallières managed his company with the help of his wife, Denise Vallières, after Bernard Stival and Rock Jacques left the company.
In 1998, Alain Turcotte joined them and made an invaluable contribution to Les Entrepreneurs Peintres BSR for 25 years, until he passed away.
En 1998, Alain Turcotte se joindra à eux et apportera un apport inestimable aux entrepreneurs peintres BSR pendant 25 ans, jusqu’à son décès.
Over the years, Serge Vallières has overseen the growth of a sizable family of more than 30 employees and completed hundreds of projects around Quebec, always putting the needs of his clients first. His business was also among the first in Quebec to climb steel beams in order to innovate with high-rise painting techniques.
Forty years after founded the BSR Painter Entrepreneurs, Serge Vallières retires on February 4, 2021, with a heart full of pride in his accomplishments.
He then passes the business on to David Lebrun, a trustworthy person who plans to take it even further.
Being a professional painter himself, David Lebrun has accumulated more than 20 years in the field of painting, in addition to being Certified as a Senior Inspector in Quality Control for industrial coatings. With expertise in project management and business development, he is constantly looking for new challenges and accomplishments to achieve. Armed with his involvement in several professional associations such as the AMPP (Association for Materials Protection and Performance) and his infallible passion for ongoing education, he is the ideal person to perpetuate the BSR adventure.
His desire to carry out certain aspirations that he had cherished for a long time led David Lebrun to acquire the company. He is now more determined than ever to add the next chapter in the history of this great family.
In his words, “Peintres BSR is a company with a truly amazing project history. After just one meeting with the founder and former owner, we had a perfect match. »
Less than a year after purchasing the business, David Lebrun changed the Peintres BSR logo and color scheme to reflect the forthcoming changes. In addition to receiving SSPC- QP1 Accreditation, the business also becomes one of the few Quebec companies to become a Corporate Member of the AMPP.
The purchase of BSR is just the start of a new chapter that will offer great potential for business development strategy in the industrial coatings domain.
