Julien Inc. numbers over 350 employees, including engineers, designer drafters, technicians, tinsmiths, polishers, and computer specialists at the company’s headquarters and production plants totaling 170,000 square feet (18,000 m2).
Founded by Léo T. Julien in 1946, Julien Inc. began by selling kitchen accessories to restaurants. Noting their need for custom equipment, Léo T. Julien opened a plant and ran it until his death in 1973.
In 1978, the management team added a new plant to keep up with the company’s rapid growth. In 1986, Julien Inc. successfully developed the subcontracting market. Subsequent years were marked by design and management computerization and production automation.
In 1995, current president Gilles St-Pierre and six other company executives acquired Julien Inc. The new management focused on developing its activity sector and its North American and international markets. Integrating noble materials such as wood, marble, granite, and slate into sheet metal products is now a reality and a winning strategy not only for Julien Inc., but also for its commercial and industrial clients.
In 2003, Julien Inc. launched its Home Refinements line, an innovative range of distinctive and prestigious residential products for the kitchen and bathroom.
Now the industry leader in North America, Julien Inc. proudly serves a host of major companies, including Desjardins, National Bank, Laurentian Bank, Familiprix pharmacies, Racine pharmacies and discount centers, Pizza Hut, Electrolux, Steris, General Electric Appliances, Whirlpool/Inglis, Hardt, Hobart, Cadexair, Casino de Montréal, Nortel, Cisco, Yale University, MBNA Canada, Bombardier, Amtrak, Prévost Car, Stitches boutiques, and Laura Secord stores.
