VR2 Distribution started in Richmond in the Eastern Townships in 1981 thanks to founder and owner, Mr. Luc Bernier. Since 1989, the company has moved to the town of Asbestos where the head office still is today. In the 80’s and 90’s the company had a lot of prosperity with the manufacturing of ready-to-wear clothing for different Québec companies.
With time, seeing the contracts diminish little by little and competitors going overseas, in early 2000, VR2 Distribution decides to make the jump themselves. Since 2005, the company mostly specializes in swimwear for women. Nonetheless, to diversify its activities and revenues, VR2 Distribution decides to distribute and market different types of clothing on an international level.
