Formica Canada invites consumers to research Well Made Here products and logo

Formica Canada is proud to be part of the Well Made Here local purchasing program that showcases Canadian-made hardware and residential building materials.

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada, May 11, 2020 – This program, launched by the AQMAT (Quebec Hardware and Building Materials Association), helps customers to identify, with the Well Made Here logo, the products made in Canada in hardware stores and home improvement centers across the country. The ici-here.ca website makes available a large catalogue of products made in Canada and provides information on where to buy them, who to contact for construction work, and how to access promotional offers.

"Our Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu plant, in which more than 250 employees work, has been in operation for more than 60 years to produce a wide variety of Formica brand laminates and specialty products," said Johanne Levesque, Marketing Director at Formica Canada. "This is why we are very proud to be part of the growing movement to buy locally, to support local manufacturers and stimulate our economy. The Well Made Here program allows consumers to discover quality products that can improve their living environment and are made in Canada by reliable manufacturers.” 

Consumers can purchase Formica products in hardware stores and home improvement centers across Canada including Lowe’s, RONA and The Home Depot.

Encouraging local buying promotes the creation and maintenance of quality jobs in our businesses, stimulates research and innovation, and contributes to the creation of wealth and the well-being of our communities. By choosing local products, consumers develop direct relationships with manufacturers, ensure they have quality products and can help improve the characteristics of the products they are looking for, while supporting economic growth in their region.
