Located in the greater Estrie region, and more precisely near Sherbrooke, since 1976, Les Soudures St-Denis and M.E. 2000 specialize in the manufacturing and installation of steel structures for the industrial, commercial, institutional, and residential markets.


A related specialty of the company consists of the creation, installation, maintenance, and preventive upkeep of lifting devices. These services are offered to our clients across the province of Quebec.

Since the company’s creation, Les Soudure St-Denis has been able to positively evolve through regular renewal of its production equipment, qualification and upkeep for its CSA W47.1 div.2 accreditation from the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB), and the hiring of employees who are qualified and concerned about offering clients a quality product. Combined, these elements have resulted in consistent annual growth which would not have been possible without the trust and respect we have developed with our clients and suppliers throughout the years.

To attain and maintain this corporate vision, excellent collaboration with partnering suppliers has been essential. Les Soudures St-Denis and M.E. 2000 are proud of their reputation, as it is one that ensures the maintenance of this kind of trust.

Les Soudures St-Denis offers a high production capacity as a result of its three factories (all located near Sherbrooke, and in proximity of major highways). These factories offer a total surface area of 50 000 square feet.

A highly motivated team of 70 employees – including management, project managers, engineers, evaluators, drawing department, administrative personnel, production personnel, and structural steel assemblers – contributes to the success of Les Soudures St-Denis and M.E. 2000. It is thanks to this team that the companies are considered uncontested leaders in the Estrie, Centre-du-Québec, Outaouais, Lanaudière, and Montérégie administrative regions.


Luc De Lafontaine
Réal Côté

Founding President

In 1976, Réal Côté quit his job to start his own welding business, backed by training in the field and great determination.

The company was incorporated shortly thereafter, in 1982. A persistent visionary, Mr. Côté invested himself completely in his business. He gave generously of both his finances and his time, sacrifices which have resulted in the company’s continuous growth.

Luc De Lafontaine

Director General

Present at the time of the company’s founding, Luc De Lafontaine efficiently assists the founding president. His extensive experience with factory production processes made him an ideal candidate for the role of director general in the 1990s. He completed DAO/CAO trainings, which enabled him to found a complete steel structure design department.


Production Manager

Dany Côté, son of the founding president, joined the management team in 1993, following college training in the field of electronics. Having grown up around the shop, Dany possesses a great deal of experience with the functioning of the shop and the production equipment.


Administrative Manager

With more than 10 years of experience in the field of administration, Rachel Bergeron joined Les Soudures St-Denis in 1987. As the Administrative Manager, she is responsible for the management of the company’s finances and human resources, as well as the supervision and organization of the administrative team.



Claude Côté is the brother of the founding president. He has been part of the company since 1981, and his experience in various positions and at various stages of production, combined with his integrity and his human resource management skills, ensure project implementation that respects deadlines.
