David Grondin, Director — Flooring Division
Preparing ERS for the future
Escaliers Rive-Sud has always been a part of David Grondin’s life. Throughout his schooling years in high school, college and university, he kept working with a passion for the company his father Michel Grondin founded. While studying administration and economics, he also gained a solid experience of staircase manufacturing and installation, and learned everything about their components (newels, balusters, handrails, stringers, treads, skirt boards, etc.).
His will to carry on the family business tradition took life when younger brother Olivier Grondin enlisted in a woodworking and furniture-finishing program. David gets his university degree and then joins the ERS team full time in the spring of 2008.
Being trained in administration and marketing, he takes on various responsibilities dealing with all aspects of customer service, with suppliers, purchasing and project coordination.
What is David’s vision for the future? Obviously, that more South Shore customers benefit from the expert knowledge of Escaliers Rive-Sud in manufacturing and installing staircases and floorings, but also to extend this service further East and West of Montreal, as well as in the Eastern Townships.
Along with brother Olivier, David offers a determined, experienced and dynamic succession path for the firm. In a few years, their father will be able to hand over the keys with confidence, peace of mind and, most importantly, the satisfaction of a job well done.
