La Coop fédérée (René Labrecque) Breakfast Meeting 2011

Mr. René Labrecque of La Coop fédérée was generous enough to take some time out of his busy schedule to speak to CHHMA members at a breakfast meeting in Boucherville, Quebec on October 12.

During the presentation, Mr. Labrecque spoke about Coop fédérée’s future development plans and current membership. He also discussed the coop’s role in the hardware marketplace, its current performance in today’s soft economy, the branding position with the Unimat banner and future expansion plans.

We would like to thank Mr. Labrecque for speaking to our membership. All who attended the meeting left with a better appreciation of Coop fédérée as a retail partner and a clearer understating of its future direction and plans.
