October 18, 2013 – Royal Building Products is moving its PVC pipe fittings facility in Surrey, B.C., about 40 km east to Langley, which will continue to manufacture PVC fittings measuring from 1/2-in. to 36-in. diameter for all product groups.
The new location also will distribute a range of moulded and fabricated solutions for municipal, plumbing and electrical markets directly to Royal’s customers in western Canada, says the company, and it will continue to fabricate custom fittings for customers across Canada.
“Our new location is optimal for manufacturing and storing more than 1000 fabricated and injection-moulded fittings products that Royal supplies,” said Lorne Smyth, vice-president, business development and marketing for Royal’s Pipe and Fittings Solutions business. “This new location, with proximity to the Trans Canada Highway, will provide easier pick-up for customers in the lower mainland of British Columbia, as well as easier carrier access for shipments across Canada.”
The entire team of manufacturing employees will be relocating to the new facility, as well as the administration, customer service and sales teams.
