Company Background

Calibre is a family owned and operated business, with strong values that have helped us succeed over the years. We genuinely care about our relationships, and we work hard to always go above and beyond for our customers

 

Company History

Established in 1985, Calibre was founded by Mansur Kanchwala who decided to take a chance and open his own part-time business from home. More than 30 years later, he has never looked back.

As business began to grow, we moved to a small 1,200 sq. ft. industrial unit in Aurora, Ontario.  With no loading dock, trailers would have to be unloaded by hand and stacked on the mezzanine above the office.

With continued success, we moved from one facility to the next, always expanding to serve our growing customer base. Today, we are still a family owned and operated Canadian business and we have grown immensely since we started. We now have over 50 employees, and operate out of a 130,000 square foot facility to better accommodate our national customer base and ever-growing inventory of products.
