MONTREAL, March 9, 2017 — Today, Atis Group (hereafter “Atis”) announced the acquisition of Groupe Racine, a proud windows and doors retailer established over 40 years ago on Montreal’s North Shore. This transaction follows the recent acquisitions of Groupe Astral, Portes et Fenêtre J.M. Ferron, and Vitrerie Lévis.
A family business founded in 1973 by Jean-Luc Racine, Groupe Racine made its mark over the years by providing customers with personalized service and high quality products to meet their every need. Supported by his children and family, Jean-Luc Racine truly cared about his customers and their projects, and focused on bringing his clients peace of mind by offering exceptional customer service, expert advice, and turnkey solutions.

“The partnership with Atis Group falls in with what the Racine family has built for over 40 years: unique and exclusive products and services suited to the tastes and needs of our clientele.
