Trevi is a family business founded in 1972 by Clément Hudon. In those days, a trailer and two above-ground pools constituted the company’s office and showroom. Located on Labelle Blvd. in Laval, Clément Hudon and his partner decided to differentiate their business by focusing on their clients specific needs and requirements. This strategy has evidently born fruit as 50 years later Trevi is still a major player in the pool market.
In 1976, as part of the constant evolution of its products, Trevi focused on concrete pool bottoms and a process that would one day revolutionize how in-ground pools were installed. Trevi continue its evolution in 1984 with the manufacture of aluminium pools and the manufacture of entire pool assemblies.
After its acquisition of the Maître Piscinier banner, the group left Laval and concentrated all its manufacturing activities in Mirabel. Over the years, the Trevi, Cornelius Pools, Taïga Zone and Val-Mar brands have earned solid reputations.
With stores in Greater Montreal as well as stores in Calgary, Trevi relies on a national and international distribution network to serve the residential and institutional segments of its North American and European markets.
Trevi is the only producer of products for in-ground and above-ground pools completely manufactured in Quebec and, according to Les Affaires magazine, the company ranks among Quebec’s largest with over 1200 employees.

Trevi Founding President
Fifty years ago, I started a business with one objective in mind: to offer premium quality products that would put a smile on the faces of Quebec families. Half a century later, I realize that Trevi is much more than that. Trevi became a synonym of summer, dreams, innovation and represents the family – my family, yours and all the one wishing to create unique and unforgettable moments. Today, I am proud to see that I accomplished my goals thanks to the people surrounding me. The future looks promising. Together, let’s keep encouraging local companies but foremost, let’s get our family working!»
