Who Is Viking?
Our founder Tom Vermeeren launched Viking Plastics back in 1992 with the goal of becoming a one-stop shop for plastic, resin, and fiberglass products. Tom studied structural design at the Fanshawe College civil engineering technology program and NAIT plastic engineering technology program, giving him a solid background not just in structural design, but plastics manufacturing as well. Tom's background has been instrumental in leading the shift from metal parts to more affordable, lightweight plastic materials for use in a wide range of settings.
Over the decades of his career, he has also worked in the rubber industry, compounding, and molding rubber. In terms of plastics, he has worked in pultrusion, extrusion, injection molding and casting. This diverse background makes him uniquely equipped to continue to keep Viking Plastics at the forefront of this ever-evolving industry as we look to the future.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to bringing our extensive experience in plastics, fiberglass and more to those who need it most. Our staff members undergo years of training in engineering, design, technology, and other key topics to enable us to provide the best possible service. We aim to go beyond simply selling the materials, providing you with the education and advice you need to see your projects through to fruition. While our focus is on materials, that really is just the start of what we do.
Our customers are innovators and forward-thinkers in a diverse range of industries, including entertainment, art, manufacturing, health care, and more. We also supply a wide range of products to DIY craftspeople, offering expert advice and guidance to help you bring your vision to life. From museums and art galleries to stages and screens, you'll find our products in a variety of applications in your day-to-day.
The process of developing a new product or improving upon an existing one often involves prototyping or producing sample products. We are proud to offer in-house design and prototyping capabilities for parts, moulds, and other products. Utilizing the latest in 3D design capabilities, we can help you get your product from just an idea into an actual physical product. From design, prototyping, manufacturing process selection and production, we do it all from start to finish.
We'll be right there with you throughout the design and testing processes to help you evaluate your material requirements so that we can provide the most suitable materials to meet your needs. Once you have worked through testing and improving your product, we can assist with the manufacturing as well. With our help, you can successfully bring your dream into reality with some of the best materials on the market today.
