Dream. Passion. Determination.
Three simple but meaningful words that describe the comitment of Éric Labbé to the automotive tuning scene over the last decade. He started from scratch in 1999 with nothing but love for fast and beautiful cars. Without academic formation, a proper shop and employees, he started to design and produce body kits for himself, over nights, just for the kick of it. However, people around him quickly recognized his incredible talent and encouraged him to take it a step further. Éric then decided to quit his day job as a construction worker to put all of his efforts and money to start his own tuning shop. This risky move eventually paid of as more and more clients asked him to work on their cars.
Éric ensured the quality of his projects by making no compromises. He forged himself a solid reputation because of that and gradually start to got attention from different medias, appearing in numbers of magazines and TV shows.
