TORONTO -- Vision Extrusions Ltd., a company recently established by Vic De Zen, who founded major vinyl extruder Royal Group Technologies, is setting up a footprint in the Quebec market.

Vision has agreed to partner with Dynaplast-Extruco Inc. of Montreal to form a joint venture called Nextrusions, an affiliate of De Zen’s Vision Group.

“Considering our existing customer base in Quebec, it was part of our strategic planning to evaluate and implementation in the region,” explained Vision Group owner De Zen. Vision Group runs several plants in Vaughn, Ontario, north of Toronto’s airport.

Window producers in Quebec should benefit by having greater access to new technology through the partnership, the companies claimed in a June 25 news release. Dynaplast-Extruco extrudes vinyl profiles for windows, doors and technical applications.

ZZen Group of Cos. is a company De Zen founded in 2002 to develop industrial sites. De Zen launched his manufacturing operations, Vision Group, in 2008. Companies within Vision Group include Vision Extrusions, Reliance Basement Windows which makes vinyl windows, Vision Outdoor Products, an extruder of vinyl railings, columns, fencing and gates, Vision Hollow Metal, a producer of aluminum profiles, Sunview Patio Door, which makes vinyl and aluminum patio doors, and Titanium Transportation, a shipping concern.

De Zen founded Vision Group after leaving Royal Group Technologies in 2004. The extrusion specialist went to trial in 2010 with several other Royal Group executives charged with fraud in two business transactions. A judge ruled the charges had no merit and De Zen and other officials were exonerated.

De Zen told a newspaper in 2012 that Vision Group had annual sales of C$400 million (US$384 million), more than 1,000 employees and nine manufacturing plants.

Dynaplast-Extruco President Gérald Gravel said building material suppliers need to improve their operations daily to remain competitive.
