Techno Metal Post would like to introduce another new dealer to the Techno Metal Post family: Michael Pelletier is opening up Techno Metal Post Kamloops, in British Columbia. Originally from the region of Thetford Mines, Michael has been in western Canada for ten years, working in the field of construction. Last year he decided it was time to start his own business.
Michael said he had always known about Techno Metal Post but had never really investigated what it was all about. It was his long-time school friend, and fellow “Thetfordois”, Steve Langlois (Techno Metal Post Calgary), who piqued his interest in Techno Metal Post. After a few conversations about what Steve was doing, Michael became “more intrigued” with Techno Metal Post, and Steve invited him out to a work site. From that point on, Michael said he knew becoming a Techno Metal Post dealer was what he wanted to do. Last summer, he worked and apprenticed with Christian Rousseau (Techno Metal Post Alberta) and completed his training in Thetford Mines this past December.
Michael said he had a “great week of learning and meeting new people” while training with us. “I admire the devotion of the whole Techno Metal Post team towards their dealers.” He appreciated the opportunity to experience the “whole company…to see the whole distribution of the product and the productivity of each department. Michael also enjoyed “every moment of social gathering when meal time came and having those little moments of interaction between dealers and Techno Metal Post staff.” He believes this is key in helping build a dealer’s confidence “towards the whole team and production of Techno Metal Post.” While acknowledging the helical pile industry, Michael feels Techno Metal Post “has it all” in comparison to other competitors – from the specialized installation equipment, to all the different Techno Metal Post departments and teams, to the competitive pricing.
With his heart set on establishing a Techno Metal Post dealership in Kamloops, Michael is heading to beautiful British Columbia this winter. After 10 years of living and working in Calgary, he is uprooting and going to build, not only a new business, but a new life as well. And although Michael will continue to make his home in western Canada, he says he manages to return home to his family and community in Inverness, Quebec, Canada several times a year. Now he says, “I am looking forward to a better future now that I own my dealership. Hopefully this will take me to a whole new level to push my skills and knowledge to a superior degree, which is already happening. I will some day end up being a successful business man.”
