Our History

During the 19th century, some models of evaporators are used to produce maple syrup without however being very effective. It is only in 1882, in Ohio, United States, that Gustave Henry Grimm develops an evaporator more adapted. This one proposes a greater surface of evaporation and thus an optimal efficiency. The business was profitable for Grimm who founded G.H. Grimm Manufacturing. He was also selling various other products and equipments for the maple syrup production. (Read full article)

A few years later, Grimm’s cousins settle in Quebec in order to develop the flourishing market of maple sugaring. They settle in Montreal and manufacture maple sugaring equipment in a small factory on McGill street named Grimm Co. The business works well during more than fifty years then their successors moved the family company in a new building on Lachine Road.

During the same period, in the town of Waterloo, Messrs Lebrun and Lussier also manufacture evaporators. Around 1940, Mr Lebrun decides to launch his own trade and comes to Montreal to establish his company on De Lorimier street, beside the Jacques-Cartier bridge, under the trade name Dominion Evaporator.

In 1952, Mr Lebrun, owner of Dominion Evaporator, bought the name of Grimm Co and their inventory in order to increase his business and to propose to the customers a wider range of products. The company is incorporated in the year 1953 and became DOMINION & GRIMM Inc.

Ten years later, Dominion & Grimm Inc changed of owner when Mr Boileau purchased the company. In July 1966 the company moved in its current offices and factory on Marconi street, in the industrial park of Ville d’Anjou.

The business is rapidly growing then in 1984 when Mr Boileau died, his daughter Johanne Boileau and Mr Marcel Pepin who managed the business since the purchase in 1962 repurchase Dominion & Grimm. The Pepin’s Family is now the unique owner of the company.

Dominion & Grimm Inc took a lot of expansion since its beginning, thanks to its corporate stores located in several cities and villages in Quebec and in other provinces as well as in the United States, and also the efforts of the authorized dealers.
