Our manufacturers - today: Reliance
Reliance Products has been working in plastic conversion for over 40 years. We started out in 1958 packaging battery acid and manufacturing collapsible containers, all the while supplying containers to other packagers of battery acid. Our Fold-A-Carrier water container was eventually born out of our modifications to these containers and this would be the foundation of a complete camping product line to follow years later. Manufacturing was consolidated in 1993 to the current Sherwin Road location in Winnipeg. Reliance received its first ISO quality certification in 1991 and is currently ISO-9001: 2000 registered. It was also around this time that we exited the battery acid game to focus on plastic packaging and additional consumer products. Today, we continue to manufacture blow-molded and injection molded products suited for both our industrial and consumer customers. We're constantly working with our customers to develop custom products to meet particular specifications. On the consumer side, we manufacture a number of products for camping and outdoor living under the Reliance name. Our three key product groups are hydration, sanitation and organization: everything from water containers and portable toilets to storage containers and tent pegs! While all of our products are available for purchase through our website, our success hinges on our strong relationships with our retail partners. With distribution through the largest department stores, mass merchants and specialty outdoor retailers, our products are available in most major communities in North America. Our web partners and a number of retailers overseas have also helped to bring the Reliance brand of products to a growing number of customers worldwide.
