Promax founder Royer passes

January 4, 2021  By Jennifer Small, Screenco

We are sad to announce that Daniel Royer, former owner of Groupe Promax, a division of Screenco in Quebec City, passed away on Saturday, January 2, 2021 at an early age of 71. Daniel had a long history in the Canadian Fenestration industry. He founded the successful steel door company, Celco Doors in 1985, and sold it to Premdor (now Masonite) in 1997. In 2004, he joined founder of Groupe Promax, Daniel Aubert, as a partner in the business. He helped grow the operations and took over entirely in 2013. Daniel was recognized as a Fenestration Canada Pioneer in 2010.

In 2018, Screenco acquired Promax and Daniel retired. My last contact with him was in September of this year when we communicated about the crazy Covid year and its affect on business and supply chain. He was in good sprits and looking forward to his RV trip to Gaspésie.

From the entire Screenco and Promax families, we extend our deepest condolences to his loved ones.
