A FAMILY BUSINESS
In the late 70s, Réal Grondin (Founder), an experienced truck driver from the Drummondville area, acquires a transportation permit and his own fleet of trucks. A visionary, he then embarks on a wonderful adventure with his wife, Muriel Cormier. Danaca Transport is born!
In 1986, the steel industry experiences a significant slowdown. Nevertheless, Danaca Transport's management team can't be defeated. They decide to create a new company, Danaca Transport Montréal, diversifying its markets, while continuing to serve the steel sectors.
A STRATEGIC MOVE
In 1990, Danaca Transport Montréal moves to the Greater Montreal area of Longueuil to increase its services and clientele. With this repositioning, the company experiences new growth and establishes itself as a leader in the transportation of steel and construction materials in Quebec.
Following the move, the company quickly achieves great success with a steel mill clientele, delighted to receive such attentive, fast and reliable service. The success is such that Danaca Transport must increase its staff and fleet, going from 6 units to more than 100 in just 10 years!
