Théo Mineault Inc., a company manufacturing doors, windows and kitchen cabinets, is the creation of a man who wished to make his own way in the world.
While still a young carpenter, Théo Mineault founded his company in 1952 when he started making wooden windows in his small workshop. The quality of the windows soon meant that orders were coming in faster than he could make them. Before long, he had hired employees and moved into larger premises to supply the growing demand. In 1954, he added custom kitchens to his windows.
On October 24, 1963, the plant was completely destroyed by a fire that also consumed a very large inventory of valuable materials and products. There wasn't enough insurance to cover the losses. But Théo was not to be defeated by a quirk of fate; with the patience and understanding of his suppliers, he carried on in temporary quarters while rebuilding his plant. By the fall of 1964, Théo Mineault Inc. was again fully operational in new premises on highway 148 in Masson-Angers, Quebec.
Théo's four sons began to apprentice in the company during the 1970s and continued working together for many years. Clearly, Théo passed on his passion for business to his sons.
Besides the Gatineau (Masson-Angers area) showroom adjacent to the manufacturing plant, Théo Mineault Inc. has two other showrooms and sales offices: on St-Joseph Boulevard, in Gatineau (Hull area) and on Merivale, in Nepean.
Théo Mineault Inc. employs some 35 people in its plant and offices, as well as four installation crews. The company provides a kitchen cabinet design service, as well as the sale and installation of kitchen cabinets.
