Leading the way for 70 years
Permacon reinvents outdoor living!
A pioneer and growth leader, Permacon has been Canada’s largest manufacturer of concrete products for 70 years. The company manufactures pavers and slabs as well as bricks and stones.
Permacon’s values are integral to its success. The company carefully develops products with the user in mind, manufactures quality and durable products, cares for the environment, and provides its clients with great service.
With its 9 plants and over 400 employees working in its Quebec and Ontario facilities, Permacon caters to customers representing four market segments:
- Residential, institutional, commercial and industrial masonry products
- Alternative masonry products
- Residential, institutional, commercial, and industrial landscaping products
- Retail distribution—large retailers
With its evolving range of more than 700 masonry and landscaping products, Permacon helps diversify and beautify residential, institutional, commercial, and industrial outdoor environments.
Permacon is committed to producing its products locally to better serve its customers and reduce its environmental footprint.
With over 900 distribution points in Quebec, Ontario and the Atlantic provinces, Permacon is focused on one thing: providing great service to its clients.
Founded in Quebec in 1952 as Bloc Vibré Inc., the company merged with Les Industries Fortier Ltée in 1986, creating Groupe Permacon. From there, the company grew quite rapidly, thanks in part to a series of mergers and acquisitions.
In 2001, Permacon was purchased by Oldcastle Architectural, a world-leader in landscaping and masonry concrete product manufacturing. The company also oversees the distribution of DIY construction and landscaping products to large retailers. Oldcastle Architectural is part of CRH, a multinational building products company headquartered in Dublin, Ireland.
