Valpiro is bought by CREECO

The company started their operations in August 1971 in Val-d’Or. The services provided were baggage handling and fuel that serviced all the airlines that required it. After several years of operations, the company expanded into cargo handling due to the needs of the Cree communities and the La Grande project.

In August 1988, Creeco bought the company. In Val d’Or and La Grande, the major contract is the food and cargo expedition with the Inuit communities and also different services for mining companies in the north.
