Edmonton is where our story started, and home to our fabric experts who help us navigate the complex world of high-quality fabrics - how they work in different temperatures, on different surfaces, and in extreme conditions.

Calgary was the first branch to manufacture foam-based gear, with a focus on ‘concept to solution’ manufacturing for all industries.

Our Langley branch team are experts in custom foam fabrication, using high-quality foam to protect specialized technology and equipment, medical devices, products for outdoor sports & recreation use. This branch also has expertise in containerized shipping solutions, providing safe and effective solutions for international transport. Langley is our Centre for Excellence in quality management, having ISO 90001 certification and ISO 13485 certification for medical devices.

Our technological innovation comes predominantly from Newmarket, where we have a team of engineers who develop the manufacturing and finishing equipment that gives Norseman’s gear its signature strength and versatility.


Our purpose of giving people and products the opportunity to perform at their best drives our innovation promise. We work alongside our customers and continuously challenge the way we make our gear, making sure that it is made with the right materials and has the best features to get the job done well.

Norseman’s culture of shared expertise and knowledge helps us bridge our customers’ needs with the best materials and craftsmanship. We’ve grown and assembled an in-house team of designers, engineers, and gear experts from around North America, and have invested in technology that can help us make products that outperform the rest.     



Norseman has made a commitment to improving and promoting a culture of safety to ensure our business operates in a manner that protects the health and safety of our employees, customer, business partners, community and our environment.

We have developed and implemented a workplace health and safety management system and we have met the standard for partnerships by receiving our COR (Certificate of Recognition) in Alberta and British Columbia through the COR program developed by the Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA), BC Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA) and the Construction Safety Network.

At Norseman, we take a 360-degree view on sustainability. That means we look at all parts of our business to make sure we’re acting responsibly when it comes to product design, material selection and recycling, manufacturing practices, energy usage in our plants, and transportation and delivery.

Wherever we can, we use recyclable materials and we educate our customers on how to responsibly dispose of the gear they no longer need, either through recycling or reuse. We design our gear to outlast, so that it can be used multiple times across multiple projects, giving our customers the best value but also minimizing waste. And by continuously improving our product designs, we’re able to use eliminate excess materials from our gear, reducing our energy use as much as we can.
