  3. without making publicity !!! just to let you know !!! jean-guy A major transaction was concluded between two family businesses in La Matanie when André Hallé et fils became the new owner of Amable Caron et fils. 68 years after its founding, the company born in Saint-Luc-de-Matane passes the torch to another family business in the region, André Hallé et fils, which will integrate all the Honda and Husqvarna product lines thanks to its new acquisition. . All employees, including a mechanic specializing in Yamaha products, will also join André Hallé's team. The rich history of Amable Caron and his wife Thérèse Fortin dates back to 1952 when the business opened. Two years later, the business moved to the heart of the city under the name of Matane Chainsaw and became the sole retailer of Honda motorcycles in Matane in 1967. Yamaha snowmobiles then made their debut in 1969. It was finally in 1993 that Amable Caron transferred his business to his sons Michel and Sylvain who took up the torch even though they were already working in the business. “When my parents retired, my brother and I took over. There aren't many businesses around here that have been established for almost 70 years. Moreover, the clientele is also family. When parents were satisfied, the children were seen to become customers years later. I would also like to take this opportunity to warmly thank all our customers who have supported us over the years, ”says Sylvain Caron. For Amable Caron's son, André Hallé's offer to purchase was welcome. “I was nearing retirement and it's a company that has grown along with us. We know them well and there is a lot of respect and trust between our two companies. " This is how a page turns but the story continues while the activities will be centralized at André Hallé et fils. “It is an honor for us to take over the business and keep it in the region. We are also happy to integrate two new product lines into our business. We are also looking forward to welcoming Amable Caron et fils customers to our premises, ”concludes one of the co-owners, Philippe Hallé,
