Neopost Canada acquires Bureautique Lacouline Inc.
Markham, Ontario and Quebec City, Quebec, (June 9, 2014) – Neopost Canada, a wholly owned subsidiary of Neopost S.A., the number two worldwide supplier of mail solutions and a major player in the logistics solutions and communication field, has acquired Bureautique Lacouline Inc., its largest dealer partner in the province of Quebec.
Started in 1925 by Édouard, grandfather of current owner, Jacques, Bureautique Lacouline has earned a solid reputation and strong market share in the Quebec City region selling and servicing the full line of Neopost solutions since 1990. The key to their long-term success in a competitive and demanding marketplace is simple – build a seasoned team of professionals to ensure long-term customer loyalty by providing consistently outstanding customer service.
President and Principal Jacques Lacouline will stay on until September to provide leadership continuity and help ensure that customers receive uninterrupted service at the high level to which they have become accustomed. In a statement released last week, Lacouline said, “I want to sincerely thank our loyal customers for trusting us all these years. I would like to assure them that our service and operations will remain the same. Our name and location will not change and most importantly, our devoted employees will always be here to meet their needs.
“We warmly welcome the members of the Bureautique Lacouline team to the Neopost family,” said Lou Gizzarelli, President of Neopost Canada. “We anticipate a smooth transition and I am confident that Bureautique Lacouline will continue to flourish and grow and enjoy the success that has made it such an important Neopost partner for the past 24 years.”
