History of Polyform
Expanded Plastics Manufacturer
Founded in 1963, Polyform is one of the largest manufacturer in Canada to focus on transforming expanded cellular plastic. Over the years, we have become a trusted partner to our many suppliers and customers worldwide, and renowned for both the technical support we provide to our customers as well as the quality and precision of our products. It is due to the constant effort of our team and our commitment to using the latest equipment and technology that the company has been able to innovate since its inception.
Polyform has 4 divisions: Industrial, Insulation, Environment and Helmets. Our consumption of expanded polypropylene (EPP) has continued to increase over the years. We therefore took the decision to acquire a raw materials plant to supply our own expanded polypropylene (EPP), Concepp Technologies. Polyform is a market leader in the development and manufacturing of specialty insulation products, such as the NUDURA® line of insulated concrete forms (ICF). Polyform works with this elite trusted partner for the worldwide distribution of its forms. A range of products made by Polyform can now be found within every market sector: residential, commercial, industrial and institutional.
