L'histoire de Barrette

L'histoire de barrette fait partie de l'ingéniosité, de la persévérance et d'un désir inébranlable de trouver de plus en plus de façons de fabriquer et de distribuer nos produits.

400 miles north of Montreal, Roméo Barrette – a village beekeeper turned mayor and general store owner – begins buying wood and cutting it down for sale to paper mills.
Roméo’s 14-year-old son, Vianney Barrette, starts helping his father at work. By the time he is 17, he will be running a work camp, hauling four-foot logs to the railway from dawn until midnight.
Barvi Limited is incorporated as freight company located in Val-d’Or in Abitibi, Quebec. The name is a combination of the first syllables of Vianney’s last and first name: BARrette VIanney.
Barvi Limited moved to Laval to operate a lumber yard, purchasing and trading lumber. Shortly thereafter on the same site, Vianney also built a cutting and dressing facility.
Barvi Limited business flourishes and, in order to grow the company even more, Vianney opens the first Barrette’s sawmill in Lebel-sur-Quévillon, Quebec, with a partner.
In order to consolidate his business operations, Vianney decided to incorporate Les Entreprises Barrette Limited (LEB) which will from then on became the owner of Barvi Limited and the owner of his participation in the sawmill located in Lebel-sur-Quévillon, Quebec.
September 28, Vianney Barrette passes away at age 45. He leaves behind his wife and their 5 children.
The Barrette family wishes to continue Vianney’s accomplishments. Then aged 20, Yves starts over with his sisters and brother and they buy a sawmill located in Chapais, Quebec. The same year, the company begins producing wood fences in Laval under the name Fenclo Ltd in order to add value to short pieces of wood produced by the Chapais sawmill. Barrette-Chapais Ltd production starts at 40 million board feet while Fenclo Ltd fence panels truck loads are numbered at 50.
Barrette-Chapais Ltd annual production is 185 million board feet while Fenclo Ltd fence panels truck loads doubles to 1,600 due to the installation of an innovative wood fence automatic nailer.
The first log goes through Barrette’s internally designed and created end dogger in the Chapais sawmill.
Barrette-Chapais Ltd annual production is 200 million board feet while Fenclo Ltd’s fence panels truck loads are numbered at 3,400.
Annual production in Chapais reaches 300 million board feet, making it the biggest sawmill in Quebec and the most efficient throughout North America for logs of that size. The same year, Fenclo Ltd reaches a production record of 6,000 truck loads.
Barrette enters into a partnership with Distribution Toiture Mauricienne Inc. (DTM) to manufacture roof trusses and floor joists.
Barrette acquires U.S. Fence, a sales, marketing and customer service company in Cleveland, Ohio. Barrette also purchases Erwin Industries, a vinyl fence and wood railing manufacturing company operating in Bulls Gap, Tennessee.
Barrette acquires Plastic Research Company (PRC) a manufacturing plant that produces molded lattice, trellises, and arbors in Flint, Michigan. That same year, the Field Team is built up in Cleveland, Ohio. The Team has become Barrette’s eyes and years on the field to ensure the proper display of its products.
Wishing to diversify its products portfolio, Barrette introduces new Homestyle Sheds manufactured in Flint, Michigan.
Barrette buys the vinyl shed division of Royal Industries, expanding its Outdoor Living Products division. It also acquires Crane Fencing, adding a pro vinyl fence customer base as well as retail vinyl fence business, and two plants manufacturing wooden bed frames from Leggett & Platt Corporation.

Construit avec ingéniosité. Construit sur l'intégrité.

Notre histoire a débuté au début du siècle dernier, à 400 km au nord de Montréal où Romeo barrette a commencé à vendre du bois aux papetières. Dans les années 1960, le fils de Roméo Vianney avait élargi l'entreprise familiale en une compagnie de fret, Barvi Ltd, une Cour de bois et une scierie, toutes situées au Québec.

Depuis la fin de la 1990, barrette a utilisé toutes les ressources disponibles pour se développer dans d'autres entreprises, y compris en partenariat avec distribution toiture mauricienne et l'acquisition de la fabrication et des sociétés de vie en plein air comme U.S. Fence. Maintenant, barrette est l'un des plus grands fabricants d'Amérique du Nord de matériaux de construction en vinyle et en bois, et des lignes de vie en plein air.

Chez barrette, nous connaissons notre succès jaillit de notre culture. Nous sommes fiers d'avoir la réputation de faire l'impossible, repousser les limites et affronter chaque défi avec une ingéniosité laborieuse.
