The beginnings of Sports DRC1972
In 1972, Sports DRC was founded in Alma by Chantal Boudreault and two partners. At that time, the company was dedicated to the sale and maintenance of various recreational vehicles. Mr. Boudreault quickly gained sole ownership of the company and wanted to become THE reference for recreational vehicles in Lac-Saint-Jean.
The birth of a partnership1980
In the early 1980s, a new building was built to meet the growing demand and the company made a critical transition by adding the Bombardier banner to products already available in-store. That marked the beginning of a partnership that continues to this day. Over the years, the full range of BRP products was added to Sports DRC's offer.
The arrival of a new partner1995
In 1995, Mr. Boudreault decided to begin a new partnership with Yves St-Laurent who is also a recreational vehicle enthusiast. He then sold fifty percent of Sports DRC's shares and its associated companies to Mr. St-Laurent.
Both partners continue to build customer loyalty by sharing their passion for recreational vehicles.
Fire and reconstruction2010
On October 1st, 2010, a fire destroyed the facilities located at 3055 Pont Sud Avenue, in Alma. Without any hesitation, the two partners decided to rebuild. In less than a week, Sports DRC was temporarily relocated in Alma’s industrial park and was ready to welcome its customers.
The arrival of new shareholders2016
In 2016, winds of change blew over Sports DRC. Mr. Boudreault began his well-deserved retirement and sold his shares to Émilie St-Laurent, Jean-Sébastien Martel and Dave St-Laurent. Yves St-Laurent remains the majority shareholder of the company. Émilie and Jean-Sébastien are active in day-to-day operations as Marketing Director and Operations Director, respectively. Yves is president and Dave is a director.
By taking a technological turn, the new directors are following in Mr. Boudreault's footsteps and are continuing his vision. Significant investments have been made to implement the current computer software and the shop has been redesigned. Recreational vehicle enthusiasts can now make their purchases online, from anywhere in the country, all the while making the most of Sports DRC's team expertise.
Satisfied and passionate customers are at the heart of our planning. Each year we manage to pass on our love for recreational vehicles through the spirit of cooperation and mutual trust that reigns in our team. The well-being of our employees is at the centre of our concerns and we focus on developing the strengths and skills of each individual.
Because we, at Sports DRC, also travel across snowmobile trails, ATV trails, roads, and navigate waterbodies you are sure to be well-advised. Our field experience allows us to test our products and to recommend the vehicle that best suits your needs. Our master technicians and service team have the necessary training to take good care of your purchase.
LSports DRC is involved in its community throughout the year by participating in various charitable events. In 2016, Sports DRC was a major partner of the Circuit de vitesse motorisé (CVM) of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. This year, the Sports DRC team will be supporting the new D&D acceleration circuit.
