Manufacturing Capabilities

Scepter has the ability to respond quickly to customers' orders, to customize product to match customers' exact requirements, and to ramp up production rapidly. The plant is a 24-hour-a-day, 5-day-a-week operation with three shifts. Weekends are used for production when required. Production is done on 19 injection-moulding machines and 13 blow-moulding machines, plus auxiliary equipment. Innovative in-house engineers design moulds and develop materials for use in production. Mould manufacturing is done in-house in a modern manufacturing facility, with a fully equipped maintenance area and stockroom, and 85,000 square feet of warehouse space for finished products. The lab is certified by CSA and ULI, and Scepter is ISO 9001:2008 certified.

Our environmental objective is to have a minimal negative impact on the environment while providing optimal solutions to our clients.
