New President at South Shore Furniture
A big change for South Shore Furniture has recently taken place. Jean-Stéphane Tremblay has been appointed as the company’s new president and chief of operations. With numerous years of experience in management and retail, Tremblay is an important asset for the company, said a press release.
He succeeds Jean Laflamme, who now holds the position of chairman of the board and CEO. Laflamme will remain actively involved in the corporate decisions, but will also devote more time to projects with human values, such as mutual aid and skills development.
A leading Canadian manufacturer in the North American furniture industry, South Shore Furniture was established in 1940. The company produces assembled and ready-to-assemble bedroom (baby, juvenile, adult), home office, and entertainment centre furniture that combines quality and functionality with the latest styles, at affordable prices.
The three generations that have managed the company since it was founded have made South Shore Furniture synonymous with quality and product durability. South Shore Furniture employs over 850 people in two factories across Quebec, Canada, and operates a plant in Juarez, Mexico.
