1933 - today
Founded by Horace A. Maheu in 1933 in Quebec City, Maheu&Maheu was a success from the start—and with good reason! Back then, staff promised customers they would eat any cockroaches that survived the exterminator’s visit. Already, the firm was setting itself apart with a commitment that would later inspire the slogan “Leave them to us.”
Over the years, the company grew steadily into the leading pest management firm in the Quebec City area and the eastern part of the province. Encouraged by its success, Maheu&Maheu began opening regional offices in the 1970s.
The late eighties and early nineties marked a period of renewed expansion for Maheu&Maheu. The company made major inroads in the agricultural sector and opened a new office in Montreal to better meet the needs of its agrifood customers. Maheu&Maheu also played a pioneering role on the environmental front, introducing its PMP Ratio program in 1989 to help minimize pesticide use.
In 1996, the quality and thoroughness of Maheu&Maheu operations earned the company its ISO 9002 certification. At the same time, the company introduced quality and environment policies that reflected its vision and commitment to customers.
Maheu&Maheu opened regional offices in Gatineau and New Brunswick in 1998, followed by Southern Ontario in 2001. It has also established strategic alliances to help expand markets and share technical and scientific knowledge with a variety of partners.
In 2002, the company launched the first phase of its extranet, which provides customers with special access to certain information and the option of monitoring their files in real time.
In 2004, Maheu&Maheu joins the Food Protection Alliance, a North-American group of regional companies with a solid reputation having the ability to service the most part of the United States and Mexico.
In 2005, the company proudly obtained its first pan-Canadian account and starts offering a national coverage with a network of
While celebrating its 75 th anniversary, Maheu&Maheu acquires the pest management division of Veolia Environmental Services. What could have been better than greeting on board the sister company, Mysto, who paved the way to the start of Maheu&Maheu in Quebec City in 1933. This was really a fantastic coincidence.
In 2009, this is the implementation of a sustainable development policy through a desire of managing resources responsibly in the long-term. In line with this policy, the company builds their new LEED certified headquarters in 2012.
These initiatives have simply reaffirmed Maheu&Maheu’s position as a pest management industry leader.
