Our history

Success story

Founded in 1967

In 1967, Irving Lubin founded Elran, the first Canadian company to specialize in reclining furniture.

A family business

Today, Elran is a second-generation family business lead and managed by Sheldon Lubin and Eric Abécassis.

1980: A turning point

Until 1979, Elran exclusively manufactured only one product: the reclining chair. 1980 marked a very important year for Elran, becoming the first company to introduce reclining loveseats and sofas to the market.

The leader

Today, Elran is the industry-leader offering a complete range of reclining chairs, loveseats, sofas and many other furniture components and options.

A world of style and choice

With over 150 collections, our traditional, transitional and contemporary styles are available in more than 550 fabrics and leathers.

A local company with global reach

The 235,000 sq.ft. Elran manufacturing plant is located in Montreal, and employs more than 500 people.

A unique process

The plant is highly automated and efficient because of a cellular manufacturing process and a just-in-time production system.

Rigorous standards

From design, to prototype testing, and to final assembly each step of the production process has a meticulous step-by-step verification system that maintains our rigorous quality control standards.

A worldwide success

Elran products are distributed throughout Canada and the United States, and in Europe and the Middle East, firmly establishing the company as one of Canada’s top furniture exporters. Our exceptional world-wide reputation is not only due to our high quality products, but also to fast delivery, reliable after-sales service, and the close attention we pay to the changing needs of the marketplace.
