Outillage Industriel de l'Est (1987) Inc. serving industries for more than 20 years.

In July 1987, 3 former employees of TRW Inc grouped their efforts together and purchased Outillage Industriel de l'Est.


The original team was then made up of Gilles Létourneau, director TRW industrial Div. (MRC bearings, J.H. Williams hand tools) Kirk Weinmaster assistant director and Yvan Lebuis regional manager.

The new administration decided to keep the same direction as its predecessors, concentrating their efforts on metal working industries and keeping the refineries located nearby as their target customers.
