Company History

Canplast  has a rich company history, it was founded in 1974. In 1976, Canplast put its first production line in its present location in Montreal, QC. In 1981, Canplast installed its first “calendar” line. This allowed Canplast to produce multiple bands at one time. Canplast opened a new facility in Greensboro, NC in 1988. This plant was opened to better serve the burgeoning US market for PVC. Canplast has the only major PVC manufacturing plant in the US. In 1992, Canplast installed the first of its production lines capable of manufacturing 3mm thick Edgebanding.

In recent years, Canplast has expanded and has corporate ownership in Canplast Mexico, Canplast Centro America, and Canplast Do Brasil.

In 2004 Canplast became part of SURTECO SE, the world’s leading specialist for surfaces technologies, with a product range covering decorative printed papers, surface foils and Edgebanding.

Quality & Service


It is our company policy at Canplast to constantly check in-coming raw materials to ensure that they are the quality we expect. We follow that up with a 16 step quality check on all manufactured material to ensure that it’s the quality you expect. From top to bottom, the highest quality product is our goal.


At Canplast, we realize that a high quality product is not enough. It must be coupled with exceptional customer service as well. That’s why our customer service agents are cross trained to better serve our customers. From reception of order until shipping, our staff has the know-how to get the answers you need, when you need them.


Working with our customers, Canplast prides itself on innovations to the industry. One such product is our profile Edgebanding. We have numerous dies that give your edge a fluted look, without any additional processing. And some of these profiles can be printed for your own unique look.

Semi-Flexible 3mm Edgebanding is another example of answering the needs of the marketplace. This Edgebanding is designed for curved surface applications where the additional impact resistance of 3mm is required.

TopGloss Edgebanding is the most recent introduction we offer. This clear acrylic Edgebanding is printed on the back for better scratch resistance while giving it a depth of appearance.
