Castle Announces Two New Locations In Quebec

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

Following the news of a new member location just days ago, Castle Building Centres Group announced today an additional two new locations, this time in the province of Quebec.

Quincaillerie Touraine, with locations in Gatineau and Cantley, is the newest independent to move away from the uncertainty of a competing banner, to the stability of Canada’s fastest growing buying group. The flagship location in Gatineau was established almost forty-five years ago, by the Lacroix family who added a second location in 2005, on a 10-acre footprint. Today, the family business is thriving and consists of two retail stores and large warehousing spaces. The family business is now owned and operated by Claude Lacroix, who is looking to take the business to a new level with continued growth.

“The business needed to be more competitive and have better profit margins. I was looking for a buying group that would give me that and one that was solid and transparent. This is the reason that I chose Castle” Claude Lacroix, Owner

Both locations include an extensive product assortment including lumber, building materials and hardware. Quincaillerie Touraine’s retail and contractor business has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. The company is looking forward to adding to their retail product offering with additional home improvement products and national brands through Castle’s buying power. The stores will celebrate their Grand Openings as Castle Building Centres in early Spring.

Castle President, Ken Jenkins recently commented on the new location. “We are pleased to welcome another successful and rapidly growing independent business to the Castle group. Keep your eyes on the province of Quebec; we are anticipating big changes in this region in 2017.”

Castle would like to welcome Claude Lacroix and the Quincaillerie Touraine staff to the family.
