Groupe Meridian is now Restauration On Side (Qué.) Ltée.

Montréal, QUÉBEC

On Side Restoration has expanded its reach yet again in Eastern Canada, this time in a completely new province with the acquisition of Groupe Meridian, a Québec-based restoration company.

“We’re very pleased to announce the purchase of Groupe Meridian,” stated Craig Hogarth, President and CEO, On Side Restoration. “Quebec is of course a completely new market for us and with it will come new lessons to be learned. However we will start in Montréal and expand in the province as quickly and effectively as we can to best offer the national presence that our customers are demanding.”

Amandio Contreiras, COO, On Side Restoration, also commented that “Our Company is very happy to have come across Groupe Meridian in our search to launch in Quebec. Our staff and management philosophies are similar and we look forward to transitioning their team into the On Side fold this month.”

Principal, Kerry Kelly of Groupe Meridian, is also pleased and ready to embrace this change for her firm, “Myself and Robert Ierfino, our director of Operations, have been open to an opportunity like this for the past couple of years. We’re delighted that we’ve found a company like On Side that we feel is a good fit for our staff and the long-term growth of Groupe Meridian’s evolving legacy within restoration.”

On Side Restoration’s Quebec Company is legally known as Restauration On Side (Qué.) Ltée.
