40 Years of History Serving Our Customers
Jarmicos Ltd. is a family company established at 495 Blvd. St-René East in Gatineau, Quebec, offering services and expertise in commercial laundry and residential appliances.
From an early age, Serge Farley learned the trade as a household appliance technician with his father at the family laundromat, located at the corner of Main Street and St-René Boulevard in Gatineau. The father and son duo shared a common goal: to serve a commercial clientele. In 1973 Jarmicos Ltd. was born and their first appliances were sold or rented.
In 1982, Jarmicos became an authorized Inglis® agent for the sale of commercial and wholesale appliances to contractors. They later acquired Sterling Appliances®, an Ottawa-based commercial appliances company.
Over the years, several brothers and sisters contributed to the company's development, including Mireille, who joined the team in 1984. To better serve its clientele, Jarmicos opened an appliance parts shop. Their inventory continued to grow over the years. Jarmicos Ltd. now offers the largest appliance parts inventory in the Ottawa area for certain brands.
In 2007, after Whirlpool® acquired Inglis® in 2000, Jarmicos became the official distributor of the Whirlpool® commercial brand for Eastern Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. Whirlpool® Commercial no longer sells directly to furniture stores; they now must go through a distributor.
In 2008, Serge took full control and Mireille left Jarmicos. That's when the company name was changed to Jarmicos Electrical Appliances Ltd. Jarmicos Ltd. & Sterling Appliances remained a part of the new company.
