“This latest acquisition consolidates our position of strength in the Atlantic market with a broader supplier base and new customers,” said Luc Rodier, Guillevin’s president & CEO. “I am thankful to Ann McLoughlan, former owner and president of McLoughlan, for the confidence she has placed in us, and for her help in the company’s transition.”
Founded in 1956 by James McLoughlan, the company has been under his daughter’s leadership for the past 30 years.
Today, McLoughlan Supplies has branches in Newfoundland & Labrador (3), Nova Scotia (2), and Prince Edward Island (1).
Guillevin says the company will continue to operate under the McLoughlan name, under the leadership of the newly appointed general manager, Cory MacGuigan. Cory was formerly the general manager of the Charlottetown branch. All jobs will be maintained under the new ownership.
Founded in Montreal in 1906, Guillevin is a distributor of electrical equipment, as well as safety products and equipment, and industrial supplies.
