On December 4th & 5th, 2013, roughly two dozen Québec companies – manufacturers, producers and suppliers of hardware, home improvement and construction related goods and equipment as well as food & beverage products – will be visiting Menards’ headquarters in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. This hardware and home-improvement store chain has 289 stores across the Midwest, an ideal distributor for the visiting Québec companies.
This activity is organized by the Québec Government Office in Chicago, along with Développement PME Chaudière-Appalaches, a Québec organization that works to support small- to medium-sized manufacturing companies in the Chaudière-Appalaches region.
In November of last year, the Québec Government Office in Chicago and Développement PME Chaudière-Appalaches organized similar visits to hardware and home improvement co-ops Do it Best Corp. (Fort Wayne, IN) and Ace Hardware International (Oak Brook, IL). This activity was very successful and factored in the decision to repeat the visit, this time at Menard’s.
