En-Plas turns 30
In 1978, Bill Davis was the Premier of Ontario, Harold Ballard was running the Toronto Maple Leafs -- and Al Lemieux opened a plastics machinery sales firm called En-Plas Inc. in Scarborough, Ont.

Today, Bill Davis has long since departed the political scene, the Toronto Maple Leafs are best left unmentioned, and En-Plas is celebrating its 30th year in business.
“Although Canadian manufacturing has taken its bumps and bruises over the past little while, we want our customer base and Canadian molders in general to be assured that we have no thoughts of abandoning this marketplace,” said Brad Lemieux, sales manager. “Many of our competitors have decided to cease operations here or downsize, but En- Plas plans to aggressively push forward and hopefully seize the opportunities presented by others.”
With a staff of 16 and a 52,000 square foot facility, En-Plas currently stocks and distributes Nissei Plastic Industrial Co. Ltd. for injection molding machinery, Yushin Precision Equipment Co. for robots and sprue pickers, Mokon for temperature control systems, Spirex Corp. for screws, cylinders and control feeding devices, Technomagnete Inc. for magnetic systems, and Thoreson-McCosh Inc. for auxiliary equipment.
The company also sells used injection molding, automation and auxiliary equipment.
“Overall, we are very proud of our achievements, and it’s a testament to our loyal customer base whose support we truly appreciate,” Lemieux said. “We look forward to supplying turnkey solutions to Canada’s molders for another 30+ years.”
