Custom Leather Canada Limited is the largest and one of the oldest leather accessory and belt manufacturers in Canada. The company began producing consumer leather products in 1949 and has been in continuous operation since that time. We operate out of a 70,000 sq. foot state of the art factory in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. In 2014 Custom Leather acquired H.A. Sheldon Canada Ltd., the Canadian division of Tandy Brands. This acquisition expanded our distribution channels throughout North America and into the European market.
The company wholesales goods under a number of product lines. Our main business involves the manufacture and import of Men's and Women's belts, which we ship to our customers throughout Canada and the United States. Our belts are sold under our own brands, our customers' private labels, as well as IZOD®, Haggar®, Terra®, Kodiak® and other brands under license. Our customers include all avenues of retail, including major department stores, specialty stores, outlet stores, off course specialty golf retailers, as well as independent men's wear stores. We also manufacture and distribute a wide variety of small leather goods and accessories. A growing part of this business is private label guitar straps, distributed throughout North America. We also manufacture and distribute hunting accessories to the North American market, under our own brands, our customers' private labels, as well as the Ruger® and Winchester® brands under license.
Our Grizzly Fitness Accessories division markets a line of fitness accessories, including weightlifting belts and gloves under our own Grizzly® brand. These products are sold to major sporting goods stores, fitness stores, internet based retailers, and gyms throughout North America. Grizzly is internationally known and distributed to many countries around the world.
We are a customer service oriented company which consistently strives to improve our product, our quality and our design. We believe in continuous improvement and view change as a constant and an opportunity to make ourselves better for our customers and our employees. In January 2000 we achieved ISO 9002 registration, and have since continued to maintain our quality system under these guidelines.
We believe our future as a viable North American manufacturer of consumer leather goods and products lies in our ability to increase our business throughout North American and the world.
We welcome all inquiries for future business development that can benefit Custom Leather and our customers.
