Atelier Gérard Beaulieu Inc. (AGB) is a family-run manufacturing company that has successfully diversified its business from its humble beginnings into a specialist in manufacture, welding, hydraulic mechanics, etc. It all started in 1912 with the arrival in Saint-Quentin of Moïse Beaulieu, the grandfather of the current shareholder, who founded the town’s first public forge. In 1957, his son Gérard acquired the company to transform it into a welding shop. Later on, Gérard passed the business to his sons Robert, Marc and Michel who became the official owners in 1984. Eventually, Marc became the sole proprietor in 2010.
