What is the future for Gould Industries?
Gould Industries is at a pivotal point as company culture intertwines with the spirit of our community in Montreal and beyond its roots. We've had a major part in an initiative to improve employee retention and performance through a new artist program bringing life and creativity to our community. By using our main building as a humongous canvas, we've created a major tourist landmark in Montreal curated by our local artist Enmasse which draws attention from spectators worldwide. This makes for an attractive place to take pictures and discover beautiful parts of Montreal for tourists. Beyond just an emphasis on bringing life to our community through art, we're always pushing towards retaining a forward-thinking green attitude when it comes to our emphasis on renewable materials.
