Our History

1960s

Our founders—brothers Harry, Frank and John Dyck—establish FLOFORM Industries in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in 1961.

The first FLOFORM Countertops location opens on the corner of St. Mary’s and Oustic Avenue. Seven skilled craftsmen work in the 7,000-square-foot facility.

FLOFORM takes its name from a new countertop technology, “post form laminate,” which it helps pioneer in Manitoba.

1970 - 1980s

To keep up with demand and reach western markets, the company builds a new facility in 1974 and relocates to Hamelin Street in Winnipeg. A new logo illustrates FLOFORM’s post forming capabilities.

In the early 80s, FLOFORM expands into Alberta, opening new branches in Calgary and Edmonton.

The company acquires Saskatoon’s Custom Countertops for full coverage in the Prairie Provinces.

1990s

Ted Sherritt joins FLOFORM as Vice President of Finance and Administration. He will eventually be named President and CEO.

FLOFORM Countertops undergoes its first major rebrand in 1998 by introducing the purple and green logo featuring the beveled edge finish. The logo and its accompanying tagline “Fee-Fi-Flo-Form, The Giant Difference,” endure for a decade.

2000s

FLOFORM enters a period of expansion and growth, bringing new opportunities for our staff and our customers. Ted Sherritt is named CEO when Frank Dyck retires in 2000.

The company acquires Fine Line Pacific of Kent, Washington, expanding the company’s offerings and sparking the company’s second major rebranding effort.
In 2009 FLOFORM increases its geographical footprint by opening branches in British Columbia, first in Vancouver followed closely by Kelowna and Victoria.

2010s

In 2011, FLOFORM celebrated it’s 50th year of service.

In 2016, we continued expansion in the northwest USA by opening new showrooms in Boise, ID and Salt Lake City, UT.

And in 2019, FLOFORM added it’s 16th retail showroom in Vernon, BC.
