Hello, it’s a great day to start a project.
“It is the community that makes us grow, that makes us stronger and that allows us to offer a service that truly stands out.”
-Simon Bouchard, Président d’Ateliers Jacob
Founded in 1987, Ateliers Jacob began as a specialized cabinetmaker in the town of Saint-Calixte.
In the beginning, the company specialized in the manufacturing of kitchen tables and special furniture. With time, Ateliers Jacob was able to perfect its skills and acquire new ones, this leading to the company’s creating outstanding kitchens.
With perseverance and dedication, the Ateliers Jacob family has built an excellent reputation in the field of construction and design. This has earned them an enviable position in the manufacturing of kitchens in Quebec. The initial vision of the company, shared by the next generation, has succeeded in making the brand thrive and stand out in the Quebec market.
From a very young age, Simon Bouchard was fascinated by the company founded by his parents. From humble beginnings as a helper in the factory on various projects, he advanced to become the president of Ateliers Jacob. With his passion for his work, Simon Bouchard has never stopped pushing his limits.
Since becoming president, he has been able to propel the company further in the Quebec market and even break into other North American markets. Through numerous acquisitions, Ateliers Jacob now has several branches in the greater Montreal area, resulting in the company becoming a leader in kitchen design and manufacturing in Quebec.
The reason behind the vision of bringing together the various major players in Quebec is that, together, the companies operating under the Ateliers Jacob banner would become the most recognized brand in North America.
In 2011, Ateliers Jacob opened a branch in the city of Calgary to open further the Western Canadian market through a partnership with Marie-France Lyras. With this partnership, Ateliers Jacob has sought out the unique style that it brings to its creations, projecting an image that is both sublime and timeless.
Since then, quite a large number of exceptional kitchens have been built in Calgary. This opening allowed Ateliers Jacob’s mission and vision to be showcased for the first time outside of Quebec. For Simon Bouchard, it was a huge step towards achieving his dream of “being the most recognized brand in North America.”
In 2017, Ateliers Jacob acquired Tendances Concept to expand its business and begin a new chapter in its history.
Founded in 1979, Tendances Concept represents over 40 years of expertise in the field. Beginning with the manufacturing of residential, commercial, and institutional kitchen modules, the company has succeeded in distinguishing itself in the design of high-end kitchens over time.
The founders, Robert Sigouin and Denis Cadieux, joined by shareholder Diane Commerford in 2004, are all passionate about kitchen design, and have raised Tendances Concept’s reputation to being one of the biggest players in Quebec.
The acquisition of Calacor by Tendances Concept was a turning point for the company. It allowed Tendances Concept to have a second 65,000 sq. ft. plant, which greatly increased its production capacity.
At the end of 2019, Ateliers Jacob acquired Cuisirama, a company located in Assomption. Cuisirama was the first company to offer modular kitchens in Quebec. With nearly 50 years of expertise in the field, Cuisirama brought a considerable advantage to Ateliers Jacob, with its 64,000 sq. ft. plant.
This acquisition allowed the company to increase its business volume and further penetrate the American market. It also allowed Ateliers Jacob to establish itself strongly in Florida as well as have a presence in other American states.
During 2019, Ateliers Jacob made its debut in the U.S. market through sales outlets located mainly in Florida. This new beginning was a turning point for Ateliers Jacob in marketing the company in the United States.
From this central point of sale, the local team was able to highlight the added value of Ateliers Jacob kitchens in the Florida network. The “Ateliers Jacob” name now has its own market share outside of Quebec and brand recognition is growing every day.
Ateliers Jacob, always on the lookout for new partnerships that bring value to the company, acquired the company “MaCucina” and became its main manufacturer/supplier.
This kind of service, the Business To Business model, allows many local businesses to receive the assistance of Ateliers Jacob as a manufacturer/supplier. This new business strategy offers a distinct advantage to the many companies wishing to advance in the kitchen design market.
Ateliers Jacob continues its expansion in the United States with representatives who project the unique brand image that has made the company so successful. Ateliers Jacob is proud to now be part of the Virginia market.
This is Ateliers Jacob’s latest market share. This growth is accomplished by the company’s daily efforts to create beautiful Ateliers Jacob projects.
