LFG Construction was awarded the “Entreprise de l’année” (business of the year) prize. It also won an award in the manufacturing, transformation, and innovation category.
And that’s not all: Claude Lapointe, owner of LFG Construction (see photo), was named personality of the year at the event.
In his speech, Mr. Lapointe stated that LFG Construction’s success depended first and foremost on its employees’ work and dedication.
Claude Lapointe was recognized not only for this qualities as a businessman, but also for his commitment to the community, especially his involvement with Fondation Santé Baie-des-Chaleurs (a foundation that raises funds for healthcare services), Maison Maguire (an agency that helps people with disabilities), and OGPAC (an organization that provides services to people with cancer in the Gaspé region).
This native of Maria, Quebec, joined LFG Construction in 1993 and became sole owner of the company in 1998. Today, he owns 9 companies and employs more than 500 people. His career has been studded with success.
“When I joined LFG, I never thought I’d get this far. I owe my success to my family, who support me and inspire me to go on,”, revealed Claude Lapointe on the podium during this wonderful event.
40 years! LFG Construction reached this milestone in August 2015. Few companies can boast such longevity, and we are proud to have achieved this milestone.
Overall, we’ve had 40 years of success. Success – and great deal of it – is what you need to perform well in such a competitive industry for 4 decades.
But along with success, there are more difficult moments that include self-doubt and even failure. The life of a company is like a person’s life: you sometimes face tough times. But, as you know, adversity makes us stronger.
Today, LFG Construction continues to grow, and we are excited by the many projects that will contribute to our growth in the decade ahead.
We took advantage of this anniversary to spruce up our image. We have unveiled our new brand image whose colours and logo reflect our dynamic approach to business.
We have also launched our new web site, which showcases our capabilities and achievements.
Our achievements would not have been possible without very worthy men and women who work with us. We owe our success to our employees – it’s as simple as that. We thank the thousands of people who have championed our values and given their all, day after day, to ensure success on our projects.
We also thank our clients for their continued trust in us… since 1975.
