Fonderie LaPerle Commemorates Canadian Sesquicentennial
Ste. Croix, Quebec, Canada ─ Bibby Ste.-Croix’s Fonderie LaPerle (a division of Canada Pipe), which manufactures street castings, manhole frames, covers, and municipal road castings is joining the celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary. Bibby LaPerle has produced a commemorative manhole cover for the sesquicentennial celebration.
“Bibby LaPerle is proud to produce a commemorative product that will be used in many cities in Eastern Canada,” said Tom Leonard, president of Bibby. “This commemorative manhole cover, featuring the 150th anniversary logo, will be seen by thousands of Canadians and visitors this year in celebration of our country’s sesquicentennial.”
It’s important to the Eastern market to choose a product that is manufactured in Canada by Canadian workers. Manufacturing is the cornerstone of the Canadian economy. Bibby Ste-Croix is a 95-year old Canadian company that employs more than 540 team members at its two Quebec foundries. For each job Bibby creates, three additional Canadian jobs are created contributing to the overall economic strength of our nation. What sets Bibby LaPerle street castings apart from imported products is the CSA certification. The CSA mark signifies manufacturing excellence. It’s added peace of mind when municipalities and cities choose safe and enduring products that meet the stringent CSA standards.
Bibby-Ste-Croix produces cast iron soil pipe and fittings used in drain, waste and vent (DWV) plumbing systems. Founderie LaPerle manufactures street castings, manhole frames and covers, and municipal road castings. Bibby Ste-Croix is a division of Canada Pipe which is owned by McWane, Inc.
