The BarretteWood factory in Roberval joined the family in 2008 and has since excelled at processing value-added wood. The team applies its know-how to manufacture a wide range of products. From box spring components and furring strips to crating and packing materials and multipurpose lumber, every product meets the highest industry standards.
Ongoing investment considerably improves the performance of our operations while optimizing raw materials. Our cutting-edge installations meet every demand of our international clientele, down to the most specific.
« Our factory is exceptional because it’s versatile enough to satisfy our clients and help them out in an emergency. »
- Étienne L’Heureux, Factory Manager, Roberval
After we manufacture our products, we sell the by-products to a wide variety of industries. Our philosophy is simple: Be less wasteful and more efficient so we can reduce our environmental footprint.
BarretteWood’s greatest strength is optimizing the use of every piece of wood, in addition to manufacturing by-products. For example, the lumber kiln is powered only by waste from the wood processing mill. The factory also uses biomass to heat all 111,000 ft2 of the site’s buildings. This source of renewable energy has been the company’s pride for over a decade!
More than a hundred employees work at the site every day. The team has developed a shared synergy that makes their work the stuff of true team success.
« If I’d known how good it is to work here at BarretteWood, I would’ve joined the team a long time ago! »
- Gilles Tanguay, Lumber Yard Worker
Located halfway between Quebec City and the Nord-du-Québec region, Roberval is much more than a tourist town. Here you’ll find both the advantages of the city and the freedom of small-town living close to nature thanks to Roberval’s proximity to Lac-Saint-Jean and the Saguenay Fjord. In both summer and winter, there’s lots to do: hunting, fishing, ATV riding, cycling, swimming across the lake with the Traversée internationale du lac Saint-Jean, hitting the road with your bike for the Véloroute des Bleuets, festivals, the Zoo sauvage de Saint-Félicien… Living in Roberval means choosing quality of life in a region that’s proud of its roots!
