Our mission

Since 1946, we have been building major projects in the commercial, industrial, institutional and civil engineering sectors. Building high quality buildings, serving citizens: that’s what we hold dear!

Our vision

A well-established construction leader in Lanaudière, Malo is a growing company. In order to further increase its efficiency and productivity, we will vertically integrate its activities. Thus, over the next five years, we will be able to double its turnover and its geographic reach. But this ambitious expansion plan cannot be achieved at the expense of our top priority: delivering quality turnkey projects on time and on budget.

Our values

Yesterday as today, our code of professional conduct is governed by values that are dear to us.

LOYALTYWe are honest and faithful to our commitments
EFFICIENCYWe get maximum return for the efforts made.
PRESENCEOur teams are punctual, reliable and dedicated to the task.
DETERMINATIONWe are motivated and persevering, and aim to surpass your expectations.
EQUITYWe are fair and impartial.
RESPECTWe pay attention to others and treat them with respect.

A favorable reputation is forged over the years through consistent actions in line with the values in which we believe. It also stems from achievements recognized by a given community. By this definition, our reputation is doing very well!

Social responsibility

At Malo, we believe that the built landscape must be at the service of citizens. So, as entrepreneurs helping to shape communities, it has always seemed natural to us to listen to them in other ways as well. This is why we have generously supported so many events, causes and organizations for years. Here are some examples of this support, which are not exhaustive.

In the Lanaudière cultural sector, we have provided financial support to the Desjardins Cultural Center, in Joliette, the Joliette Art Museum, the Lanaudière International Festival, as well as the Joliette Christmas market.

We also honored a major financial commitment with the Esther-Blondin College, in Saint-Jacques, and supported the Foundation of the College of the Assumption and the Foundation of the Samarres, dedicated to perseverance in school.

On the Outaouais side, we favored the Fondation du Collège Nouvelles Frontières in Gatineau.

Finally, the Canadian Cancer Society and the Lanaudière Northern Health Foundation also received our donations. Attentive to local social issues, we have contributed to the fundraising efforts of Centraide Lanaudière, the Roland-Gauvreau youth shelter in Joliette, and Parrainage Civique Basses-Laurentides.

Our history

Construction and entrepreneurship have been part of our family’s DNA for five generations. From father to son, the same quest drives us: that of excellence, a guarantee of success. In a few milestones, here is our story.

1930

In the 1930s, Eugène Malo, a construction entrepreneur, taught carpentry to his son Bernard on his construction sites.

Bernard Malo settled in Joliette where, with the entrepreneur Lucien Durand, he participated in the construction of the Saint-Anselme college in Rawdon.

1938

Bernard Malo founded the company Malo & Frères with Florent and George-Étienne.

1946

Bernard Malo starts his own business: Bernard Malo Construction. He specializes in the construction of residential housing, schools and churches, especially in the Christ-Roi district of Joliette, where he resides.

De 1957 aux années 1970

The incorporation of the company under the name of Bernard Malo Inc. marks an important turning point in its history. In the years that followed, Paul and André joined their father. Then began a period marked by major projects such as the reconstruction of the Joliette Seminary (now Cégep), in 1958, and the construction of the Mauricie General Hospital, in Shawinigan, from 1968 to 1970.

Des années 1980 aux années 2000

In the late 1980s, David’s son David followed in the footsteps of his father, uncle Paul and grandfather Bernard. As a young student, he first worked for the company in the summer, as a laborer. He then held the positions of appraiser and foreman. In 1998, having obtained a Bachelor’s degree in construction engineering from the École de technologie supérieure, in Montreal, he was appointed project director, a position he held until 2005.

2005

David joins his father and uncle in the management of the company as vice-president of Bernard Malo inc.

2010

David acquires the family business. Surrounded by a solid and winning team, he develops its expertise and multiplies its success.

2020

Always flourishing, the company updates its brand image. True to the values ​​that successfully guided his father, uncle, grandfather and great-grandfather, David is implementing an ambitious expansion plan.

The future also looks promising with the succession already assured. Indeed, Olivier and Ève Malo each follow in the footsteps of their father David.
