The Barrette Story
The story of Barrette is one of ingenuity, perseverance and an unyielding desire to find increasingly better ways to make and distribute our products.
Built with Ingenuity. Built on Integrity.
Our story began in the early part of last century, 400 miles north of Montreal where Romeo Barrette started selling wood to paper mills. By the 1960s, Romeo’s son Vianney had expanded the family business into a freight company, Barvi Ltd, a lumber yard and a sawmill, all located in Quebec.
Since the end of the 1990, Barrette have used all available resources to expand into other ventures including partnering with Distribution Toiture Mauricienne and acquiring manufacturing and outdoor living companies such as U.S. Fence. Now, Barrette is one of North America’s largest manufacturers of vinyl and wood building materials, and outdoor living lines.
At Barrette, we know our success springs from our culture. We are proud to have a reputation for doing the impossible, pushing the limits and confronting every challenge with hardworking ingenuity.
