History of Standard product inc lighting
n 1961, Haskel Nathaniel founded Standard Toy Products Ltd., a toy import company. He changed the name of the company to Standard Products Import Ltd. and transitioned the business in the early 70’s to become an importer of a wide variety of products including playing cards, cutlery, luggage, running shoes, safety gloves, electrical tape, and batteries. In 1976, due to Haskel’s health issues, the company was downsized and he operated the business from his home using a public warehouse for distribution purposes.
In 1982, Haskel’s son David joined him while continuing his university studies. He was fortunate to receive a large order from Canadian Tire for electrical tape and then proceeded to expand the range to include utility grade, phasing, and splicing tapes. With this, David renamed the company Standard Products Inc. and built a network of sales agents to represent them across Canada selling to electrical wholesalers.
In late 2018, with fixtures becoming a larger part of Standard’s sales, discussions commenced to consider the benefits of merging Standard & Stanpro together. It was decided that the combination of the two would provide strategic synergies that would position it to become one of the largest lighting companies in Canada and add capabilities to provide increased value in the marketplace. The announcement to merge was made in January 2019 and completed on January 1, 2020.
