Deslaurier Custom Cabinets Plant Tour
Uncategorized | July 7, 2016
Our team at Lagois, recently had the opportunity to take a tour of the Deslaurier Custom Cabinets plant in Renfrew, Ontario. We were invited by Sales Manager Bob Gould and co-owners Jim Deslaurier and Denis Staples. We spent the day observing their manufacturing process, first hand – from the start of production when the wood is selected and measured to cut – to the staining stage – to its assembly, packaging and shipping process. Each custom made item is inspected multiple times throughout the process to make sure that it meets Deslaurier’s high standard of quality. We noticed that some pieces are even sanded by hand to ensure there are no flaws. Their entire cabinetry is manufactured at their Renfrew plant.
We were impressed with the measures they take to honour their commitment to the environment by being a ‘green’ manufacturing facility and how they were able to re-build their business and make it even better following the devastating fire that destroyed their entire plant in 2009.
We would like to say Thank You to the Deslaurier team, for allowing us the opportunity to be part of the tour and to gain an understanding of the entire process and how it begins with a only a piece of wood that is then transformed into beautiful cabinets!
We look forward to the opportunity of installing a Deslaurier kitchen in your home!
