A real Solid or Engineered wood floor, 100% made in Canada is not only a responsible choice; it is the most obvious for any homeowner conscious of his impact on environment.

We go further by making
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.
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.
