Richard Poirier et Frères Électrique, known today as RPF Electrical, opened for business in 1980 when three brothers from Sayabec – Richard, Mario and Gervais Poirier – decided to join forces. In 1984, their brother Alain Poirier joined the team.
For the first twenty years, the company grew as a family business, bringing a friendly human touch to every project it undertook.
In 2002, the Poirier brothers passed the torch to the next generation. Cousins Marc and Jasmin Poirier, sons of two of the founders, took over leadership of the company along with Jean-Pierre Bouillon, who served as president until 2006, when Marc and Jasmin acquired his stake in the business.
Between 2012 and 2016, RPF Electrical consolidated its position in eastern Québec. To keep in close contact with its clientele, RPF opened offices in Rimouski, Mont-Joli, Amqui, Sept-Îles, Fermont and Labrador City. Then the company becomes a major player capable of meeting the greatest challenges in the very large industry, particularly metallurgical, mining, manufacturing and forestry.
The company proudly celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2020. Over the years since 1980, RPF Electrical has positioned itself by daring and determination as the main supplier of electrical services in eastern Quebec.
Today, RPF’s experienced team includes 25 office employees and more than 100 electricians on the ground in the Lower St. Lawrence, Gaspé peninsula and North Shore of Québec, as well as in Newfoundland and Labrador and New Brunswick.
