Peintures PMS : The experts in industrial paint!

PEINTURES P.M.S. was founded in 1983 by Paul and Marc Chantal. At that time the two brothers were working in the field of automotive and commercial paint. Both of them realized that painters were often left to fend for themselves when settling technical painting problems. No training was given at that time by manufacturers. Paul and Marc Chantal founded PEINTURES P.M.S. for the specific purpose of meeting the needs in training and technical support of customers using automotive and commercial paints.

In furthering this intention, in 1986 PEINTURES P.M.S. opened the first private training center. Even before other manufacturers did so, they had a large number of trainers travel throughout Quebec to help painters develop or refine their techniques. They also promoted high quality products.

Over the years, PEINTURES P.M.S. developed a faithful clientele, which among others included the ABB BOMEM Company in Quebec City, which ordered from PEINTURES P.M.S. the paint used on the Canadarm in 1990.

With the death of Paul Chantal in 1993, Marc Chantal has shouldered company administrative duties alone while ensuring that his staff is aware of the spirit and objectives which were at the very heart of the company when it was founded.

To offer even better service to its customers who are located throughout Quebec, PEINTURES P.M.S. opened a branch in Montreal in 1995. That was the year in which Prévost Car became a new customer.

n 1996, the head office in Quebec City was relocated in ultramodern premises, work units were restructured, a sophisticated ventilation system was installed and additional equipment was purchased. It was also in 1996 that the PEINTURES P.M.S. trainers obtained status under the Quebec legislation entitled An Act to promote workforce skills development and recognition.

Many challenges had to be met in 1997‐1998, including the application of ISO 9001 in Quebec City and Montreal and the quest to make environmental solutions available for customers. PEINTURES P.M.S. was just soaring, even receiving an order to develop the colours for President Bill Clinton’s next bus!

In 1999, PEINTURES P.M.S. developed its website and published an attractive corporate brochure for its English and French speaking customers. It joined the “Regroupement des chefs d’entreprises du Québec” [Quebec Association of Business Leaders] and became involved in innovative design projects for Prévost Car, a customer of international scope.

In 2000, PEINTURES P.M.S Italian LECHLER products were also added. By concluding new partnerships, PEINTURES P.M.S. enhanced its competitiveness in the industrial paint market by offering a more varied line up of products without withdrawing from the commercial paint market.

Since 2001 and up to now we have diversified our range of industrial paints in various fields, such as doors and windows, garage doors, waste containers, surveillance camera bodies, sports equipment, truck boxes (province of Quebec and Quebec City heavy equipment fleets), publicity signage, plastics industry, etc. In addition, we now have several paint distributors in various regions who sell our quality Lechler products!

In December 2011, PEINTURES P.M.S. moved into its new location, freshly built in St‐Augustin‐de‐Desmaures. The acquisition of 101,000 square feet of land with a building of 12,700 square feet is meant the cutting edge of technology and to do this, there are others in place between a paint room “down draft”, a training centre, a laboratory and a research and development department colorimetry allowing PEINTURES P.M.S. to demonstrate and develop the infinite colors on all substrates that customers would need to be validated to ensure the results of appropriate quality, and all under one roof!

On the occasion of its 30th anniversary in 2013, PEINTURES P.M.S. inaugurates their building in St‐Augustin‐de‐Desmaures with an ” open door” event where we found our main business partner, LECHLER COATING, and the guests of honor such as the mayor of St‐Augustin‐de ‐Desmaures, customers, distributors and employees; in short, all those who make PEINTURES P.M.S. what it is now; that is to say, a company focused on quality, innovation and people around it.

In a spirit of continuity and new challenges, PEINTURES P.M.S. has the objective to introduce new water technology products and thus develop new industrial coatings markets. These new technologies of water‐based products are designed to significantly reduce volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and protect the environment while ensuring consistency there, sustainability and the quality of finished products in time…

In August 2017, Peintures P.M.S. is working to introduce a new complete high quality water based industrial paint created for wood, recognized to be low VOC and good for the environment. This complementary product line is the result of a partnership with Zobel in Germany. Peintures P.M.S. is very proud to offer a new wood water based industrial and commercial paint and enhance its competitiveness in the industrial paint market.
