Miralis is a Quebec company that was founded in 1976 and that has built a reputation as a kitchen designer through its pioneering vision and the impeccable quality of its products. The small company from Rimouski, which first specialized in kitchen cabinets, was quickly recognized for having an artistic vision ahead of its time. Today, Miralis carries out major projects and exports its talent and Quebec-honed know-how all around the world. Its goal: to make every kitchen a friendly place with a soul of its own.
Exclusivity is what drives Miralis. In 2010, it launched a range of contemporary products inspired by European trends and quickly garnered attention, not least because it was one of the only manufacturers to offer this type of product in North America. In 2012, Miralis also propelled the “rough chic” trend, which combines textured wood and modern materials and still enjoys great success. Starting in 2016, the company will shift into growth mode. More than ever before, Miralis wants to conquer new markets and the hearts of its customers.
Always wanting to do better, the Miralis team carefully weighs every move, both inside its ultramodern 125,000 sq. ft. plant and outside, where it maintains special relationships with its dealers and with industry specialists.
Products for turnkey renovations, innovative collections for kitchens with an urban and distinctive look, cutting-edge concepts—its surprising and wonderful offering creates emotion.
Miralis is committed to being a leader in its field for environmental friendliness. Besides already receiving an award for energy efficiency from Hydro-Québec, it also recently acquired CARB2 certification, which is recognized by the industry for the control of formaldehyde emissions during the processing of wood products.
