History

In 1979, at the age of 29, Michel Blais and two investment partners started BMH Systems in St-Leonard, a community in Montreal’s east end. He could have never predicted, at that age, that his Quebec-based company would go on to ship and build concrete batch plants more than halfway around the world.

The company is, since 1990, headquartered in Boucherville, on the south shore of the greater Montreal region — just across the St. Lawrence River from where he first set up BMH Systems. With over 35 years of experience now, the corporation has proven itself in the concrete industry. Complex projects are very stimulating for BMH's workforces and their will to meet challenges became their key to success through time.
