Manufacturer of candles since 1896
Tradition Candles Ltd have produced candles in Laval, Montreal North Shore, starting 1973. Founded by Mr Pierre Perrault the company has established itself as a leader and expanded rapidly. One of the many reasons was the purchase of the Canadian division of Will & Baumer a very important American candle manufacturer.
The company is immediately renowned for the great quality of its liturgical and commercial products that are sold among the religious and commercial institutions in Canada and United States.
In 2007, Tradition Candles Ltd, managed by Mr Pierre Perrault’s two sons, Mr François and Mr Jean-Pierre Perrault, bought Mailloux Baillargeon Inc. another large candle manufacturer located in St-Constant, South Shore of Montreal. Both companies are selling similar products to the same markets.
At that time the company becomes Tradition MB Candles inc. and move all the operations in St-Constant workshops, more spacious and better adapted to the growing number of employees.
Mailloux Baillargeon inc. was created in 1989 after the merger of F. Bailargeon Ltd and J. E. Mailloux Ltd. Two other large competitors in the candle business.
F. Baillargeon was founded in 1896 when Frédéric Baillargeon started making candles in Saint-Isidore-Jonction before moving to St-Constant a few years later. In 1905, Joseph-Ernest Mailloux also launched a candle business in Talon, near St-Jean, and he later moved his facilities in Longueuil. Following the merger in 1989 the new company was settled in St-Constant.
Continuously on the lookout for new trends and after several years of research and testing, Chandelles Tradition MB inc. is proud to use more and more vegetable wax during the production of our products.
We are therefore the first manufacturer of candles to promote vegetable waxes from suppliers who take sustainable development to heart, whilst improving and controlling their productions so it can be done in a eco friendly environment.
We are proud to use in the production of our candles the following natural products for our vegetable wax.
Palm oil is extracted from the fruit of an African palm tree, elaeis guineensis. This first quality natural oil, allows us to create candles made from renewable ressources. The texture of the candle is unique and very original. A must have!
Coconut oil is extracted from the dried coconut pulp. Like palm oil, coconut oil candles, are part of the new generation of candles made from renewable resources. The cracked texture is truly unique.
Soy oil is extracted from soybeans. Soy is used, among other things, in the production of our scented candles and gives them a creamy texture.
Concerned about every little detail, most of the products we use are recycled.
We are happy to add gift boxes to this line.
Made from recycled cardboard with a Zen and refreshing look, the perfect combination for our natural candles.
