Sept. 20, 2018 - Unicel Architectural has announced that it has acquired all the assets of IC2 Technologies Inc. based in Portneuf, QC. Specialized in the fabrication of high energy-efficiency timber curtain walls, IC2 is an industry leader in the construction of passive houses and carbon-neutral buildings. The acquisition accelerates Unicel’s plans to grow its target market by extending the scope of its sustainable building envelope offerings and capabilities.


"Today's announcement signals a significant milestone for us," said Jean-François Couturier, CEO of Unicel Architectural."IC2 is a market-leader for timber curtainwalls that are both beautiful and highly energy efficient. As a Quebec-based company, they have a strong regional brand recognition and experienced team whose expertise meshes intuitively with ours. By including their progressive products and knowledge into our portfolio, our new and existing customers will benefit from a second-to-none choice of the industry’s best and most sustainable building envelope products."

IC2’s THERM+ H-I curtain wall integrates RAICO glazing and sealing technology that can be mounted on any kind of timber or derivative timber product. Based in Germany, RAICO Bautechnik GmbH develops high quality glazing systems for curtain walls. With its own invisible wooden connector system and an effective 3-level drainage system, this highly versatile RAICO technology can easily be installed in buildings with a steel, concrete or timber structure. 

"Joining Unicel offers tremendous opportunities for IC2," said Pierre-Yves Leroux, Director at IC2."We are excited about the potential the business combination brings to our corporate family and our customers. By becoming a part of the Unicel family, IC2 will leverage the resources of a premier player in our industry. We have long admired Unicel as a company and share their vision of delivering building envelope solutions that are both attractive and optimally sustainable. The strength of our combined companies will ensure our customers have more choices and more expertise – all from one source.”

Unicel will operate IC2 as a separate business unit within the Unicel corporate entity.
