Announcement Date: 1960

1960, year of founding of the home-building centre we know of today, marks the arrival of Gilles, Jean, Denis, Normand and Claudette, 5 of the 11 children born of Claude Forget and Bernadette Dubois. The 3rd generation takes control of the company in 1979, after Claude’s retirement. Claude passes away in 2002. From year to year, the family business undertakes several enlargements and changes, both at the sawmill and in the home building centre. In 1967, the latter becomes the 9th building materials centre to join the Dismat group.
