E Paquin Inc. was founded by Édouard Paquin in Piedmont Quebec in 1964. At that time, Mr. Paquin’s workshop answered the markets needs. Home builders only had the local manufacturers to make their doors and windows. Mr. Paquin was extremely proud and concerned with the quality of his product. He always insisted that products stemming from his workshop be beyond reproach of design, conception and exempt from any defects. It is with this goal in mind that he trained his succession and made his reputation.
The workshop of doors and windows, handcrafted at first, made its first major expansion in 1980. Besides the workshop, he added a showroom, offices and a warehouse. Before the expansion of 1980, the company made 90 % of all the products it sold. However, the arrival on the market of Quebec made products by large-scale enterprises changed the face of the market. From now on, crank style windows were easily available and affordable and metal doors began their era of glory.
To satisfy the demands of his customers, the company decided to concentrate its affairs towards distribution rather than manufacturing. In 1987, the company expanded once more. In spite of the success of the of this new business trend, the company continued to manufacture in its workshop specialty products, such as French traditional windows and personalized front doors.
Today, we still manufacture with the same passion as 50 years ago, that is why we use in our present production several types of woods which were never exploited in the past. The combining of several types of materials allows us to offer you a vast of range of products – ancestral, patrimonial, conventional and modern.
Our mission is to remain a manufacturing and distribution enterprise of exquisite quality doors and windows and its hardware along with other types of woodworking products.
