September 2017: Prelam Solutions measures and eliminates outdoor odour problems

Wednesday September 6, 2017 – Prelam Entreprises, a company based out of Moncton, is launching a new outdoor odour evaluation and solutions service. Prelam Solutions will now be able to measure outdoor odours, produce a report on the situation and propose eco-friendly and effective solutions to the problem. The service is designed for industries and municipalities as well as provincial and federal authorities.

“We have the necessary equipment to measure odours on a scale of international units. We can measure and report on concentration levels as well as pinpoint periods when odours are strongest. Once this is done, we can offer customized solutions”, explains Luc Jalbert, cofounder of Prelam.

The company can also collect odour samples, which they bring back to their Moncton labs to conduct in-depth analyses and develop unique solutions to every problem. “We have Teflon bags that allow us to trap odours. Once they are brought to the lab, we develop a formula in order to counteract the odour. All the products we use are safe for the environment. If a community is experiencing odour problems, we can offer fast intervention to remedy the situation; we can also perform follow-up testing to ensure the situation is dealt with optimally”, specifies Mr. Jalbert.

Prelam Solutions is a new ecological approach to solving problems that really inconvenience communities. “We know that certain industries can create odour problems that can be disruptive for neighbourhoods and entire communities. Our services and products will help industry and communities live together. Everyone wins”, concludes Luc Jalbert.

Prelam Entreprises has specialized in odour elimination since its foundation. They are the creators behind the products Just’a Drop and Just’a Spray. With this new division, Prelam is attacking odour elimination on a larger scale.

July 2015: Moncton Company makes embarrassing bathroom odour a smell of the past.

Contact Information:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 17, 2015

Moncton Company makes embarrassing bathroom odour a smell of the past.

Moncton, NB – Everybody poops. Going to the bathroom is something we all have in common, a natural human function, yet most of us put a lot of time and effort into proving that we simply don’t go.

Don’t let embarrassing bathroom odour get you in a bind. The folks at Prelam Enterprises are bound and determined to make going in public the talk of the town with the introductions of their latest product, Just’a Spray.

From the makers of Just’a Drop, the original bathroom odour eliminator, Just’a Spray works in the same fashion by applying a few sprays into the toilet bowl, before you go, to eliminate any odours before they occur.

Over 7% of Canadians have spoken openly about their fear of relieving themselves in public places, retaining themselves until they get home. In an effort to flush out the facts, the Poo Patrol will be hitting the streets this summer conducting a short survey to get feedback about Monctonian’s bathroom habits.

With their “Photo-Poop” Porta-Potty in toe, the Poo-Patrol will be having a little fun with the public, handing out samples as well as great contests and give-aways. They will also be asking the public their opinion on the way they “GO”, from public avoidance to holding it in.

It’s a relief to know that next time you’re faced with the dreaded task of entering the loo at work or at a friend or relative’s house, you can reach for your trusty bottle of Just’a Spray.

Prelam Enterprises sells and manufactures various air care products on a global level. Co-owned by Luc Jalbert and Don Goguen and is located in Moncton, New Brunswick.

After a decade in the air freshener business, you’d think these two would be pooped battling multinationals like Proctor & Gamble, SC Johnson & Son Inc. and Dial Corp. however, Prelam has managed to secure a niche market in the air care sector, one that has obviously appealed to retailers and consumers alike.

Solution to Nasty Bathroom Smells

Montreal native Luc Jalbert knows a thing or two about nasty bathroom smells and has spent the best part of a decade doing something about it. Today the co-owner of Prelam Enterprises Ltd., a household products business in Moncton NB, is introducing a new spray he has developed to deal with the problem and it is on the shelves of Jean Coutu pharmacies throughout Quebec.

Just ‘a Spray toilet bowl odor eliminator, when sprayed into the toilet bowl, immediately forms a film on top of the water that seals in whatever is dropped into the toilet bowl, eliminating bad smells and replacing them with fragrant ones made from scents purchased from major perfume houses in Europe.

Launched in Quebec and the Maritimes, Just ‘a Spray is packaged and marketed as an upscale product for homes, offices and travel and will be available online within the coming weeks. A national sampling program is planned and the all Canadian made product will be sold nation-wide by summer. The first of Prelam’s products using the same water seal technology, Just ‘ Drop has, to date, sold over six million units in Canada and globally.

Moncton Businessman Jumps off 876-foot Bridge
MONCTON, NB – A Moncton businessman will take the jump this weekend! It is not every day that one gets to witness someone jumping off a bridge is it? Especially an 875 foot one, but on October 17th over 200, 000 people worldwide will gather for this years International Bridge event to be able to witness just that.

Bridge Day is the largest extreme sports event and the largest gathering of BASE jumpers in the world held on the third Saturday in October every year in Fayetteville, West Virginia, USA. 450 jumpers, hundreds of rappellers, and up to 200,000 spectators are expected to attend this year’s Bridge Day on Saturday, October 17, 2009. The New River Gorge Bridge, 876′ tall and the world’s second longest single arch bridge, is the launch point for at least six hours (9am-3pm EDT) of legal, safe BASE jumps. Our local area CEO and business owner Don Goguen will be one of this year’s jumpers. For some it will be a once in a lifetime experience to see but for Don Goguen, well, it is the dive of a life time…..
That is how local Moncton area resident, CEO and co-founder of Prelam Enterprises,manufacturer of “just a Drop” Odor eliminator feels and he is counting the days until it will happen. Don Goguen, an avid sky-diver and CEO of Prelam Enterprises, producer of the Just a Drop bathroom freshener says he planned this trip to West Virginia to take part in the annual base jump from the New River Gorge Bridge in Fayetteville and join some 450 plus jumpers in this year’s event to bring awareness internationally. Coverage of the jumpers will be on National TV such as CNN and CBC. Photographers and journalists from all over the globe were there last year to cover such an event and this year marks the 30th anniversary so we expect an even larger turnout. Most jumpers aim for dry ground but not our Don. He is donning his snorkel and taking a big spash! He will be heading
directly into the water, one of very few who will be diving into the lake this year. Most who land in the water do so by accident, but not Don. He will be prepared, snorkel gear and all.
Don is owner and co-founder of Prelam Enterprises Inc. who produce a product called Just a Drop. In Canada, the product is sold in most of the major retailers plus supermarkets and pharmacies from St. Jonn’s to Vancouver. It is also sold in the United States. Advertising and publicity stunts like this one has generated interest and he has managed to attract interest from about 20 more countries including China, Ireland and the Barbadoes.
Skydiver and businessman Don Goguen, says “We certainly plan on jumping again along with sponsoring this world class event, and Just a Drop will naturally be along for the ride” Just a drop, one drop in the toilette eliminates embarrassing odors before they start by trapping the gasses below the surface. International events like this are bringing awareness to a product that can help every household and any individual with problems such as IBS, Crones and colitis or just plain eliminate the embarrassment of having to go anywhere, or anytime.

Nov 2008: Marketing Coup – Moncton Businessman Jumps off 876-foot Bridge

Marketing Coup – Moncton Businessman Jumps off 876-foot Bridge
MONCTON, NB – A Moncton businessman has taken his 2008 marketing efforts world-wide with an 876-foot plunge from the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia.
Don Goguen, an avid sky-diver and president of Prelam Enterprises, producer of the Just’a Drop bathroom freshener, took part in the annual base jump which turned into an added bonus for his firm. CNN was shooting and broadcasting the event live so Prelam designers seized the opportunity and created a large banner to hang alongside the bridge where participants would be jumping from.
“This is a new type of marketing for us,” says Goguen. “The plan worked. Besides the live broadcast, photographers and journalists from all over the globe were covering the event. Millions of people saw our product advertised.”
Historically, Prelam relied mostly on media coverage to get information out to the public. “We simply didn’t have the money to market the product massively. The reason the product survived is because it works, and people understand its value.” But in the last year, the firm attracted investment dollars and set out on a substantial marketing program. Sales have shot up, and continue to rise.
In Canada, the Just’a Drop is sold in most of the major retailers plus supermarkets and pharmacies from St. Jonn’s to Vancouver. It is also sold in the United States. Advertising and publicity generated in recent months have attracted interest from 56 countries including Australia, China and Ireland, where the Just’a Drop is already on the shelves.
For skydiver and businessman Don Goguen, the prospect to replicating the feat next year is simple – it’s a done deal. “Just’a Drop will be sponsoring this world class event again in 2009.”

The Sweet Smell of Success
Moncton entrepreneur takes another bite out of the big apple
Moncton, July 16, 2007: Luc Jalbert, an ambitious entrepreneur from Moncton, has once again made his way to New York, this time for a special appearance on CNBC’s “The Big Idea” with Donny Deutsch.

The program introduces the viewer to men and women who have made their fortune with their Big Idea. Jalbert was invited to discuss his revolutionary toilet odour neutralizer, Just’a Drop, a tiny, sweet smelling liquid that has been making its way across North America since 2004. The product has been creating quite a buzz, to say the least, and our neighbors to the south can’t seem to get enough of it.

Last year, Luc and his “Poo Crew” headed down to Times Square, armed with a toilet and a survey entitled “Be an Odour Voter.” The survey asked consumers to “sit down and be counted!” and contained questions like “Are you a public avoider?” or “How long before it is safe for someone to enter the bathroom after you?”

The toilet attracted quite a crowd including, a very special guest, The Naked Cowboy. He too sat down to be counted and played a little ditty while he filled out the questionnaire. The story was featured that day on the Howard Stern show and the video documentary later on CBC Venture, back home here in Canada.

Filming for “The Big Idea” with Donny Deutsch took place on Tuesday, July 17th with the show airing on Thursday, July 19th at 10 PM / 1 AM ET. This is sure to be an enlightening and entertaining event not to be missed.

Luc Jalbert is the Vice President of Prelam Enterprises, an air freshener company, located in Moncton, New Brunswick. He and his partner Don Goguen have been marketing their revolutionary Just’a Drop Toilet Odour Neutralizer since 2004 where sales are now approaching half a million units across North America. Just’a Drop is available across Canada at many fine retailers and online at www.justadrop.ca.
