    Among other things, Avenord markets alternative construction materials that it has manufactured entirely in Quebec. Its mission: to offer sustainable products to its customers and provide them with peace of mind through unparalleled service and consistent high quality.

    For the company, being a proud representative of “Well Made Here” is natural. Encouraging local buying benefits everyone, in addition, it establishes trust in relationships with people here. Having our products manufactured in Quebec allows us to ensure consistency in the quality that we provide to consumers.

    Bois Franc Sec, founded in 2018 and known by its acronym BFS, is a Lavaltrie, Quebec-based company that provides eco-responsible fuelwood products from cuts approved by the Quebec ministry that oversees the environment and climate change, the ministère de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques.

    More specifically, via a local logging company, mature trees collected with respect for Quebec flora and fauna, and are then transported by trucks fueled with natural gas in order to minimize the ecological footprint of the entire regional supply chain.

    “Participating in the “Well Made Here” program is part of our pride we take in promoting firewood originating from Quebec,” says Éric Dionne, President and CEO of Bois Franc Sec.
