In 1972, Jacques Ménard joined the family business and decided in 1975 to launch an organization essentially for manufacturing and distributing doors and windows under the corporate name of “Dalmen Products Ltd”.
This began the construction of a modern day factory perfectly located at exit 51 off highway 417. The company attributes their accomplishments to the well-equipped plant, but principally to a qualified staff that is dedicated to the success of the company; some of which have been here since the beginning.
1984 marked the beginning of the vinyl evolution as a major component in the manufacturing of windows. In the beginning, vinyl was used as an exterior cladding on wood windows and doors that then lead to the fabrication of the vinyl frame. It is towards 1994 that Dalmen developed its first complete vinyl windows–the Comfort Series. With this arrived new machines to cut and weld the vinyl that made it possible for this industry to acknowledge a decade of changes and improvements without leaving behind its history.
Proud of its heritage and always searching for new products and techniques, Dalmen is known as an evolutionary pioneer in the industry. In 2000, Dominic Alary, a recent graduate of Polytechnique School in Industrial Engineering joined the team.
Dominic implemented a very modern technique of production; the development of new windows and the advantages of aluminum, vinyl and wood; new methods of marketing techniques and guided Dalmen skillfully to new heights. He quickly became general manager of the company and an important shareholder in 2005.
Since, the industry of doors and windows is continually changing, Dalmen takes pride in always modernizing their manufacturing process and products. With excelling in their modernization, Dalmen Window and Doors takes pride in saying all their products are ENERGY STAR® certified. They are located just outside of Ottawa, located at exit 51, off highway 417.
