The business was started in Victoria, BC Canada by two returning WWII Veterans. While serving in the Canadian Air Force, these two had witnessed, first hand, the development of Plastics in the aviation industry. So when they returned from the war, they opened up a small Plastics Fabrication shop on Fort St in Victoria, BC. Since that time we have grown to 8 Western Canadian locations in British Columbia and Alberta.
To provide our customers with greater access to more products we joined the Ace Hardware Buying Group in 2002. This association has developed into a major supply chain for the IPP Stores and provides our buyers with access to the over 65,000 items in the 800,000 sq. ft. Moxie Washington Regional Supply Center. This access combined with the 2 major Ace buying shows each year and the annual National Hardware Show ensures that we remain on the leading edge of the hardware industry product offerings.
Over the years, Industrial Plastics & Paints has expanded the product line with products that help our customers solve problems. While these products have been readily available to customers in the vicinity of our Western Canadian stores, customers further afield have expressed frustration at not having easy access to our fantastic product line. So in 2012, we introduced this eCommerce site to provide access to customers not in the vicinity of one of our stores.
