Boréal Design contributed over twenty years of exceptional service and dedication to the kayaking industry. Although they remained strong and diligent to the end, the Quebec-based company sadly closed their doors at the feat of bankruptcy earlier this month.
The bankruptcy of Boréal Design was a sudden and unexpected event. Boréal Design did their part in releasing iconic and stunning models such as the Ellesmere, Fjord, Narwhal and their newest Epsilon product line. Never failing to produce products of the utmost quality, Boréal’s exceptional pride and craftsmanship will surely be missed.
“We received confirmation from BORÉALDESIGN President, Eric Blouin this morning that the company is indeed in the hands of the bank and has closed its doors. BORÉALDESIGN was founded in 1991 by Natalie Simard and Eric Blouin and made a fantastic product. It is with great sadness that our relationship with BORÉALDESIGN has ended and we think about Eric, Natalie and all our friends who no longer have their jobs,” posted Nikki Rekman Sales on her Facebook page.
Their kayaks, name, promise, legacy, and contribution to the kayaking industry will never be forgotten.
