For more than 55 years, FLOFORM’s skilled craftspeople have helped customers select, fabricate and install countertops both residentially and commercially.
We have a history of quality craftsmanship.
Established in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1961 by brothers Harry, Frank and John Dyck, the FLOFORM name was inspired by the cutting edge technology of post-form laminate countertops.
Our first FLOFORM location was a 7,000 square-foot building in Winnipeg that housed seven skilled craftsmen.
Today, nearly 60 years later, FLOFORM is one of the largest countertop fabricators in North America with 15 retail locations and five fabrication facilities across western Canada and the northwest USA, employing over 700 people.
And though we’ve grown substantially since our humble beginnings, we remain committed to our tradition of quality craftsmanship and superior customer service in all our markets.
1 - Plan
There’s a lot to think about when designing a custom kitchen. But with some upfront planning and a little help from FLOFORM, your renovation can be simpler. We take the guesswork out of creating a custom kitchen so you can relax and enjoy the process.
2 - Measure
Accurate measurement is the critical first step in creating your new countertops. Our trained experts visit your home and use the latest digital technology to create a precise digital template to ensures a seamless fit of your new countertops.
3 - Fabricate
We use a two-step system when creating your countertops. First, state-of-the-art machines cut and polish your surface with the digital template as a guide. Second, skilled craftspeople polish the edges to your specifications.

An experienced FLOFORM installation team will manage every detail of your installation, working with you to get the beautiful results you expect. We’ve been known for our exceptional customer service for more than 55 years.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a template and what happens at template?
A template is a digital rendering of what your new countertops will look like, fit to the walls and cabinets in your home.
During this appointment, a template specialist will inspect your cabinets and walls, take measurements with a digital device, review all the details of your job and answer any final questions you may have before your countertops are produced.
Do I need to be home for templating?
Yes. A decision-maker, preferably one of the homeowners needs to be at home for the duration of the template.
This person is needed to answer any questions about kitchen usage, lifestyle, and design requirements in their space so that we can provide the best-finished product for your project.
How do I prepare for a template?
Please have your countertops cleared prior to the template specialist’s arrival
And have all sinks, faucets, soap dispensers, hot/cold water dispensers, cooktops, dishwashers, refrigerators, and any other appliances on site.
Also, a decision-maker over the age of 18 (preferably the Homeowner) must be present for the duration of the template, which lasts approximately two hours.
Will the countertop installation be noisy? Messy? Smelly?
Yes, yes, and yes.
While we take the utmost care while installing your countertops, there are loud tools required to complete the job.
We have dust collection systems but no installation process is 100% dust free but you may want to drape or cover areas to contain the dust to the construction area.
FLOFORM will leave the job-site in “broom swept” condition. Additionally, chemicals are often used in the installation process. Epoxies and other glues can have a strong odor but are not a health concern with an open window.
How do prepare for installation of my new countertops?
Please have your countertops cleared prior to the installation crews arrival and have all sinks, faucets, soap dispensers, hot/cold water dispensers, cooktops, dishwashers, refrigerators, and any other appliances on site, and out of the way.
If appliances and fixtures are existing, please have them disconnected and removed to prevent any accidental damages.
Because the material is awkward and heavy, we request that a clear path with lots of room is provided and that the workspace is vacant.
Finally, a decision-maker over the age of 18 (preferably the Homeowner) must be present for the duration of the install, which lasts approximately three to four hours.
Can I install my own countertops?
In certain circumstances, we do offer the option of you installing your own countertops.
