We are located outside of Toronto in Markham, Ontario. Founded in 1982 by Chris VonHerff and now owned by Peter and Jackie McNamara since 1999. Customer service has always been our primary goal. Whatever you need, we can find it for you.
For the past 30 years our business has adapted to the changing times by adding new niche lines as requested by ourcustomers. However, with the adage "if it ain't broke don't fix it" in mind, we continue to sell many of the same products our founder started with. The reason is - they work. We offer long term solutions that will save you money over time.
