Fonderie LaPerle Commemorates Canadian Sesquicentennial
Ste. Croix, Quebec, Canada ─ Bibby Ste.-Croix’s Fonderie LaPerle (a division of Canada Pipe), which manufactures street castings, manhole frames, covers, and municipal road castings is joining the celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary. Bibby LaPerle has produced a commemorative manhole cover for the sesquicentennial celebration.
“Bibby LaPerle is proud to produce a commemorative product that will be used in many cities in Eastern Canada,” said Tom Leonard, president of Bibby. “This commemorative manhole cover, featuring the 150th anniversary logo, will be seen by thousands of Canadians and visitors this year in celebration of our country’s sesquicentennial.”
It’s important to the Eastern market to choose a product that is manufactured in Canada by Canadian workers. Manufacturing is the cornerstone of the Canadian economy. Bibby Ste-Croix is a 95-year old Canadian company that employs more than 540 team members at its two Quebec foundries. For each job Bibby creates, three additional Canadian jobs are created contributing to the overall economic strength of our nation. What sets Bibby LaPerle street castings apart from imported products is the CSA certification. The CSA mark signifies manufacturing excellence. It’s added peace of mind when municipalities and cities choose safe and enduring products that meet the stringent CSA standards.
Bibby-Ste-Croix produces cast iron soil pipe and fittings used in drain, waste and vent (DWV) plumbing systems. Fonderie LaPerle manufactures street castings, manhole frames and covers, and municipal road castings. Bibby Ste-Croix is a division of Canada Pipe which is owned by McWane, Inc.

About McWane Ductile
For generations, the McWane family of companies has been an industry leader in water distribution and infrastructure that provide plumbing and clean water works systems. The history of McWane Ductile traces back to 1871, when Charles Phillip (C.P.) McWane entered the foundry business in Lynchburg, Virginia, with his sons, Henry and James Ransom (J.R.). McWane, Inc. was later formed in 1977.
In 1921, J.R. McWane started the McWane Cast Iron Pipe Company, a company that was designed and built as a specialty foundry for small diameter pipe. The McWane Pipe division acquired Pacific States Cast Iron Pipe Company in 1926 with McWane as a 50 percent partner, Atlantic States Cast Iron Pipe Company in 1975, Clow Water Systems Company in 1985, and Canada Pipe Company in 1989. In 2015, these divisions merged to create McWane Ductile.
With over 900 employees, McWane Ductile is recognized today as the country's most experienced manufacturer and supplier of ductile iron pipe. The company's modern facilities offer 3-inch to 36-inch ductile iron pressure pipe and fittings to meet customer needs throughout the United States and Canada.
