In 1997, Suzanne Auclair, raised from childhood in an entrepreneurial environment, created “STARR Inc.” Société des Technologies Appliquées en Ressources Renouvelables.
In 1999, Christian Perron joined up with Suzanne and they reinvented the solid wood panel; the MFC panel is made up of 100% solid wood veneered to yield an excellent added value product.
StarrForest comes on the scene and the founders make an agreement with a Finnish company to distribute their blockboard panel within Canada, a panel with the same characteristics as the STARR-MFC panel. In the pursuit of its activities, StarrForest also added the Russian birch veneer panel and other laminated wood products to its offerings.
STARRFOREST reinvented the jointed and glue laminated wood (glulam) plank for use by the scaffolding industry. Then the company added the glue-laminated post, an innovative product imported from Europe.
