Ocean Pipe - More Than 125 Years in Vancouver

Ocean Pipe can trace its roots back more than 100 years, to the day when a family business stocking building material supplies set up shop in Vancouver. Through acquisitions and expanded business lines in the heavy building materials industry, a small pipe division grew to become Ocean Pipe. Now, Ocean Pipe is an industry leader in concrete pipe design and production. We dedicate resources and expertise along each step of production with extreme quality control. For customers, this translates into consistent, reliable and in-spec products.

Ocean Concrete - A History of Providing Local Solutions

Ocean Concrete started from modest beginnings. A small, family-operated distributor of building material supplies set up shop in Vancouver in the late 1800's. More than 125 years later, Ocean Concrete is leading the industry in large-scale, high-profile, complex and challenging projects in British Columbia.  Expanding to Victoria from its early beginnings in 1939, we delivered the first load of ready mixed concrete on the island.  Today, we proudly showcase the only state of the art wet batch facility on Vancouver Island.  This system ensures quality and consistency for today's complicated building specifications.  We are able to facilitate large concrete pours and efficiently and environmentally meeting the needs of Southern Vancouver Island contractors.
