A beautiful story of a family passionate about recycling

The Lanctôt family was avant-garde in environmental matters



Jean Lanctôt creates the Montreal Dairy Exchange, The company specialized in the sale and purchase of glass bottles used in the pharmaceutical and milk industries.


Jean Lanctôt purchases a warehouse which used to be… an icebox! The Montreal Dairy Exchange settles into 6327 Clark in Montreal, where it will remain until the year 2000.


Simon Lanctôt, Jean’s brother, joins the ranks of the company as Director.


The company, requiring more and more space, acquires the adjacent building to the North.


The arrival of plastic as the primary material for containers and packaging threatens the company’s survival. The dairy industry adopts flat cardboard and plastic bags for milk containers. Little by little, the Montreal Dairy Exchange transfers its activities away from bottles and towards the recuperation of used cardboard boxes, therefore becoming Montreal Box Trading Enr.


A few machines are added to lend a hand to the men in the warehouse – notably, to tie the boxes, a task which had previously been performed by hand. It was normal to have to tie up then discharge entire wagons full of boxes arriving all the way from Winnipeg by rail!


Montreal Box Trading Enr. becomes Cartonnerie MontréalTM Enr.


Simon Lanctôt and his 2 sons, Marc and Guy, purchase the company, which then becomes Cartonnerie Montréal Inc.


Guy and Marc Lanctôt take over the company when their father (and associate) Simon opts to begin his hard earned retirement.


The used boxes market is considerably transformed. Many companies adopt better structured systems to recover recyclables and re-usables, generating an important increase in used boxes, which then arrive more regularly. The warehouse on Clark no longer suits the demand. An important decision must be made…


Having studied several alternatives, the chosen solution is to build a new warehouse and new offices in the heart of Montreal. The Lanctôt brothers find a rare lot, located on De Liège West.


La Cartonnerie settles into it’s new offices, at 300 De Liège West: a 30 000 square foot warehouse, a showroom, a vast service counter, and specially tailored offices. Cartonnerie Montréal can now focus on serving our customers better than ever!
