PSG was founded in 1978 by Mr. Gaetan Fortin and Mr. Claude Roy in St-Georges, Quebec, Canada.
At the time, the two partners had a pool retail business on 1st Avenue in St-Georges. In order to better occupy the fall and winter seasons, they decided to start selling wood stoves. The demand for this type of product was rising and although they had a great success in terms of retail sales, they experienced major difficulties in obtaining adequate supply from manufacturers.
