About us

A Proud Family History

Built on a Strong Foundation

Family-Owned and Operated for Four Generations

Gagnon Inc.’s foundation was laid in the early 1890s by Mark Gagnon, a Minnesota bricklayer. His sons, Flavian and Leonard, followed in with their father’s tradition, and in 1949, they formed Gagnon Inc. What began as a small company serving the Minneapolis area has grown into a company that provides commercial and industrial solutions to clients across the country.

Four generations later, Gagnon is still a family-owned business and remains your trusted specialty services contractor for scaffolding, insulation, fireproofing, and refractory construction. Our ability to provide competitively priced, quality materials and workmanship on time and on budget have earned us repeat business with our clients. Our clients know they can depend on us to respond immediately with 24-hour reliability, 365 days a year. They trust that we’ll get their project done right the first time.
