Glass Craftsperson-General Labourer

Madawaska Door & Trim
Location: Barry's Bay, Ontario
Posted: November 19th 2021

Madawaska Door & Trim has its origins back in 1947 when the Hildebrandt family set up their own small, home based business in a workshop adjacent to their homestead in Barry’s Bay. In 1963, the business expanded into our current location, becoming Madawaska Doors in 1973. Over the years the business changed its size, vision, name and owners. But the same basic methods of fine woodworking are still in use today in our 30,000+ square foot manufacturing facility.

A new owner acquired the assets of the business in April 2019 and is continuing the legacy of Madawaska Door & Trim. Inspired by the history of the company and its award winning custom doors, the new ownership has brought new investment and a new sense of momentum.
