  1. Cascades

    Founded in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products composed mainly of recycled fibres. Cascades employs more than 11,000 men and women in more than 100 modern, versatile operating units in North Amercica and Europe. Long before the expression "sustainable development" became a buzzword, the Lemaire family's means of livelihood was recycling, thanks to the Drummond Pulp & Fibre company involved in the recovery of household and industrial waste, which they founded in 1957. In 1964, Antonio Lemaire and his sons officially ventured into the production of paper made from recycled fibres when they took over a disaffected mill in Kingsey Falls, owned by the Dominion Paper Co.. Papier Cascades Inc. was born of that transaction. In 1971, Cascades began its expansion in Kingsey Falls with the creation of Cascades Forma-Pak, its first moulded-pulp mill to use 100% recycled fibres. The event marked the beginning of a veritable paper-making corporation in a small town in the center of Québec from 1972 to 1977: the successive start-up of Papier Kingsey Falls, Cascades Industries, Plastiques Cascades and Cascades Conversion.
