Our story
From modest beginnings, Drillmex has become one of the leading distributors of industrial cutting tools in Quebec.

In 1982, Ghislain Veuilleux was working as a representative for a tool company when the company closed its doors. He decided to start his own company, Drillmex Ltd, which he ran out of the basement of his home in McMasterville, Quebec. In 1984, he hired his first employee, Paul Ostiguy, who had just obtained his machinist certificate.
The company grew quickly and, in 1986, Mr. Veuilleux took on additional staff and moved the company out of his home to another building in McMasterville. In 1990, Mr. Veuilleux decided to move the company to a larger building in Ste-Julie. The NiagaraAmec and Horn product lines were added to the company’s product catalogue, which already offered the Sumitomo line.
In 2005, Mr. Veuilleux decided to retire and sell the company to Paul Ostiguy and his brother Christian, who had worked for Amec.

Taking the big leap

February 1, 2005, the Ostiguy brothers became the new owners of Drillmex. The company continued to grow over the years, notably by adding the Seco product line to its offering. In November 2008, Drillmex moved once again, this time to a spacious 10,000 sq-ft building on in Ste-Julie.

June 1, 2013, Drillmex acquired Outiltech Orléans, an important distributor in the Quebec City area for over 21 years. While the company continues to operate independently, its purchase has allowed Drillmex to increase its market coverage throughout the province of Quebec.
