As much as one argues the market stays the same, it is truly changing on a daily basis – amalgamations, mergers and production relocation create a constant flux with respect to who’s doing what where. Having been in business for over 45 years, now, Warehoused Plastic Sales is fortunate to have solid relationships with many of Ontario’s industrial entrepreneurs and work diligently to deliver more services aimed at thickening our customers’ bottom lines – we’re constantly investing in innovation.
Recently we’ve added a 2nd delivery truck (so, when exactly does it become a fleet?) giving us greater just-in-time capabilities across Southern Ontario. We’ve added another 5 people to our staff roster bringing some much needed experience and ability to the table. We’re in the process of adding a new guillotine and currently looking to expand our cutting capabilities, too.
Precision CNC Routering
We’ve been offering fabricators and production plants just-in-time parts for about 8 years now and it’s been a very successful program. It allows our customers to focus on their core competencies – design, acrylic display fabrication, and/or manufacturing without having to invest in additional equipment or skill sets just to cut and machine a one-time-program of plastic parts (FYI – a CNC router is about US$80k and an entrepreneurial operator is $40-$60k/year). We can have the parts cut, labeled, boxed, and put on our shelves with inventory quantities flowing from our information systems to those of our customers offering real time information to their production teams.
We’ve added four new products to our PRISMA catalogue: (1) FRP grating; (2) 30′ Polycarbonate twin-wall sheets; (3) UHMW lining systems for dump trucks, hoppers, and ships, & railway cars; and (4) an innovative heat-exchanger made entirely out of plastic for the pork and poultry industries. Too, we’re developing a standardized selection of outrigger pads for cranes and excavators.
FRP Grating Used In A Pulp Mill
Another service we’ve invented is an off-cut registration program. All of our bits and pieces are now logged and accessible by our order desk team. They can assist you in reducing the amount of material you need by offering smaller blocks or pieces that will do the job. We carry about 2,500 blocks and pieces at any given time.

It’s one thing to raise your prices but it’s another to truly demonstrate that the additional revenues are being reinvested in the relationship creating an able partner that understands the pressure their customers are under to get the job done right the first time.
But, then again, that’s what we, the people, here at Warehoused Plastics, do on a daily basis – we get the job done, on time, and on budget.
