About us

The power of a group

Elite tools was acquired in 2018 by the FICODIS consortium in order to sustain its expansion. FICODIS is a Canadian group whose main purpose is to provide companies with services, technical expertise and products in the field of industrial supplies.

Ficodis recently merged with the Descours & Cabaud group, a 240-year-old European professional supply distribution group.

Our roots

Elite tools, heir to a tradition of more than 123 years, is based on the boldness, entrepreneurial spirit, vision and know-how of two great Quebec families, the Garant and Mercier families. Originally, this company was called Les Scies Mercier. Today, it remains one of the oldest cutting tool manufacturers in North America and the building that gave birth to the company is one of the most important witnesses of Lévis' industrial patrimony.

Our mission

To offer a selection of specialized tools that fulfill the needs of woodworkers, along with unsurpassed customer service.

Elite Tools vision

A pioneer in online sales, Outils Elite made it easier for cabinetmakers and woodworkers across Eastern Canada to access professional quality tools. Patrick Garant could not imagine giving his customers full satisfaction without a state-of-the-art web site. This is how Outils Elite became one of the first companies in Canada in its field to use e-commerce.

Our promise

  • Dedicated customer support, backed by a team of enthusiastic professionals with a strong passion for wood, metal, and the industrial sector.
  • A warehouse of more than 5,000ft., with more than 12,000 products in inventory and relationships with a hundred suppliers!
  • A shipping team that strives to guarantee you fast delivery, combined with free shipping for purchases of $99 and more

Our local involvement

We take pride in nurturing trust-based connections throughout the years, thereby delivering advantages to both our valued customers and students from cabinetmaking schools. Additionally, we actively participate in community organizations in Lévis, including our recent engagement with the Center Femmes l'Ancrage.

A word from Patrick Garant, our founder

"We want to offer our customers a unique shopping experience, both online and in our store in Levis. We will always try to offer you the best quality-price ratio, because quality and service runs in the family."
