Bardobec was founded in 1985, in Saint-Adalbert, by Langis Anctil and Dominique Vaillancourt.

In 1995, the owners acquired the Caman sawmill, specialized in the same line of production as Bardobec, and moved their operations to Daaquam (Saint-Just-de-Bretenières), a highly strategic location, situated just next to the American border.

From 1996 to 1997, important investments were made in the sawmill, including the addition of 4 cedar shingle machines to the 7 already in place.

In 2000, a warehouse was built to store finished products prior to distribution, such as squares of cedar shingles and bags of mulch.

In January 2004, the company increased the size of its mulch production facilities following the signing of an agreement with an important distributor. The annual production of cedar mulch has almost doubled since this date.

A year later, at the beginning of 2005, another significant investment was made in order to increase annual mulch production. This new equipment will make it possible to meet the increasing demand for cedar mulch in the years to come.

Ever since the company was founded, Bardobec's management team has paid particular attention to compliance with environmental standards. We are justly proud of the fact that each cedar that is cut down is used in its entirety in the manufacture of our products.
