Celebrating 30 years of history

April 1st 2019

The history of Moules Industriels began in 1989, preceded by 5 years at Modelage Mécanique. Seeing the growing demand for mold manufacturing in the automotive sealing sector, the co-founders, Francine Guay and Claude Houle, embarked on this adventure.


Nobody suspected that their business would have changed so much in 30 years:

  • Expansion by the creation of a complementary MI Plastech entity in Sherbrooke for injection, as well as the development of two “sister” factories in Mexico;
  • Innovation through research and development and the creation of MI RobotiX and MI Lab (two of our patents pending were accepted in 2018)
  • Increase from 5 employees to 350 at four sites in North America;
  • Serve clients and collaborate with partners in America, China and Europe;
  • Handed off the presidency to their son Vincent Houle.

Awards and recognitions

In recent years, the family business has received numerous awards for innovation, health and safety at work and entrepreneurship.

In fact, 2019 is another big year; we are proud to announce that MI Integration has re-qualified for a fourth consecutive year as one of Deloitte’s Canada’s Best Managed Companies. You can find us in the Gold Standard winners. Moreover, we are a finalist of ”Les Mercuriades” in 2 different categories:

We receive these recognitions as an encouragement to put all our efforts to constantly improve ourselves!
