About Forestdale

Started in 1997, Forestdale is a privately owned, family based business. Located in beautiful Southern Ontario, our mission is to provide innovative solutions that produce confidence, security and peace of mind.


Forestdale has spent the last 20 years focusing on learning new ideas and systems. This has caused us to shift our thinking of what a standard manufacturing facility looks like, to a new point of view.

YOUR success is OUR success.

We realized that what our customers really need to succeed is a dependable supplier that offers them great service, quality and availability.

To give real service you must offer something that can't be bought or measured. Honesty, integrity and sheer effort are key to this, and that is the backbone and structure of the culture here at Forestdale.

By shifting our main focus to the high quality and rapid availability of our customers outsourced parts, we are able to protect their products and give them a distinct edge in today's market. That's why we like to say... WE GET IT!

Our History
