Dubeau’s adventure began in 1936 when the brothers Jules and William Dubeau started a sawmill operation in St-Norbert, a region North East of Montreal, Quebec. Motivated and dedicated, it didn’t take long before the brothers started making wood floors, making them the second manufacturer of hardwood floors in Canada.
Growth was on the agenda year after year and Dubeau became a renowned name in the industry and the market. In 1960, Dubeau innovated by making parquet floors and was quickly successful with their new line. The company was thriving until 1978 when a fire completely destroyed Dubeau’s facilities. But the brothers couldn’t be stopped. Like a phoenix, Dubeau arose from its ashes and even innovated once more in the mid-eighties by launching prefinished parquet floors.
In 2001, the Lauzon family took over the destiny of the company and brought Dubeau to new heights. Lauzon’s fully integrated operations, from forestry to manufacturing byproducts from wood residues, have help Dubeau become a « green » company and apply eco-friendly policies such as our zero-waste program. It also helped secure a continuous source of wood and allowed for advanced quality control all along the production chain.
Today, with continuous investments in new technology and in cultivating the unique know-how and dedication of our people, we are confident that the legacy of excellence initiated by the Dubeau brothers will be transmitted for generations to come.
Before the floor, there was the tree. The Lauzon Group sets itself apart from other hardwood floor manufacturers with its fully integrated operations which begin by harvesting the forest with care and passion. Wood is a renewable resource and maintaining its continuous supply for now and the future, demands rigorous application of the best stewardship forestry practices.
We maintain and crop more than two million acres of private and public forests by applying strict norms for wildlife, water and forest well-being and protection, in accordance with Quebec’s Forestry Law.
This vertical integration contributes an advanced knowledge of wood and the product itself. It allows us to maximize quality and efficiency at each stage of the process while securing a supply of wood for at least 25 years.
As a testimony to the environment and the well-being of our forest, we have developed a zero-waste program by recycling all wood residues to produce wood pellets, the cleanest energy. Our commitment also extends to the finishes we apply on our floors which are eco-friendly and exempt of formaldehyde, VOCs and solvents.
Choosing a Dubeau floor, it’s choosing to help preserve our natural resources for future generations. As all our floors come from sustainably managed forest, are legally sourced and comply with the US Lacey Act.
We are ISO 14001 certified for environmental management practices, which include the way we measure our environmental impact and work constantly to improve our performance.
