In 1917, Alexandre Roberge starts his enterprise very modestly in La Sarre, Abitibi-Témiscamingue. Skilled with his hands and passionate about work that is well done, he crafts wooden doors and windows by hand.
In 1950, Roberge becomes the most important company of its kind in Abitibi-Ouest. It is also in 1950 that Mr. Roberge’s son, Jean-Guy, then of the age of 20 years old, joins his father in the family business and buys it in 1960. Thanks to the same passion, he sets up a production line for doors and windows as well as a distribution network throughout the Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Northeastern Ontario regions. Towards the end of the 70s, the Roberge’s third generation joins the ranks. The two grandsons, Pierre and Gaétan, make the company benefit from the family know-how. Since then, the modernization of the doors and windows factory has made it possible to deliver a product that is always better suited to the rigors of the Québec climate.
Between 1999 and 2011, the company opens two sales branches: the first in Gatineau, then in Nepean. Today, the company contributes to the economy of Québec by creating more than 150 jobs.
In 2016, the enterprise was acquired by local entrepreneurs who have at their heart the local economy, the regional products as well as their greater asset: the staff, who every day performs remarkable work. A 4th generation of the Roberge family still works for the enterprise and Roberge is getting ready to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Roberge!
Roberge, already 100 years of passionate people!
To recall memories, we invite you to look at the articles and pictures published in the local newspapers on the 75th anniversary of the company (in french only).
