Proud to be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2023, Finitec was founded in South Shore of Québec city, with a goal to do things differently.
At the origin of the first water-based performing finishes, which are now the most popular on the market, we focus on research and innovation to create products that are safe, accessible to professionals and individuals alike. Reinventing the flooring industry and that minimizing our impact on the environment.
With an ever-expanding range of products, including MicroConcrete and acoustic and thermal membranes, our products can now be found throughout North America in hardware stores, paint stores and through flooring specialists.
Our story begins in 1993.
It all starts with Raynald Rioux. As the owner of wood flooring stores, Raynald had two ambitions: to develop a complete line of products for the maintenance and restoration of floors, and to create the first water-based performaning finish. His goal was to create a product that was much more effective in its application. For many, this innovation seemed completely crazy. Some even tried to convince him to give up, but Raynald will succeed.
In 1995, Finitec develops a range of cleaning products, which marks the beginning of many collaborations with the largest players in the industry in North America.
With a renewed focus on research and development, a new branch of the company was created in 2000: AcoustiTECH, a division specialized in the manufacture of soundproofing membranes, intended for the owners of multi unit housing and their tenants.
Over the years, all the members of his family, including his wife Chantal and his children Marc, Caroline, and André, joined the adventure. It is Marc who will take over the helm of the company as president and CEO in 2010. A few years later, in 2018, Marc, along with his brother André and Vincent Moreau, both sales managers of AcoustiTECH, will become full owners of the company.
What we are committed to
Whether it’s through research and development or internal initiatives, reconsidering our methods to reduce our carbon footprint has been a priority since the very beginning. In addition to producing water-based finishes, here's how we do more:
- Participation in the Eco-Peinture program (recycling of our finishing containers)
- Establishment of a local purchasing policy with suppliers
- Development of refill products (to avoid purchasing new containers)
- Installation of an LED lighting system
- Creation of a community garden
