Driven to innovate, deliver quality products and be a reliable partner
Last year Corma was presented with the Leadership Award of Excellence at the 2016 Ontario Export Awards and the company is today recognized as a leading producer of machinery and die tooling equipment for the corrugated plastic pipe manufacturing industry.
“We were a very small start-up when we began in 1973,” recalls Manfred Lupke, Founder, President, Chief Executive Officer and an inductee into the Plastics Academy Hall of Fame.
“Our company consisted of myself – a mechanical engineer, a colleague of mine and my wife who was responsible for the entire office.”
Today, the company employs over 250 people and has delivered over 1,300 machines to more than 100 countries. With headquarters in Concord, Ontario, Canada, Corma has regional sales and services offices in Europe, Asia and Latin America and a manufacturing facility in China.

By delivering a patented range of pipe manufacturing machinery, dies and die tooling equipment, downstream equipment for manufacturing PVC pipes and polyethylene and polypropylene plastic tubing, Corma is winning new customers.
“We are driven to innovate, deliver quality products and be a reliable partner for our existing and future customers,” says Lupke. “We have over 1,000 international patents and many more in various stages, and from a manufacturing perspective, China remains a very important part of our value chain. We are proud to have been one of the earlier Canadian companies to visit the country and we are more than happy with the close relationship we enjoy with our friends in China.”
