Hey there! I'm Arnaud

I'm the founder of 514rpm, a small business based right here in Montreal.

Before moving to Canada in 2017, I was awarded the "Best Apprentice in France" in the category of plastic transformation. I've always had a passion for manufacturing and have been honing my skills in multiple workshops ever since.

But during the pandemic, I discovered a new passion: collecting vinyl records. There's something about the warmth and richness of sound that you just can't find anywhere else.

As I searched for forgotten records in local shops, I realized that I could use my manufacturing expertise to turn them into something special.

And that's how 514rpm was born. We specialize in upcycling and eco-friendly products, and each one is unique.

I personally search for the records to use in our products, and I take great pride in giving each one a new lease on life as a beautiful shelf or other home decor item. 

Sustainability is incredibly important to me, and it's a top priority at 514rpm. I believe that we can create beautiful, functional products while still being mindful of our impact on the environment.

Each product is handmade with care and reflects my commitment to sustainability.


Thanks for supporting small businesses like mine!
