About Industrial Solutions

1975 – 2002
André Bertrand begins his career in the bearing and power transmission industry in 1975. By 2002, he is vice-president of a multi-branch distributing company.

On April 1st, Industrial Solutions starts its operations at 850 Industrial Avenue in Ottawa. Two former colleagues, André Gingras and Denis Bard, join André Bertrand to form the best and most experienced team in town.

After tremendous growth, in November, Industrial Solutions moves to a larger location at 830 Industrial Avenue, and the added space allows us to better showcase our products.

The team now consists of seven employees and sales grow by more than 40%.

An expansion of our existing location begins in July and is completed by October. This expansion allows us to more than double our showroom space and to increase our warehouse and office area to better serve our customers.

On February 1st, Industrial Solutions is acquired by Ficodis.

Our management team is thrilled to join the group and looks forward to actively grow our sales of existing products and to take on the challenge of promoting new product lines

Throughout the years, Industrial Solutions has continued to prosper and now have a total of ten dedicated employees and its philosophy remains the same.

A dedicated team that offers personalized service and technical support, all the while ensuring that we have stock on hand when you need it.

It's been a winning formula from day 1 and will continue to be our vision for many years going forward.

During this challenging time, Industrial Solutions is focus on supporting our customers, our employees and the local communities in which we operate.

We have successfully worked to avoid disruptions caused by COVID-19 coronavirus, and we continue to offer you the same service you’ve always come to expect with a few simple rules to respect the Public Health guidelines and keep everyone safe.

We ask that you wear a mask before entering our facility, sanitize your hands upon entering, and respect the 2m (6ft) distancing that is clearly marked on the floor.  Respecting these simple rules will ensure everyone remains safe.

Our operating hours remain 8am to 5pm Mon-Fri.

We will continue to closely monitor and assess the evolving situation and will be diligent about communicating on important issues
