At Reflexite our business is the Management of Light. Our growth strategy is to combine our core capabilities in optical engineering, microreplication, and polymer processing to create new, differentiated products for global markets. Current and future priority markets are reflective products, display optics, lighting optics, instrumentation optics, and telecom optics.
Company History – In 1963, company founders Hugh and Bill Rowland bought the rights to develop a new retro-reflective technology from a company called Luce Reflexite, Inc.
Locations – Reflexite locations globally.
Employee Stock Ownership Plan – The ESOP provides the proper environment for all employee-owners to positively influence the company’s performance and consequently its value.
Employment – We provide outstanding opportunities for employee-owners to develop their potential and build a career in a challenging and rewarding entrepreneurial environment.
The Management of Light business concept provides focus for our efforts and a strategy for creating the future. The three Reflexite fundamentals, technology, ownership, and quality are what drive us to excel.
Reflexite was founded based on its unique proprietary technology and the value that the Technology can create for customers. The Technology embodies three elements: optical engineering, microreplication, and polymer processing. All of our products are uniquely engineered, all involve optical microstructures, and all products are made from various plastic substrates.
The second fundamental, Ownership, was created in 1985. The ESOP was formed to transfer stock from the founding brothers to the employees. Over the years, the ESOP has grown to be the largest shareholder in the company and all employee-owners throughout the company are members of the Reflexite ESOP. It is through their ownership in the company that employees participate in the financial rewards of business success, governance of the corporation, and participation in decision making that effects their work lives. Ownership also creates pride. Pride in our products, our services, and our business integrity.
The third fundamental that was added in 1989 is Quality. All Reflexite employee-owners are trained in the Reflexite quality system and continuous improvement. In this way all of us have a convenient means to improve the company that we all own.

Since its inception in 1973, Symplastics has provided high quality processed thermoplastics for a diverse range of customers requiring plastics, with unique characteristics. Those customers can be divided into three markets, each with its own processing criteria and demanding specifications.
From the beginning, Symplastics has been dedicated to offering the stationery and loose-leaf industry the highest quality polyethylene loose-leaf products anywhere. We believe our graphic ready plastic sheeting is second to none in its durability and its versatility for an unlimited number of specialized uses. Whether you want custom designed finished goods or ready-to-assemble components, Symplastics is ready to meet your needs.
When we acquired the Spray Guard® spray suppressant mud flap product line from Monsanto in 1987, we burst into the trucking business and helped improve truck safety to the benefit of both truck manufactures and fleet operators. Since then we have responded to customer requests by offering a complete line of decorated and plain mud flaps, as well as trailer scuff liners, and Sym Mat® step mats for trucks. We have grown to be the principal supplier of mud flaps to the North America’s tractor manufacturing industry, while continuing to serve the aftermarket through a continental network of established heavy duty parts distributors.
Our third and most dynamic market, the engineered plastics market, is served by our Ramex® Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene sheet and rod production facilities. Since we developed the world’s first ram extruder for making UHMW-PE sheet 48″ wide in 1985, we have continually reinvested in our production capabilities, by doubling capacity in 1992 with a second ram extruder, and doubling them again in 1996 with the addition of a multi-mold compression molding press. In making those investments, Symplastics is in the unique position of offering excellent thickness tolerances, superb sheet surface quality, and the ability to provide non-standard sheet lengths, like 12 ft. or 3.5m., through a complete UHMW-PE product line.
Symplastics has not been content to simply maintain double digit capacity and sales growth. We have invested in plastics research, environmental excellence, and ISO quality standards. We are proud of our commitment to sound environmental practices. Our Enviro-flex® grade of polyethylene sheeting contains 90% post-consumer waste, evidence of our success in finding appropriate uses for recycled plastic products. In addition , Symplastics is on the forefront of reprocessing used UHMW-PE resin into products suitable for less demanding plastic lining applications. These products, together with the environmentally friendly operations at our Orangeville plant has earned Symplastics the Environmental Choice award from the Canadian Federal Government.
