A bit of history

Prémoulé is the heir to a long tradition of family-owned woodworking and construction businesses in Quebec City since 1905. Since the last century, the Deslauriers family has shaped the landscape of Quebec City through its important buildings, who still subsist today.

From its humble beginnings, Prémoulé has now become the leader in the manufacturing of countertops, doors and components. The company was officially founded in 1968 and at the time had only one employee who was responsible for the daily production of seven or eight units of laminate countertops. In the ’80s Prémoulé multiplied bold initiatives and built its distribution network. In 1991, at an exhibition in Germany, Prémoulé made the discovery of a new product: a cabinet door made of a reconstituted wood panel (MDF) covered with a thermoplastic film.

Between 2000 and 2009, Prémoulé opened a new thermoplastic plant in Hawkesbury, Ontario, became one of the owners of Centre du Comptoir Sag-Lac, in Alma, then acquired the wood door plant Ouellet Doors & Mouldings in Baie-Comeau and polyester door plant Concept Avanti Inc.

Today, Prémoulé has:

  • 400 employees located in six (6) plants;
  • Gross sales exceeding 65 million;
  • Become a major player in the Canadian and American markets.
