Victoriaville & Co. Inc. is the third-largest wooden casket manufacturer in North America and has continued to grow. Many caskets sold in the USA are produced in Mexico or China. However, increased shipping costs and delays have created an opportunity for onshoring. Victoriaville is currently headquartered in Québec, Canada, and has determined the need to expand operations into the U.S. to be closer to its supply chain and expand its customer base in the U.S.
This manufacturing addition to our existing capacity has become necessary to support the company's sustained growth by expanding its workforce, simplifying its supply chain, and specializing all three manufacturing plants.
