It was during the exuberant early ‘90s, inspired by the construction of several aluminum smelters in Quebec (Canada) that Yvon Lavigne founded Lavigne & Baril Services (SL&B).

Guided by his instinctive business sense, Yvon Lavigne understood that businesses and industries alike are ever-searching for trained and efficient manpower. He promptly undertook the development of a rigorous hiring process, team recruitment and the elaboration of training programs on the various aspects of industrial equipment operation and workplace health and safety.

Ever since, SL&B has offered qualified personnel to all sectors of aluminum smelter operations. The SL&B team is equipped with the abundant technical knowledge relevant to the entire primary metal aluminium production process.

For over twenty years, the competent, efficient and safety-conscious SL&B personnel have contributed directly to the accomplishment of client business and production objectives.
