History

1971

The C-I-L company, involved in the manufacture and distribution of fertilizers in Eastern Canada, builds a plant in Saint-Pie-de-Bagot in order to move closer to its clientele, which was previously served by the Saint-Hyacinthe plant. This new plant, first managed from Saint-Hyacinthe, quickly becomes self-sufficient and joins the vast Agrocentre network.

1982

In the early 1980s, C-I-L created businesses in partnership with the sites it owned in Eastern Canada. It was in 1982 that Jacques Blouin joined the new entity that became Agrocentre Saint-Pie Inc.


1985

The company builds a new plant in Saint-Valérien-de-Milton to better serve its clients, which are increasingly focused on corn production, with the introduction of earlier hybrids on the market.

1989

C-I-L decides to withdraw from the agricultural market and sells all of its Agrocentre network shares to La Coop fédérée (then known as Coopérative fédérée de Québec). This new partnership gives the network access to the expertise of a major company in Quebec’s agricultural sector. 

2010

Stéphane Chaume, Agr., becomes an equal shareholder with La Coop Fédérée.

Today

Today, Agrocentre Saint-Pie Inc. has a team of professionals that include agronomists, qualified agricultural technologists and experienced employees in agricultural production, maintenance and administration. All offer excellent customer service and maintain privileged relations with suppliers.


Management

Stéphane Chaume, Agr., the company’s president, has been involved in agriculture from a very young age. He helped on the family farm as he was growing up and became a shareholder at the age of 18. After graduating from the agri-food technology institute (ITA) in St-Hyacinthe, he obtained a Bachelor of Agricultural Economics from McGill University. While continuing to participate on the farm, he first worked as an agronomist for Quebec at Syngenta Seeds, before becoming director of sales at the Agrocentre Saint-Pie in 2005. A farmer himself, he focuses on the practical, and understands the realities faced by today’s agricultural producers.
 

Michel Gadbois, Agr., Director of Administration and Production, was also raised on a farm. Holder of a Bachelor of Agricultural Economics from McGill University, he has worked for the Agrocentre network for over 30 years. An Agrocentre St-Hyacinthe shareholder for several years, he has shared his vast experience with the Agrocentre St-Pie since 2003.

Our Services

It also offers a line of high-performance, top-quality seeds (corn, soybean, grain and forage) from Syngenta, Croplan, Prograin, Hyland, Semican and SQS. Thanks to our partners, we provide a full range of related services, such as the custom application of lime, fertilizers and plant protection products, soil sampling, GPS-based application and the production of agro-environmental fertilization plans (PAEF). The company has an impressive fleet of trucks specialized in bulk transportation, including bulk seeds and liquids. Offering our clients the best possible service is part of our business culture.
