DML: your expert in construction materials

DML (Distribution Matériaux Lavoie) is a company established in Gatineau that specializes in the sale of construction materials to general contractors and individuals, serving the entire Outaouais and Ottawa region, as well as all of eastern Ontario.

Founded by Gilles and Sébastien Lavoie in 2016

DML has given itself the primary mission of meeting the specific needs of construction contractors. To carry out this mission, the company first surrounded itself with a team of professionals: experts in construction materials, estimators, architectural technicians, sales consultants, delivery people, etc., all of whom were passionate, experienced people who took their jobs seriously.

A promosing future

Today, a few years later, this mission and this work philosophy have served DML and its contractor clients very well—not to mention all the individual clients, who are just as well-served. The company continues to grow, and DML is now the distributor for several merchants in both Quebec and Ontario. In addition, it now has a new division specializing in the manufacture of roof trusses: KSM Structure. DML is also building its third development phase, which will give it a surface area of over 760,000 ft.2, where it will be able to have a wider range of products and improve its inventory management, with the ultimate goal of constantly improving its customer service.

Always involved in our community

“When a community encourages us and lets us be successful in business, it’s essential to be able to give back.”

– Gilles Lavoie, president of DML

Gilles and Sébastien Lavoie, the owners of DML, have always been involved in their community, and over the past fifteen years, with the Gatineau Health Foundation via the Défi Ski, they have helped assist Dr. Forget’s pneumology clinic. Over the past years, Dr. Forget’s pneumology clinic has been able to raise more than one million in donations thanks to their involvement. Each year, DML also supports several other community organizations.
