SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING SOLUTIONS
We are a sustainable solutions manufacturer and rotational molder with the capability to design and custom manufacture various environment-friendly water management systems and other products to help you achieve your sustainability goals.
Our approach to manufacturing
CUSTOM & QUALITY PRODUCTION
From concept design to quality production, Flou inc. provides tailored services to help you get your product and parts to market. We will walk your business through the entire rotational molding and sustainable manufacturing process. Then, we design for production, manufacture parts, and complete products through to final assembly.
CUSTOMER SERVICE EXCELLENCE
We deliver exceptional customer service to our clients. Our team of designers, machinists, and operators is detail-oriented and brings over 50 combined years of experience. As a client, you have direct access to Flou’s Director. In addition, our production crew dedicates their time to quality assurance and safety, providing a level of customer care that you can trust.
AFFORDABLE & COST-EFFECTIVE
We are committed to offering competitive and comparable prices. We work with you to find ways to simplify the manufacturing process while providing a quality Made in Canada custom manufacturing solution with affordable pricing.
CARING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Through purposeful design dedicated to eco-sustainability and green innovation at the core of our manufacturing process, we care and endeavour to create a positive impact on the environment by using recyclable materials in our products.
INVESTING IN STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS
While we can and do design and manufacture ourselves, collaboration and strategic partnerships are core elements of our manufacturing philosophy. We sub-contract for other manufacturers and have a great network that we call on to find the best local, national and international manufacturing solutions for your complete product.
MADE IN CANADA
We’re a proud Canadian rotational molder. We make all of our products in Ontario. Our factory is in the quaint waterfront community of Cobourg, where we create living wage jobs and give back to charities and nonprofits in Northumberland County. In a time when supporting Canada-made is an opportunity to reinvest in the local economy, bring your products and manufacturing needs to our Ontario-based rotational molding facility.
THE ROTOMOLDING PROCESS
The rotational molding process is a high-temperature, low-pressure plastic-forming process that uses heat and biaxial rotation (i.e., angular rotation on two axes) to produce hollow, one-piece parts.
During this process, we place rotomolding polymer (LLDPE) into the rotomold, heat it, and spin it at the perfect rotation to ensure the part has the ideal even wall thickness.
Once the rotomolded part is fully cured, the rotational molds are removed from the rotational molding oven and enter the cooling phase of the process.
Once the rotomolded parts are cooled, they are removed from the molds and prepared for further cooling and finishing. Finally, we reload the molds with polymer, and the process starts again.
We use various materials in this process, including FDA-approved food-grade plastics such as LLDPE (Linear low-density polyethylene) and HDPE (High-density polyethylene) for potable water and food applications.
We have spent significant time in research and development and troubleshooting to refine this process, equipping ourselves while developing the skills and tools to run even the most difficult parts.
We specialize in producing high-quality single, multi and foam layered rotational molded parts.
