CFR Group began back in 1997. Our current president started a business called Atelier Mario Langlois. The following year, he incorporated under the name CFR Dorchester. The name came from the owner’s vision of the company’s activities, taken from the French “la conception, la fabrication et la robotique”. (design, manufacturing and robotics).
The company, located in Sainte-Claire in the former Dorchester County, now Chaudière-Appalaches, has evolved dynamically over the years. Since the beginning we have been constantly acquiring new expertise as the industry has evolved. In the 2000’s, two new businesses were created: CFR Control and CFR Assainissement. Then, in 2012, the three companies were consolidated and merged under the name CFR inc.
A NEW CHAPTER
A new chapter is now being written in our history. Samuel Langlois, the son of Mario Langlois, grew up surrounded by the company and has been working here full time since 2017. He has plans to work with his team in order to develop CFR into a thorougly modern company, while respecting the values put in place by his father.
