Company History

TruNorth Decking is the largest Canadian manufacturer of composite and PVC decking and the only Canadian manufacturer of rice hull fiber reinforced composite decking. TruNorth Decking’s parent company has been an Ontario business for over 58 years.

TruNorth got its start in the business of plastics and later added plastic recycling. Jon Hensen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at TruNorth Composites, remembers working in his grandfather’s plastics company while growing up. TruNorth is still family-owned and operated.

When TruNorth bought Clubhouse Decking from a Michigan-based company in 2018, they moved all of its manufacturing to Ontario as well. In addition, TruNorth’s sister company EPL Plastics, with the capacity to recycle 200 million lbs annually from a 100,000 sq ft building, is located next to the TruNorth manufacturing facility and provides the recycled plastic and technical support for TruNorth’s products.
