On January 31st, 2019, faucet manufacturer Bélanger-UPT decided to break the winter’s cold by opening its doors for the unveiling of a new grand showroom. Throughout the day guests from the industry visited the offices in the Montreal borough of Ville Saint-Laurent, located at 6520 Abrams Street, to enjoy a glass of champagne and a variety of hors d’oeuvres. Visitors checked out the new product selection and interacted with Bélanger employees.
Founded by Gérald Bélanger in 1966, the company introduced its first line of faucets in 1986. It was purchased by Keeney Manufacturing, which is headquartered in Newington, CT, in 1993. It launched the Quik and H2Flo faucet brands in 2007, as well as its PlumbPak program which was customized for Lowe’s Canada (PlumbPak cards have been available since 2013). In 2010, the Essential faucets brand was revamped.
Bélanger-UPT has three manufacturing plants in North America and Asia.
