Julien has become synonymous with kitchens as its custom stainless steel products have made it a trusted name in homes, restaurants and industrial facilities. “Julien is a name that has been renowned for nearly 70 years and we are putting a lot of focus on getting closer to the customers by better promoting our branded products,” Executive Vice President Carl-David Belley says.
Leo T. Julien founded the Quebec-based company in 1946 while he was selling kitchen accessories to restaurants and saw there was a need for customized equipment in the industry. “Quebec is an old city,” Belley says. “There was a big condo project done recently that was in an old convent and I saw an original Julien kitchen in the basement with our old corporate logo and everything.”
