Les Excavations Payette / History



In 1956, Armand Payette founded A. Payette Construction ltée, specializing in residential excavation, road construction and snow removal. Twenty-two years later, after sustained growth, three management employees joined forces and purchased the company. A. Payette Construction ltée became Les Excavations Payette ltée.

For more than 30 years, our clientele became more diversified and loyal, we expanded our fleet of equipment and our expertise became more refined. Today, Excavations Payette is involved in the City of Montreal’s largest projects.

The reputation of our company then aroused the interest of Fayolle Canada, a European company of international stature. In 2010, the two companies joined forces with Excavations Payette ltée. joining the Groupe Fayolle Canada Inc.

Together with the Fayolle Group, the company has continued to grow, driven by the same priorities of outstanding work and customer satisfaction.
