Our History

HUNTER BRAND was founded in 1863 and established itself in Montreal in 1934. 

Drawing on his experience as an employee of HUNTER BRAND, Paul Dardel decided to start his own company in 1947.  He was so successful that by 1949 he acquired HUNTER BRAND. He remained as owner and director until his death in 1978. 

His sons, Andre and Jean and Jean’s wife, Renée, already long-time administrators of the company carried on the tradition  of quality and excellence.  Stéphane and Denis, sons of Jean and Renée joined the team a few years later and have largely contributed to the growth and expansion of the company.

Paul Dardel would be very proud:  his company has come a long way!

The Dardel family works with a wonderfully dynamic team that draws on the talent and energy of everyone to  ensure the success of the company and to offer matchless service to its customers.
