Our creativity and rigour are at the service of your world.
Quality and respect as our fondations
Since our inception, we have striven for excellence in the design, development, manufacture and marketing of quality hardwood products that provide our customers with total peace of mind. Since hardwood is our passion, respect for the natural resource is at the heart of our priorities.
Yet, respect goes far beyond the resource; it is a pillar of our business. He speaks among the members of our dynamic team, who work closely together to show the same respect for our clients and our partners. Because quality and respect are at the heart of Preverco’s values.
A small story of big change
Founded by MM. Fernand Dufresne, Gaston Julien and Edmond Perreault, Preverco has evolved over the years from craft production to leadership. The company initially purchased its floors from manufacturers and then varnished them in a small, rented space of about 2,500 square feet. By acquiring a supplier in 1994 to manufacture its hardwood, Preverco embarked on a major venture.
The company has set milestones that have enabled it to deploy strong experience and expertise. Preverco now has a sawmill in Daveluyville and plants in Boisbriand and Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, where its head office is also located. In constant pursuit of excellence, Preverco is now at the cutting edge with the robotics of its well-underway operations. Our products are available through a network of retailers throughout North America.
Environmental mission and strategy (ESG)
Wood’s Superior environnemental performance
Unlike the majority of plastic/petrol based alternatives, (LVT or Vinyl) real wood floors made in Canada have a minimal carbon footprint. Wood is biodegradable and recyclable. They can last for a lifetime and still stay beautiful after years with a sanding and refinishing.
We go further by making everything close.
As a Canadian hardwood floor manufacturer, we are committed to the environment. The core of our strategy is proximity. We harvest here. We manufacture here. In addition, we have established a local network of local partners that reuse our wood waste, chips and sawdust to make the most of every tree harvested.
- WOOD 100% FROM HERE
Our raw material supply comes entirely from North America. We encourage environmentally friendly forest management practices and only do business with companies that promote selective logging and forest regeneration
Our products also respect the U.S. Lacey Act which is one of the world’s primary legislative examples of wildlife preservation and forest conservation.
- 100% MADE HERE
Our Engineered floors are 100% made here in Canada and subject to strict regulations regarding where the wood has been logged, what ancillary materials were used to make them, environmental standards, and proper product labeling and advertising.
From the solid top layer to the inner core of the floor, the unique conception of Flex™ and Max™ contributes to the reduction of the carbon footprint.
- ZERO OVERSEAS CARRIAGE OF COMPONENTS
Many flooring companies are crossing the ocean with raw material to return finished products in America. They will label their products as « packaged in Canada » or « designed in Canada » to suggest that they sell a local product. Be careful with these claims: if you cannot get the address of the manufacturing plant in Canada, you are most likely facing and imported product.
Preverco is one of the first engineered wood floors to stop using Baltic Birch and other imported veneers. It is a strong statement to limit the greenhouse gases associated with the transportation of imported components.
Healthy homes, another priority
Today’s consumers make conscious choices. They want to understand what they are buying. Especially when the floor covering will be a huge part of their living environment. If you are concerned about the health impact of the products that are surrounding you in your home, if you want your living space to be free of formaldehyde or other toxic components, Preverco will give you peace of mind.
