Castle Building Centres Group continues their growth across Canada.

The second independent member location to join the Castle Building Centres Group this year; Matériaux St Étienne of Saint-Étienne-de-Lauzon; a district within the city of Levis, Québec has been serving the local community for over 30 years and comes to Castle from the Home Hardware banner.

“Independents looking for a buying group that gives them the freedom to run their business their way and be true independents, without any forced fidelity, are looking to Castle. We are pleased to welcome Matériaux St Étienne to the Castle group and this move further reinforces the fact that Castle is quickly becoming the bilingual buying group of choice to francophone independents in the Quebec region.”
Ken Jenkins; President, Castle Building Centres Group.

The existing 6,000 square foot retail space which is currently under expansion sits on two hectares of land and is the site of a drive through warehouse totalling over 30,000 square feet. The business was acquired last year by entrepreneurs Amaury Sauer and Hélène Stichelbout who are excited about this new endeavour and the newly designed 10,000 square foot Castle branded store that will be completed by early spring. The retail store is staffed by over 25 employees and is a full service lumber, building materials and hardware operation with a complete service truck fleet to meet the needs of their growing customer base.

“Materiaux St Etienne is a great addition to the Quebec network of Castle locations and we are proud to include this enthusiastic entrepreneur within our membership base.”
Robert Legault; Business Development Manager; Quebec & Northern New Brunswick

Partners Blake Agnew; former Chairman of the LBMAO and Jamie Grierson, who manages the roofing division are looking forward to the transition to Castle and this new phase for Harold and Goetz. The Castle Building Centres location will be served by over twenty-five experienced staff members specializing in sales and service of lumber, building materials, roofing, window and door products as well as expert installation services.

Castle welcomes Matériaux St Étienne to the Castle family.
