Mercier FlooringMontmagny, Quebec —As of May 27, 2022, Sébastien Mercier and Jean-Philippe Dumas, sons of Richard Mercier and Marielle Mercier, respectively, officially took over from their parents as the new business owners of Mercier Wood Flooring. The new owners, who have worked in the family business for over 12 years, will continue to be supported by Richard Mercier, former owner, vice president and general manager who now holds the role of company president.

This position was previously held by his sister, Marielle Mercier, until she retired in June. Sébastien Mercier, vice president of operations, and Jean-Philippe Dumas, vice president of sales and marketing, said they are both very proud and optimistic about the opportunities that lie ahead. “Continuing the work of our grandfather and our parents is a great honor and a mission we take very seriously,” Mercier and Dumas said. “Mercier Wood Flooring is a large team of nearly 300 employees. It’s also a vertically integrated company with two plants located in Montmagny and Drummondville, Quebec, that handle all operations, from sawing logs and processing wood into floorboards to finishing and delivering products to hundreds of retailers across Canada and the U.S.”

The two business owners said they intend to continue developing their brand on hardwood’s solid foundation. “It’s up to us and the entire team to continue growing the business by listening to our customers’ needs and making the most of this rich natural resource that has sparked so many innovations over the past 40 years,” Mercier and Dumas said.
