The Extension Of Our Customers’ Aspirations
“The kitchen is the nerve centre of the house; a kitchen designed according to your lifestyle will meet your needs, maximize the space available and facilitate your work as a chef.”
This philosophy governs the design principles behind Christian Marcoux cuisine et mobilier design’s work. They see themselves as more than a kitchen manufacturer; instead as the extension of their customers’ aspirations.
In 2001, the company’s founder, Christian Marcoux, opened his cabinetmaking workshop in St-Isadore, QC. Surrounded by great colleagues, associates, and suppliers and encouraged by numerous clients, he has since completed thousands of diversified projects in the commercial and residential sectors. Since its inception, the company has specialized in designing, manufacturing, and installing kitchen and bathroom cabinets, custom furniture, and architectural cabinetry. The company aims to create a living space adapted to its customers’ reality, tastes, and budgets. The results speak for themselves.
Christian Marcoux cuisine et mobilier design has regularly enjoyed seeing its efforts recognized. Since 2011, it has been a finalist 12 times and a winner seven times at the APCHQ’s Nobilis Awards. The criteria for the Nobilis Awards include quality of construction and design, integration into the environment, technical features and constraints, and value for money. The company has also been recognized regionally by the Nouvelle-Beauce Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the greater Quebec City and Chaudière-Appalaches regions through their exceptional business performance. These acknowledgments are a great source of pride for the company, especially because they provide great visibility and motivate its employees to surpass themselves every day.
A cabinetmaker by trade, Marcoux makes it a point of honour to deliver projects worthy of artisanal cabinetmaking using a technological formula. He strongly believes that technology must be available to the cabinetmaker to innovate, not to create assembly-line products. Marcoux is always on the lookout for new things and new trends. He travels the world to get inspiration and introduce innovative ways of doing things into his business, a definite advantage for his customers searching for renewal. Most recently, Marcoux, along with Design Director and Associate Carol-Anne Vachon, flew to Orlando to attend KBIS, allowing them to offer their customers difference, diversity, and exceptional product quality.
“After all the work accomplished, I see that the small company of yesterday has become the one of today because of the knowledge, the know-how, and the expertise of all the members who compose it,” said Marcoux. “I am extremely proud and grateful.”
In the coming years, the company aims to develop new markets, which would allow for constant growth while maintaining a good work-family balance, a priority for the entrepreneur. The team plays a crucial role in achieving the company’s objectives, and the well-being of employees is of paramount importance to Christian Marcoux. This is why a work environment that values professional and personal growth, competitive compensation, and recognition of each team member are fundamental values of the company.
This approach has clearly worked in their favour, as the company has grown exponentially in the past few years. The next stage in their growth is a significant expansion to their current workspace. Recently, the company acquired an additional 93,000 feet of land to continue its development. This acquisition was essential to expand their current building and welcome new employees. Since then, the company has shared several job posts for various positions, from estimators to showroom hosts, designers, and project managers. This all comes after a very full 2021, which includes the doubling of the factory’s surface area, the purchase of numerous pieces of machinery, and the arrival of several new employees.
“Since 2001, our team has been working hard to be recognized as a leader in its sector for the quality of its products while keeping in mind what is most important to us at the end of the day; the satisfaction of our customers and all our employees.”
