Free Form Plastic Products Inc. was established in 1990 at its current location in St. Brieux by a local family to produce rotationally moulded components that meet the high quality requirements of Western Canada’s leading agricultural equipment manufacturers. The primary focus of the business was to produce custom products for clients as needed. As illustrated in the timeline, the company outgrew the original building very quickly and expanded its production space and amount of equipment. During this time many agriculture OEM’s became dependent on the parts being produced which lead to Bourgault Industries Ltd. purchasing the company to maintain supply of these products. In time the business transitioned from one focused on custom molded products to one which looked to differentiate itself in the market through the creation of proprietary solutions. With this transformation came the creation of an extensive dealer network and the groundwork for how the company continues to operate today.
Free Form has designed moulds and manufactured an extensive array of high quality plastic components that have been used in a whole host of applications, including agriculture, mining, forestry, construction, oilfield, recreation, and transportation.
Free Form has in-house design capability and uses state of the art solid modelling design software. This design capability, including the latest 3D printing technology is available to assist clients with their designs of custom products. This capability is also used extensively for the design and development of our own proprietary products.
Free Form’s success is based on their pursuit of proprietary solutions for the most demanding customers. You will find that most products that we produce have patents on them allowing our products to standout in the marketplace. Over the years we have come across other products that embody our vision and we have chosen to purchase these companies and continue to offer those products as our own. We also strive to align ourselves with dealers that standout in their respective territory to bring our products to the customers through their locally trusted retails.
Free Form is a supplier to many Agricultural Original Equipment Manufacturers. Original equipment manufacturers demand high quality components at competitive prices. By having learned how to meet these demands, Free Form has positioned itself to step out and bring high quality products to other market sectors at competitive prices.
