Bruno Prudâ€™homme, owner of Carrosserie Prudâ€™homme, is not new to the western part of Laval. Not only is it his place of birth and where he chose to raise a family of his own, but at the age of 22, Prud'homme started working at the collision repair facility he now owns.
â€œMy wife and I have long dreamed of starting our own family business. So, when the shop was put for sale, we didnâ€™t hesitate one second to jump on the occasion,â€ says Prudâ€™homme.
That was in 2005. Today, in addition to being associates, Prudâ€™homme and his wife, Louise Larouche, are pleased to count their two sons among their workforce.
â€œOne is a painter and the other, an estimator. It is a true opportunity and a great pleasure for us to work together,â€ he says.
â€œCarrosserie Prudâ€™homme is just like us. They have a strong family spirit,â€ says Mario Verret, Director of Business Development at Carrossier ProColor. â€œTheir workshop is impeccable and we are thrilled that they have chosen to join our network.â€
While Louise Larouche is in charge of customer service and accounting, her husband manages the workshop.
â€œBeing the owner of a collision repair centre doesnâ€™t only consist of repairing vehicles,â€ he explains, â€œIt also means taking care of the customers, making sure they are happy so that they return and recommend us to others.â€
Prud'homme and Larouche say they're very satisfied with their choice to join the network.
â€œWe can feel the strength of the network. There is a real sense of family,â€ says Prud'homme. â€œEveryone is proud to be a Carrossier ProColor. Also, we can easily stay in contact with other owners. We feel less alone.â€
