Company History

About Celplast Metallized Products Limited:
Celplast Metallized Products Limited, established in 1983 by Chuck Larsen and Bill Hellings, initially gained prominence as the preferred contract metallizer for major polypropylene film manufacturers in North America.  In the 2000’s it evolved into a provider of high value, certified metallized and clear barrier products.  Over its 40+ year journey, Celplast has grown to a team of over 50 professionals committed to providing the converting industry’s best customer service.

The company achieved a significant milestone in 2017 with the installation of the world’s first in-line flexo top-coater and metallizer, featuring patented Metacoat™ technology. This innovation opened new avenues for barrier performance, addressing markets and packaging formats previously untouched by metallized films. With numerous industry awards and a commitment to innovation, Celplast is a leading barrier film solution provider, actively collaborating with customers, suppliers, and industry partners to create tailored solutions that meet the evolving needs of the market. Under an experienced management team and a solid financial foundation, Celplast remains dedicated to fostering a spirit of innovation and ensuring the success of its customers.

Many Nations, One Culture

Our strength is based on our culture. In some ways it is exclusive: our self-directed work teams, trust-based credo and training programs ensure that only those who are hard-working self-starters, who want to improve every day, will be privileged enough to join the Celplast family. And it is also inclusive: anyone from anywhere in the world who exhibits these traits can join the Celplast family. Being in Toronto, we draw from a diverse array of backgrounds with different viewpoints, and we are stronger for it. We welcome all nations to be a part of something special, the Celplast culture.

Growing Together

As our business grows, we generate new challenges that give our employees the opportunity to grow and succeed. This provides our customers with the industry’s best customer service and the best barrier film solutions, giving our customers the opportunity to grow and succeed as well. And guess what? When our customers succeed, our business grows, creating new challenges and starting the cycle all over again.
