Who we are

Can-Cell Industries Inc. is a service-driven distributor that specializes in building materials and builders’ hardware products. Ever since our founding in 1976, Can-Cell Industries Inc. has been 100% Canadian owned and operated. We have an Edmonton-based head office, eight distribution centers, a recycling facility, and over 40 professional inside and outside sales people to meet all of your needs. Our services are offered through much of Canada: everywhere west of Thunder Bay, Ontario, including all of northern Canada. We understand how important the environment is and, as such, we distribute and produce many residential, commercial, and industrial products that help to conserve energy, which also saves our customers money. We are committed to quality, exceptional customer service, and providing our customers with competitively priced products. We strive to make our customers’ experience with us hassle free and, as such, we sell our products through E-Commerce, so that you can conveniently and easily obtain what you need.

Can-Cell is an Environmentally-Conscious Company

We focus on distributing eco-friendly products that pertain to the improvement of buildings and properties.
These  include environmentally certified insulation and building materials for residential and commercial spaces.

Our goal is to be a leader in our industry by exceeding our customers’ expectations in service and products. We accomplish this through our involved service philosophy, which starts with employees who are knowledgeable, friendly, cooperative, and embrace the team concept. We encourage eagerness and enthusiasm to serve our customers, suppliers, and fellow associates. We teach empathy and the ability to learn and anticipate needs in an effort to be one step ahead of our clients’ needs. Our customers’ trust in our timely and quality service is one of our most treasured resources.
