The platform that started it all

About 25 years ago, Armand Rainville, our current chairman, was running a team of bricklayers, and he decided to try out mastclimbers from a company called Fraco. He rented 8 platforms for his worksite, but his team was not pleased : they told Armand to take them out of there.

Fraco Platforms: When 1 + 1 = 1

Every day, Fraco work platforms prove their value on hundreds of construction sites in North America and Europe. One of the main manifestations of their flexibility is the ability to combine two motorized units in order to extend the working space.

The perfect package for pulps and papers

For 20 years, Fraco has developed extraordinary expertise in the supply of equipment used for the construction of tanks and vessels with several hundred tons of capacity, whether for laying outdoor bricks or structural ceramic tiles found inside these tanks. We invite you to look at few realizations including the construction of a 650-ton high-density reservoir of a pulp and paper plant.

Airports: Fraco takes off

The infrastructure sector, and especially the airport industry, is also one where Fraco products prove their usefulness. Often used for the installation of metal cladding in hangars, mast climbing work platforms also stand out in the construction of international terminals that compete for their modernism and architectural styles. Among other things, we invite you to learn about our contribution to the construction of the latest Edmonton International Airport terminal and other North American and European projects.

Building bridges for generations

Whether it is for building a new bridge or repairing another, Fraco's expertise has often been used for more than 20 years. We provide permanent elevators for cable-stayed bridge pylons, as well as work platforms to perform concrete work on pillars and other structures. Fraco stands out for its ability to offer access solutions that adapt to all bridge configurations. We invite you to see our contributions to the Samuel-de-Champlain Bridge in Montreal and other major projects in Canada and United States

It grows in the grain sector!

Fraco supplies access solutions to the grain industry. We provide lifting devices for grain silo located in grain terminals or on mills. Fraco can easily replace belt manlifts and traction elevators and provide solutions to access the conveyor structure or the transfer tower.

Fraco is active in the aggregate industry

Fraco offers to the aggregate industry several lifting solutions for persons and material. Whether it's to climb the floors of a preheating tower or access the storage silos of a cement plant, or to check the proper functioning of the components of an asphalt plant, Fraco offers efficient industrial elevators adapted to all conditions and climates.
