An environmental conscience

“There is no better business practice than the responsible use of resources.”

Current president Alain Duval remembers his grandfather's determination to reduce waste and reuse materials. Born out of necessity, those fundamental values still guide our operations today. The sustainability certifications we've earned over the years and our continued efforts to reduce our environmental footprint are part of a longstanding commitment to sustainability and the responsible use of resources.
