Our story

1947
Our story begins with the founding of Victor Woolens by William Duval, the grandfather of current Duvaltex president Alain Duval.

Innovation and resource optimization are central principles of the company vision and operating model from the start—as they still are today.

Committed to the environment and resource optimization

Victor has been recycling since day one. Each day is an opportunity to help protect the environment and convert waste fabric into usable product. Only a very small proportion of the fabric manufactured by Victor will eventually end up in the waste stream. Building on employee initiatives, Victor has forged partnerships with various organizations to give fabric a second life. In some cases, unused fabric and scraps are reused in everything from handwoven rugs to children's clothing. For every 100 lb. of fabric produced, 2 lbs. end up in a landfill.
