Acquisition of Prochute Sécurité by SPI Health and Safety


SPI Health and Safety Inc., Canadian leader offering solutions, services and products related to occupational health and safety, announced the acquisition of Prochute Sécurité Inc., a Quebec company based in St. Lambert dedicated to protecting workers against risks of working at heights. This acquisition will help to maintain some fifteen specialized jobs in Quebec and to foster the national development of this business unit.

For more than 17 years, Prochute has specialized in the inspection, assessment, design and installation of innovative systems for increasing the protection of workers. In addition to offering its expertise through specialized training adapted to their customers, Prochute is widely established in Canada, thanks to its distinctive and ingenious designs. Prochute is proving to be the single most valuable partner for companies that value the health and safety of their workers in compliance with laws and regulations. Furthermore, its multiple patents represent a distinct competitive advantage for this leading-edge company.

“Our partnership with SPI represents a wise continuity to the vision of growth of Prochute,” declares Mrs. Annie Chantelois, president of Prochute Sécurité and voting member of the CSAZ259 Technical Committee since 2002.

“From our beginnings, we have been privileged to have dedicated employees committed to the cause. These same fundamental values are also shared by the SPI team,” affirms Mr. Georges Bégin, vice-president of Prochute Sécurité.

An impressive portfolio of innovative achievements

The ability of the Prochute team to design, conceptualize, integrate and innovate is making this company an exceptional player on the market. Some of its multiple accomplishments have recently included the conception of a training center unique in North America that allows indoor training within a 46-foot high space. The wood frame structure with arched walkways is certainly an innovation that sets the company apart from the competition.

Despite the complexity of these projects, the Prochute experts have constantly distinguished themselves by their professionalism, creativity and commitment.

‘‘Reputable, strong and managed by experts in fall protection, Prochute is a strategic choice for strengthening our position. We are proud of adding this solution to our service offering" said Robert Courteau, President and Chief Executive Officer of SPI Health and Safety.
