Groupe Lacasse is a North American leader in the design, manufacture and service of a broad range of high-quality furniture products for all types of business and institutional environments.
The company has the experience, expertise and capability to deliver incomparable design, exceptional quality, optimum service and outstanding value.
Founded in 1956 by the Lacasse brothers in Saint-Pie, Groupe Lacasse is often referred to a jewel of its industry.
In 2012, the company was bought back from Haworth by Sylvain Garneau, president since 2010, and by a group of Canadian investors. This group includes Guy Lacasse, founder, along with Robin Lacasse, his son.
“It’s an historic turning point for the company” said Sylvain Garneau, President of the Board and Chief Executive Officer since the acquisition. “Our team is proud to return to its roots. We hope this transaction will allow us to build on the positive momentum we have been developing.”
Almost a year later, big news confirmed the words of Sylvain Garneau. In March 2013, Groupe Lacasse obtained a 3.4 million dollar contract to furnish the future buildings of the new University of Montreal Hospital Research Center. In September 2013, the company announced the award of another important project in the healthcare segment to furnish the buildings of the new McGill University Health Center. With a net value of more than $ 4 million, the MUHC contract has become the biggest project ever undertaken by Groupe Lacasse.
Well-known for the unmatched durability and reliability of its products, Groupe Lacasse is the benchmark in laminate office furniture. The collections from its Lacasse brand have earned an impressive number of prestigious prizes. From Best of NeoCon to Grands Prix du design awards, its recognition from the industry is crystal clear. The company also distributes panel-based system furniture under the Nvision brand, commercial chairs under the United Chair brand, and modular soft seating under the Arold brand which was proudly acquired by Groupe Lacasse in September 2013.
