The power... of renovation!
In 1967, in Quebec, a small group of lumber and building material dealers maximized their buying power by pooling their purchases. Union-six was born! Less than a year later, a dozen members became partners and Union-six changed for Groupe B.M.R. inc, which stands for Building Material, Lumber, and Renovation .
In 1974, Groupe B.M.R. inc entered into a strategic alliance with some similar groups in Ontario and Western Canada. The purpose was evident: to increase the buying volume and to offer savings of scale to their dealers/members.
