History of Stena: A little bit about who we are…
In 1989, Jacques Therrien started Stena Construction. Working out of his home office, the company initially offered project management and site supervision services. In 1993, after having gained a reputation for being hardworking and committed to excellence, he was offered a project for a new big box retailer entering Canada. Stena’s successful and skilled completion of this major project marked the start of a professional relationship that is still strong to this day.
In 1995, Jacques was asked to build some commercial cabinets for a client and, after, accepting the job decided it was time to rent out a 6000 sq.ft. millwork shop to carry out the work. With this project Les Industries Stena was created, and within the first year, it was evident that the current millwork shop was not large enough, and the company moved to a 16,000 sq.ft. space.
In 1998, the company moved once more and began working out of a 24,000 sq.ft space and had become a full-fledged family business, with Jacques, his wife, his brother and his son all working together at Stena.
2001 marked a massive milestone for the company when a piece of land was purchased and construction on Stena’s new home began. By 2002, the 40,000 sq.ft facility was complete and now housed both Stena Construction and Les Industries Stena. Throughout the next few years, the companies continued to grow and now offered construction and millwork services along with warehouse facilities.
Today, we are still located in the very same facility built in 2002. While the company has expanded tremendously and many new members have joined the team, the core values of Stena have remained the same continue and to flourish. We are a family-oriented company that values our employees, suppliers and customers. Groupe Stena is a team of skilled professionals that continue to provide quality service and products to all our customers across Canada.
