Carlson Engineered Composites has been operating since 1985.

Carlson Engineered Composites has been operating since 1985. Our company currently employs over 300 staff and operates three production facilities in Canada and the United States. Carlson manufactures fiberglass reinforced polymer (FRP) components primarily for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of agricultural equipment, transportation and recreational vehicles.

The fiberglass composites business began with industrial and custom fabrication from which evolved a line of water and sewage tank manufacturing. This business expanded with the introduction of a line of truck caps and other recreational vehicle parts. Carlson then became involved in supply and development of parts as well as sub-assemblies to the transportation industry, specifically to local bus manufacturers. The business has developed to where Carlson now supplies exclusively to OEMs.
