Artopex, a Quebec family business known for its innovative office furniture, has been developing green management and production systems for over 15 years!

The story of Artopex began in 1980 in Granby, when Daniel Pelletier and his brothers, Maurice and André, founded Pro-Meubles, a company specialized in the manufacture of laminated furniture. The first years are rather modest in terms of profit, but the three brothers quickly turn to acquisitions to support the growth of their company. Between 1987 and 1991, Pro-Meubles made three acquisitions. However, with the acquisition of Artopex Inc. in 1993, which at the time had 700 employees and sales of $58 million, the Pelletier family’s business took off. This acquisition transformed the family business and led the Pelletier brothers to rename it Artopex Plus. This change in the brand image allowed the company to make its entry into Canada and the United States. Over the years and through acquisitions, Artopex has developed a complete line of innovative and durable furniture while creating a solid distribution network throughout North America. As a proof of the quality of its products, the family business has received numerous honors while winning major contracts such as the one with the Montreal-Trudeau Airport or the Granby Hospital Center. Recently, for the 15th consecutive year, it was named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in a competition organized by Deloitte. For several years, Artopex has been developing management systems and environmental programs, including its ZERO 2X program (2010-2025). The company, which now has more than 865 employees and 6 automated and robotized plants, has just received more than $2 million in government support from the CED (Canada Economic Development) program to modernize its Granby plant. With this investment, the current managers, Martin and Francis Pelletier (HEC Montréal alumni) from the second generation, wish to develop a local economy that is both strong and green.
