Founded in 1968 by master electrician Marcel Lanthier, Marcel Electric Inc serves the repair, installation, and renovation needs of Ottawa and the surrounding areas.
After Marcel retired in 1989 due to illness, Barry Lanthier (Marcel’s son) and Bruce Lanthier (Marcel’s nephew), kept the family company going as its two shareholders. Today, Marcel Electric employs six dedicated individuals to serve the Ottawa area.
