In the heart of South West Montreal, Centre de toitures B & S Ltée. officially began operation in 1983 when its founder, Murphy Savoie, decided to leave his roofer career to start distributing roofing products.
He observed some difficulty to source himself, hence the idea to combine several products under one roof.
At the time, the former local car wash already served deposit products and it cost $ 1,000 per month for rent.
In no time, space becomes so tight; it was sometimes difficult to move inside. A metal cutter, installed near the main window on Notre Dame St became an attraction.
Quickly the small back yard is overflowing with products and goods and it became necessary to expand to meet the demands of the roofers who were coming increasingly to obtain shingles and other tools needed for their projects.
Then in 1996, after several years of research and development, Les Produits Murphco Ltée a company that produces various models of copper drains became a sister company. It is also experiencing a shining success thanks to the metal transformation into large-scale sheet..
Today, the Centre de toitures B & S Ltée has a start of the art workshop and a fleet of modern trucks. It offer its customers large recognized brands such as Soprema, BP and Firestone. The company offers the transformation of sheet metal.
Now looking into the future, Centre de toitures B & S Ltée remains a leader in terms of new products and customer experience.
