The History of Morin Supply
In 1986, brothers Claude, Gerald and Daniel Morin founded Morin Bros. Building Supplies Inc. They were joined in those early days by their younger brother Gaston.
From a modest 4,800 square foot shop on Grenfell Crescent in Nepean, Morin Bros. grew into a major distributor of specialty construction products and materials across the National Capital Region. In 1993, we moved to our current location at 7 Tristan Court.
We’ve always invested in our people and their expertise and were the first to bring many speciality products to the Ottawa-Gatineau market. Homeowners, contractors, engineers and architects rely on us to source the products they need from the industry’s most respected manufacturers.
As the company has evolved and a new generation of Morins has stepped up to lead the team, our name and logo have changed too. Our new name, Morin Supply, retains our trusted family name while reflecting our inclusive corporate culture and the diversity of today’s construction industry. We’re still committed to the same values as the company’s founders, striving to ensure we serve each customer with excellence, passion and solutions. Our team’s extensive product knowledge, long-standing relationships, technical expertise and commitment to collaboration has made the Morin name synonymous with trust and reliability in the Ottawa-Gatineau market.
