About us

Who are we

Our history

Founded in 1975 in Saint-Laurent by Michel Alepins and his sons, Paul and Gaetan, Altex® offers window covering solutions for the residential, commercial and architectural sectors. In 1989, Altex® moved to Terrebonne, in larger premises to increase its productivity. In 2012, the family-owned business acquired SunProjectTM, a high-tech Toronto-based company specializing in light and energy management. Altex® positions itself as a valued supplier of architects and designers.

"Since 1913, when our grandfather Georges Alepins founded his first business, our family has dedicated itself to serving our clients in outstanding fashion. In 1975, my brother and I had the opportunity to found Altex with our father. For four generations now, we have been driven by the same desire: to satisfy our customers.”

— Gaetan Alepins, President of Altex®.

Altex® sells its products across North America and works in partnership with companies around the world to provide the highest quality in terms of fabrics and mechanisms, many of which are patented and exclusive. Altex® is proud to carry out all of its distribution, administration and manufacturing activities in Canada and the United States.
