One of the most dynamic SME in Lachute, Les Portes A.R.D. is a family owned and run business that was founded in 1982. Manufacturing interior doors at first, the company got involved in the steel door industry in 1984 where it experienced remarkable growth.


Over the years, the company has continued to diversify its products to meet an ever growing customer base. In 1997 PVC windows are added to the products offered to our consumers. Be it for new construction or renovation, we offer a wide range of doors and windows to meet all of our customers needs.


In 2003 Les Portes A.R.D. inaugurated its new factory in the heart of Lachute's industrial park, leaving a 10 000 square foot building for 40 000 square foot of production floor. In 2007 a state of the art automated window assembly line was installed.


With the goal of becoming more self-reliant, a complete paint shop was added to our factory in 2009. In 2012 an extension was needed for the factory to meet our customers ever growing needs. The factory has a 57 000 square foot surface area.


In 2014 a cutting edge automated steel door assembly line was installed. The acquisition of this new assembly line allows us to respond to the growing demand in a shorter period of time, all the while maintaining the high quality of our products that our customers have come to expect.


In 2021, given the strong demand which did not cease increasing in the steel door, the company was faced with an important decision to be made which is to stop manufacture of the PVC window to concentrate on the production of the steel door. The door being our area of expertise since the beginning of business of the company with more than 39 years of existence. A second robotic door line was therefore installed to increase production capacity and meet the demand of our growing customer base.
