Island Thermal Innovations, Crapaud
This company fabricates removable, reusable insulated covers for valves, pumps, and furnaces. They also do plumbing, pipe, and mechanical insulation for commercial properties.
Colin Farley and his business partner Daniel Livingstone started the business in April, 2016. “We are the only company doing this type of work in Atlantic Canada,” says Colin.
“In the future, we hope to hire someone with sewing skills to make the products. We can teach the skills needed if someone is willing to learn to operate an industrial sewing machine. The rubberized material is a bit more difficult to work with than regular fabric. We manufacture the straps as well, and install the grommets.”
