Antonio Pettigrew, already working in product distribution, decides to found Entrepôt IDÉAL Warehouse, convinced that impeccable customer service will be the cornerstone of his business.
Warehousing operations are separated from transportation operations and the names Entrepôt IDÉAL Inc. and Transport IDÉAL Inc. are created.
A second warehouse is added, bringing the total warehousing surface area to more than 100,000 square feet.
IDEAL innovates with a foray into transportation of bulk animal feed.
To respond to the relocation of industrial sectors to the suburbs of big cities, new, modern warehouses are opened. With vertical clearance of 24 feet, IDEAL warehouses offer bright, well-ventilated spaces equipped with sprinklers and hydraulic docks. Some are even served by a railway.
IDEAL offers our customers more than 140,000 square feet of well-laid out, well-equipped, secured space to accommodate storage of all types of merchandise.
Logistique IDÉAL Inc. is created and becomes a full-fledged member of the group. This company complements Transport IDÉAL Inc. and Entrepôt IDÉAL Inc., and enables us to offer complete merchandise logistics. For example, IDEAL is responsible for storing and managing semi-active documents and archives for the majority of the Government of Quebec’s ministries and governmental organizations, while enabling the development of innovative inventory management software using bar codes.
