Driven by innovation

Like many success stories, Techsol Marine’s founder, Claude Messiaen, had humble beginnings in the basement of his Quebec City home. An engineering officer with the Canadian Coast Guard for nearly 20 years, Mr. Messiaen left that job with a clear vision of advancing the marine industry by centralizing and automating ship monitoring systems.

In the early 2000s, Techsol Marine experienced sustained growth by offering the complete integration of power distribution systems, propulsion systems, consoles, navigation equipment, and more.

A few years later, Mr. Messiaen handed over the company to Dutch interests. Techsol Marine continued its journey, even though there were sometimes pitfalls along the way. For a few years, employees had to be resilient and pull together to keep the ship afloat.

In 2019, Ocean Group and François Lessard acquired Techsol Marine, making the company 100% Canadian again.

Even today, each system is proudly designed, manufactured, assembled, and tested at Techsol Marine’s head office in Quebec City.
