History

history

VPC Group Inc. beginnings can be traced back to fabrication in 1962. It was started by the Himel family, with an expansion into foaming operations followed by fibre production. Through our association with a global leader in urethane conversion and our most recent acquisition of Valle Foam Ltd, VPC Group Inc. has grown to become Canada’s leading manufacturer of urethane foam products for the furniture, bedding and flooring industry. To maintain a lead in the industry, VPC Group Inc. believes in the important use of technologically advanced methods to deliver exceptional products and superior value to our customers.

Our family owned business roots have continued with the acquisition of our management team and are reflected in the way we do business as a privately owned manufacturer by placing both people and respect at the top of the pyramid.
