QUEBEC CITY – We are pleased to announce the merger of the operations of South Durham Casket with Victoriaville & Co. Located in Drummondville (Quebec) since its founding in 1960 by Charles-Edouard Dumont, today the company is chaired by Marc Dumont, his grandson, who joined the company in 1978 and has held various roles in the organization.
Under this partnership, South Durham’s products line will eventually be part of the Victoriaville & Co. portfolio offering. A progressive transition will take place over the next several months. Whereby, Victoriaville will take over the complete production, sales, and distribution of the products. This transition will be done smoothly to minimize the risk of any disruptions in products to our valued customers.
“Our association with Victoriaville & Co. will provide us with increased corporate support to continue to provide unparalleled service to our existing and future customers,” said Marc Dumont, President of South Durham Casket.
“We are very fortunate to be the supplier of choice of South Durham for many years. We are thrilled at the prospect of partnering with a company with such a rich history and an enviable reputation but also with people who share the same values of respect and integrity that are so important to us,” said Charles-Olivier Dumont, Vice President sales and business development at Victoriaville & Co.
“With this merger, we come full circle and I am delighted to welcome my cousin Marc with his casket expertise for a long-term period in our team,” added Alain Dumont, President and CEO of Victoriaville & Co.
