We are active in Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces.

At Normand, our main objective is to develop and maintain a long term relationship with our business partners. Tomorrow’s success depends not only on new concepts and innovative ideas, but also on a closer partnership between the various stakeholders. 

We are convinced that the supplier - distributor – end user relationship is not only important, but must also be dynamic and complementary in order to develop appropriate solutions to the needs of everyone. Success for one is now measured by the success of others! This is the strategy for winners and it is part of our commitment to offering products and services that meet the needs of the future. 

 

A word from the boss 

Holidays like no other! (20-07-01)

This year, we didn't see the spring go by. Caught in the turmoil of the covid, our attention and concerns were focused on this invisible and devious virus that we continue to tame.

Habits such as washing our hands more often, keeping our distance and, occasionally, wearing a mask may be part of our daily lives for a long time to come. 

The media point this out and the Boss confirms it, for most of us this summer, holidays will take place at home. He had noticed a phenomenal increase in traffic on his website during the confinement and is now pleasantly surprised to also note a very marked increase in store visits following the deconfinement. It seems that the holiday budget will partially turn into a DIY budget.

So be careful in your work; be also vigilant in your travels and take advantage of the summer to take holidays like no other...
