The vision of a family
Wishing to support the vision of his older brothers Daniel and Pierre, Jean Marchand joined them in making a window to satisfy consumers at the time. In 1989, Fenplast saw the light of day in the industrial park of Delson, on Montreal’s South Shore, in a modest space of 8,000 square feet, and only made PVC casement windows. Goal: To provide specialty retailers with high-quality PVC windows that are easy to install and among the most energy efficient.
First growth spurt
In 1994, to meet the endless demand, the Marchand trio invested heavily in equipment, tools and advanced technologies to extrude window profiles according to their own designs and specifications.
Integration is the key
In 2002, a major two-year investment plan was announced to triple floor space, add production equipment and meet the growing demand for colour products, resulting in a paint chamber with state-of-the-art drying equipment. In addition, Fenplast completed its vertical integration by acquiring the equipment necessary to manufacture sealed units.
Doors are being opened
In 2004, Jean Marchand becomes the President and CEO of Pomatek, a steel door company with an excellent reputation. Gradually, Pomatek became part of Fenplast, becoming the group’s Steel Door division.
The largest plant
The year 2011 was a milestone for the company, it signaled the launch of a sliding door entirely made from a new generation of PVC: the CaloPatio, which was a resounding success! Integration of new products meant that, in 2012, Fenplast moved to a new 225,000 sq. ft. plant in Candiac to increase efficiency in all sectors and in logistics. It thus became the largest windows and doors factory in Quebec!
Jean Marchand at the helm
In 2014, Jean Marchand took full control of Fenplast as its controlling shareholder.
Best managed in Canada

A youth cure
After having the same look for several years, in 2017 Fenplast rebranded its image. The creative agency lg2 is behind its transformation. The new look is a complete success and the promotional campaigns accompanying it propel it to new heights.
