In 1958, Mr. GERALD CHEVRIER, 5th generation landowner, founded his sand quarrying company on the grounds of the family farm on rang St-François in the small municipality of St-Lazare.
From the very start he began, through the acquisition of motorized equipment, to transform the largely unmechanized quarrying techniques of his father into a much more efficient operation. In spite of the richness of the sand layer, these efforts were required to ensure the survival of the business as large construction projects were rare and there were several other sand pits operating in the region.
Over the years, modernization of the operation has continued. But while the quarrying techniques have changed, the determination to provide quality service and products, while respecting environmental considerations, has remained the same.
The year 2018 marks the 60th anniversary of SABLIÈRES CHEVRIER. The family (Solange, Sylvie, Gilbert, Christian and Stephane) invites you to watch the souvenir videos :
