Our history

A passion for wood

The Dubeau journey began in 1936 when brothers Jules and William Dubeau started a sawmill operation in Saint-Norbert, in the Lanaudière region of Quebec. Driven by unwavering motivation and commitment it didn’t take long for the two brothers to venture into the manufacturing of hardwood floors. This business move combined perseverance made the Dubeau brand the second-largest hardwood flooring manufacturer in Canada.

Growth continued in the years that followed and the Dubeau Brand quickly became a renowned name in the industry. In the 1960s the company introduced parquetry products which provided an affordable alternative to its range of hardwood floors. Unfortunately, in 1978 a major fire devastated their factory forcing the Dubeau brothers to rebuild everything from scratch.

After successfully overcoming the colossal challenge of reconstruction Dubeau continued to innovate in the 1980s by introducing a range of prefinished parquetry products to the market.

A legacy of Excellence

In 2001 the Lauzon family took the helm of the company propelling Dubeau floors to new heights. With Lauzon’s vertical integration from forestry to wood sourcing and all stages of manufacturing, Dubeau embarked on a green transformation. They adopted the most cutting-edge eco-friendly practices including implementing a zero-waste policy.

Lauzon’s continuous strategic investments in technology and research combined with the expertise and commitment of a passionate team ensures the longevity of the tradition of excellence. The Dubeau Brothers initiated the highest standards which is approaching its centennial milestone.

Eco-responsible sourcing

At the Lauzon Group, even before we think about our floors, we celebrate the richness of the forest. Our company stands out in the industry with our vertically integrated approach. This strategy begins in the forests where we preserve our plantation with unwavering passion. Wood is a precious renewable resource that deserves a rigorous eco-responsible approach to ensure a continuous supply.

We take pride in managing and maintaining over two million acres of forested land that is both private and public. Our commitment to wildlife, water, forests, and all stakeholders is in full compliance with the strictest environmental standards of Quebec’s Forest Act.

This vertical integration gives us cutting-edge expertise in products and allows us to select our raw material optimally while ensuring a wood supply for at least the next 25 years.

When you choose a Dubeau floor you are actively contributing to the preservation of natural resources for future generations. All the wood we use comes from forests managed according to the strictest sustainability standards and are in full compliance with the U.S. Lacey Act.


When you choose a Dubeau floor you can take comfort in knowing that our policies are designed to protect the forest for generations to come. Whether Canadian or imported, we only choose wood sourced from sustainably managed forests.

As a testimony to the environment and the well-being of our forest we have developed a zero-waste program. All wood residues are recycled to produce wood pellet which is the cleanest form of energy. Our commitment also extends to the finishes that we apply on our floors which are eco-friendly and exempt of formaldehyde, VOCs, and solvents.

Choosing a Dubeau Floor is a commitment in helping preserve our natural resources for future generations. All of our floors come from sustainably managed forests, are legally sourced and comply with the US Lacey Act.
