A 100% technical path
General manager of the firm Gastier back then, Sylvain Pelletier founded Métier Plus in 1993. With electrical engineering background, Sylvain began Métier Plus history in partnership with the shareholders of the firm.
Initially, the sole purpose of Métier Plus was to fill the needs of workers, outside of the construction collective agreements, for the customers of Gastier. Recruitment service covered manual jobs (electrician, plumber, mechanic, etc.) as well as support staff (buyer, estimator, coordinator, etc.).
Métier Plus started off strong with big partners, including Merck Frosst, Kraft and Pratt & Whitney. Thanks to a strong expertise in the technical trades, Métier Plus team helped industry leaders with their temporary and permanent recruitment needs.
In order to support the construction sector, Métier Plus also operates the Métier Plus Construction division. The team can respond to recruitment requests in both construction and non-construction sectors.
Over the years, Métier Plus cumulate several major mandates, always in relation with technical professions, such as:
- Providing workers in Alberta for the oil sands and paper industry
- Temporary mandates over several months of rotating shifts for Saskatchewan’s mining sector
- Providing workers and supervising factories dismantling such as Edgewell
With all the experience gained from these various mandates, Métier Plus became the specialist in technical trades and a partner of choice.
A family story
Over the years, Sylvain bought the shares of his partners and became the sole shareholder.
In 2008, Métier Plus welcomed a second shareholder, Roxane Dumais-Pelletier. In the summer of 2008, Roxane began her career as a recruitment assistant and then as a talent acquisition specialist. Then, she began a full-time position as a special projects manager and became the director of operations in 2014. With studies completed at the Montreal HEC, in addition to the Emergence Program G3 of Beauce’s (Qc) Entrepreneurship, Roxane became a dynamic leader. She is now the Executive Director of Métier Plus since 2017.
Since 1993, the family business has been growing steadily. Increased investments over the years helped hire additional personnel for the operations, addition and enhancement of computer software and hardware, and the development of a new website. Métier Plus has also opened a second office in Saint-Laurent to support the local market and serve Anglophone candidates from the West end of Montreal.
