Canplas has been a leader in the construction plastics industry since 1966.
Headquartered in Barrie, Ontario—with offices in Edmonton, Alberta and Langley, B.C. — Canplas started out as a manufacturer of ABS and PVC pipe fittings for the plumbing industry.
From the very beginning, we prioritized state-of-the-art equipment, stringent quality testing, and an unrelenting commitment to customer service. This proved to be a very successful combination for our business. As our engineers pioneered new plumbing products and injection molding techniques, we saw how our expertise could serve other construction markets.
Today, Canplas manufactures high-quality plumbing, ventilation, central vacuum and grease separation products for residential and commercial buildings all over the continent. We continue to improve and grow our product offering.
Innovation is central to our corporate DNA. In fact, Canplas holds over seventy patents and design registrations for products. From manufacturing processes to supply chain management, we are continually looking for areas in which we can innovate in order to better serve our customers.
Near-Perfect Service Levels
Product quality is our top priority, and excellent service is equally important to us.
Details as simple as order accuracy, delivery and dependability can make a significant difference in your daily operations. High service levels lower your inventory, improve cash flow, and save headaches.
Canplas is dedicated to ensuring your orders come on time, in full and on spec. In fact, we have achieved a 98% service level, and we are actively striving to close that 2% gap.
Keeping large volumes of inventory onsite takes up valuable space and requires a significant investment.
To prevent your business from bearing the brunt of inventory, Canplas holds your extra inventory instead.
We keep a large stock of our products at our facilities. With warehouses across Canada, we are ready ship your order when you need it. Order what you need, when you need it, and we will ensure it arrives when it’s supposed to.
It’s reliable, easy and efficient. More importantly, our storage space means you have room and flexibility for other important items. It also means lowered transaction costs and improved cash flow.
Canplas is serious about continuous improvement, even at the expense of our own inventions.
It’s why we ask for customer feedback, and why our engineers are constantly submitting patents for new designs. When a bright idea makes it through to a new product, we give credit where it is due.
With your help, we continue to innovate and improve the quality of our products to make them better for you.
In addition to manufacturing plastic products, Canplas is committed to passing on the knowledge we have acquired (and continue to acquire) in this industry, so you can do your job better.
Canplas offers free courses and Lunch and Learns that award Continuing Education Units (CEU) with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE), among others.
Our experts cover topics ranging from how proper roof ventilation can keep your home healthy, the impact of excessive fats, oils, and grease (FOG) on the sanitary sewer system, and your solutions to grease management.
Give your business a competitive advantage against other industry players with our easy-to-access, free courses.
At Canplas, we go beyond industry standard testing. After passing code compliancy testing, we find other ways to improve the quality of our products by developing even more stringent tests.
For example, we will throw baseballs at roof vents to simulate hail. We will put plastic in the freezer to see how it performs in sub-zero temperatures.
We do this because we want to make sure our products are as reliable as we claim—and so that we can continue to improve on them. Exceeding expectations through stringent testing is important to us, so we can offer the best product possible—and then improve on that product wherever we can.
Made in North America
All of our products are designed, manufactured and tested in North America. We are proud to support the North American plastics manufacturing industry—contributing to local employment, businesses and growth.
Because all of our products are made locally, we are able to closely monitor their quality—ultimately for a better product, better service and lower costs on shipping.
Our location also allows us to build relationships in the markets we serve, so we can work through any issues with you, offer quick fixes, education and helpful service.
Sourcing multiple products from a single supplier means convenience and cost savings for your business.
That’s why we manufacture an extensive range of products for each of the construction markets we serve. With thousands of products to choose from, you’ll be sure to find what you need.
Tool modifications and repairs can slow manufacturers down.
It’s why we set up our own tool shop in-house, so we could be in control of the process, and so we can make changes happen faster.
What does this mean for you? If you have a suggestion for improving one of our products, we can take your feedback, and make modifications right away to test it out.
A business is only as good as its word, which is why all of our products are covered under a warranty for those defects that—despite stringent inspections and testing—slip through the cracks.
Along with innovative, quality plastic products, Canplas offers peace of mind in knowing that we replace any product that has been delivered with a defect within the first six months of the date of delivery.
We have a product excellence guarantee, and we will work with you to correct any issues or dissatisfaction you experience with anything we manufacture.
