On June 21, 1976, Mr. Ralph G. Fleet took over the company. Mr. Fleet was already involved in his company Fleet Shoe Findings Limited. The two companies merged in 1984, and since that day, the company has been known as Bennett Fleet Inc.



Mr. Fleet later partnered with Mr. Gilles Lussier, a chartered professional accountant, in 1987 for operations management. Mr. Lussier became a co-owner in 2003. He has been the sole shareholder since Mr. Fleet's death in 2011. In 2019, Bennett Fleet moved to Marieville to adapt to its repositioning. They currently occupy the same premises.
