Company history and timeline
QMD was founded in 2006 when Luc Quenneville, a renowned Construction Manager, and Jean Morissette, a seasoned Chief Estimator, decided to join forces and work together to raise quality standards in the construction industry. With an exceptional reputation and prestigious achievements under their belts, they have surrounded themselves with highly qualified professionals, which has allowed QMD to become one of the largest construction companies in Quebec.
From the outset, QMD has grown rapidly. In a few short months, the company went from 4 to 10 employees and now employs almost 100. QMD’s rapid success is due to its values, which the company’s staff have always respected. Luc Quenneville and Jean Morissette have a shared vision: always prioritize quality, be adaptable and listen. They also share a business model which is based on creating and maintaining long-lasting partnerships with clients, suppliers, specialized contractors and employees. They have done exactly this for the past 10 years.
