Our History

A PASSION FOR WOOD

Lauzon Hardwood is the materialization of the dream and vision David Lauzon had in 1985, as a young man walking the woods of the Outaouais region north-east of Montreal, in Quebec, Canada.

From a small initial investment of a few thousand dollars, the company has grown to become a North American leader in supplying homeowners, designers, builders, and wood specialists with premium product.

Lauzon is still a family-run company deeply rooted in the Canadian forest. It is vertically integrated from forest to finished products, operates the largest hardwood sawmill in North America, and counts on a team of 500 passionate and dedicated people to responsibly harvest Canadian timber and transform it from logs to lumber to become quality wood flooring, high energy wood pellets or prime raw material for the furniture industry.

ECO-RESPONSIBLE SOURCING

Lauzon was born in an era of heightened environmental awareness. At its founding, Lauzon was committed to building a hardwood enterprise ready for the challenges of a sustainable future. That meant incorporating responsible and sustainable stewardship practices, from sourcing through recycling and reusing. Green is not just a color at Lauzon, it is part of our value system.

From Forest to Floor

Through our fully integrated operation, we have built a business that is at the forefront of sustainable forest management and stewardship. Full integration begins with the forest lots that we manage and continues in our sawmill, and in our hardwood finishing plants.

CERTIFICATION

Responsible Sourcing

When you choose a Lauzon floor you can take comfort in knowing that our policies are designed to protect the forest for generations to come. Whether Canadian or imported, we only choose wood sourced from sustainably managed forests.

As a testimony to the environment and the well-being of our forest, we have developed a zero-waste program by recycling all wood residues to produce wood pellets, the cleanest form of energy. Our commitment also extends to the finishes we apply on our floors which are eco-friendly and exempt of formaldehyde, VOCs, and solvents.

Choosing an Expert floor, it is choosing to help preserve our natural resources for future generations. As all our floors come from sustainably managed forest, are legally sourced and comply with the US Lacey Act.
