ABOUT US

Lauzon is an entrepreneurial success deeply rooted in the Canadian forest. 

Our history

The Lauzon company was born from a dream David Lauzon had in 1985, while walking the forests of the Outaouais region in Quebec. That young man’s dream combined with a small initial investment has been transformed into an international company. Lauzon is recognized as a premiere Quebec manufacturer with activities reaching the communities of the Outaouais, the Laurentians, Lanaudière, and Mauricie.

Lauzon is a diversified and vertically integrated group, with a team of 500 people. They harvest precious wood using eco-responsible methods, process the logs in their own sawmill (the largest hardwood sawmill in Canada), and transforms it into high quality products such as prefinished floors, wood pellets for heating and finishing lumber for the woodworking and the furniture industry.

Our Values

We believe each individual is an important element as to who we are and what we strive to convey to our customers, suppliers and partners.

We believe that by being honest and by fostering a climate of listening, respect and participation, we will develop leadership, competence and commitment to a dynamic and innovative environment.

Social Commitment

Since its creation in 1985, Lauzon has recognized the importance of the forest as a natural and sustainable resource. Our philosophy has always been to show respect to nature and ensure the protection and sustainable use of the environment.

Lauzon recognizes that the communities where the factories are located are key to the smooth running of its operations. To recognize the community’s support and generosity Lauzon is proud to “give back” and be associated with local community and social causes.

A true Canadian success story, our company continues to grow and has a team of employees driven by the same passion. As a team we are all determined to contribute to the development of this dynamic and socially and economically responsible company.
