September 13, 2022

Boucherville (Quebec), September 13, 2022 – It is with immense pride that Norbec, North America’s leading manufacturer of cold rooms and architectural panels, celebrates its 40th anniversary. Founded in 1982 by Jean-Pierre Gingras and Dominique Majeau, Norbec now has more than 300 employees across two sites in Boucherville and Saint-Hyacinthe. 

“Who would have thought, in 1982, that our very small company would one day become the undisputed Canadian leader in its sector, and now set to conquer the American market. From the very beginning, our mission was to manufacture high quality products through constant innovation to better meet the needs of our customers in all our sectors of activity. To achieve these goals, I wanted to create a stimulating work environment where each member of the Norbec team can accomplish themselves and be proud to contribute to all stages of growth in a respectful and collaborative manner. My vision is that everyone is equal, and everyone can contribute in their own way to the overall success of our organization. I am so happy to see today the result of all these efforts leading to the notoriety of Norbec in the business world but especially by the beautiful big family created which contributes today to this success.’ – Jean-Pierre Gingras, Founder of Norbec. 

”When I joined Norbec in 2017, I was proud to join a company with so much potential with the offering of high-performance and energy-efficient products and for the presence of a strong culture focused on customers and people. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with passionate and dedicated people every day. Their commitment to putting our customers first and living our corporate values has been integral to Norbec’s progress and success. It is because of them that we are lucky enough to celebrate our 40th anniversary and now be one of the best managed companies in Canada. Thank you also to our customers and partners for trusting us for 40 years now and making us the leader in our industry. We will work tirelessly to make Norbec even stronger and continue to provide quality products and listen to your needs to offer you a better customer experience. ” -Jan Lembregts, President and Chief Executive Officer of Norbec.
