Growing On Side Restoration’s Reach in Quebec: Acquisition of Soluxe

Québec City, QC

On Side Restoration Services is pleased to announce the completion of the Soluxe acquisition that took place on November 2nd, 2019.

Emmanuel Robitaille, Regional Director, Québec shared, “Soluxe, led by Manuel Martineau, has a very strong team with a great reputation within the emergency property restoration sector. We’re very excited to welcome them to our On Side family!”

Original Soluxe owner, now Québec City Branch Manager, Manuel Martineau was not actively searching for buyers of his successful emergency property restoration business. Since 2016 he watched the industry shifting away from merely a transaction-based environment toward a full customer-solutions focus. He knew that he and his team had to either lead the way or keep up to ensure longevity of his team and company. Seeing On Side make inroads in Québec, Manuel came to identify the same qualities that he esteemed at his own firm. “As an individual personally dedicated to performance improvements and customer service, I was excited to discover a firm who was so impressively aligned with my own values.”

Manuel has 16 years in the emergency property restoration industry and holds his IICRC training for WRT 101-201 and 301. FSRT, ASDT, OCT, Asbestos management training and duct cleaning certification (NADCA). He also has the full RBQ license (for new residential and commercial buildings) as well as a carpenter journeyman certification with CCQ. Given back is also an important part of Manuel’s business philosophy and has served as a certified mentor with Mentorat Québec for business management.

Restauration On Side, as the company is known within the province of Québec, will continue to operate from Soluxes’s office, then relocate to a new larger central location on December 2nd. Their new address will be at 2580 avenue Dalton, Québec City, and features a total of 9,000 square feet, including 2,500 square feet of office space.

This Québec City location is On Side’s third branch that’s opened within the province of Québec. More provincial branch openings are planned to take place over the next seven months which include Gatineau in January 2020, as well as Montreal’s South and North Shores, later in the year.
