Our company is now managed by the second and third generations of the Bernier family. Yvon, son of founders Maurice Bernier and Rita Lepage, feels like it’s “mission accomplished” when he looks back over all he’s done with the family business over the last 35 years. He is particularly proud of how his sons, Benoît and Sylvain, have managed things since coming on board in 2009.
Known for our years of experience in the industry, our team continues to grow. Over the years we have built up a strong distribution network in Quebec, Ontario, and many U.S. states. After a 12-year absence, we are back in the Quebec City area with a new store on Avenue des Replats, called Bernier Kitchens.
We at Bernier are proud of our reputation for family values like respect, loyalty, and honesty in all things. These values explain why most members of the Bernier team have been with us for over 12 years. Our most senior factory worker has been with Bernier for over 45 years!
1. Deeper Cabinets-Our upper cabinets are 13.5 inches deep so our customers have more space for large items like square plates—a popular item in modern kitchens.
2.Thick Shelves-All our cabinet shelves are ¾ inch thick to ensure better weight distribution. This keeps them from sagging in the center, meaning they stand up well to heavy pots and pans and last longer.
3. Quality Hinges- Bernier cabinet doors are attached using state-of-the-art BLUM Austria-designed hinges that stand the test of time, even with large or heavy doors. No more ruined hinges! Welcome to the next level in luxury—hardware with a lifetime warranty.
4. Silent Sliding Drawers-A North American exclusive, our drawers roll on Hettich runners for ultimate stability. Built-in shocks make closing easy—all it takes is a light push. Even filled to the brim, these drawers stand the test of time and continue to slide softly and silently. DONT WORRY, WE OFFER BLUM TOO!
5. Cabinets Built To Last-Our cabinets are assembled with glue and dowels for extra durability. The cabinet backs are ½ inch thick and set slightly back so they will be perfectly straight even if your walls aren’t. Our bottom cabinets are completely closed on top to provide more strength, and can be used as a temporary work top until your counters arrive.
