Baseboarders™ has one foot in Canada and one in the United States and remains committed to customers in both countries. Originally designed and invented near Vancouver, BC in Canada, our unique baseboard heater covers continue to be manufactured in the region. Customers across Canada are served from this location. Local customers are encouraged to arrange for local pick up if they prefer to avoid shipping costs and/or have specific timing requirements. The company serves US customers from its' quick ship location in Leominster, Massachusetts where we also powder coat special order colors.
Baseboarders™ is very proud of its' Canadian heritage. These exceptional baseboard heater covers were conceived by founder Jon Buss, a native of Ontario who had made his way west to BC. Jon’s concept and design was a response to a frustrating problem he encountered while looking to remodel the baseboard heaters in his own home. Fortunately, Jon had a degree in Industrial and Product Design, as well as the drive and determination of an entrepreneur. He created a complete system of easy slip-on covers with appropriate accessories that are made better than the original components they replace. Each piece is made with sturdy, high quality galvanized steel which means they will not rust. Rust is a common problem with original heater components. He was also mindful of safety concerns regarding open access to heating elements. Jon solved this issue by creating one piece panel designs that reduce access to dangerous parts while allowing for necessary airflow to maintain heater performance. Cheers to Canadian ingenuity, dogged determination and hard work!
Manufacturing in North America means that we can be highly responsive to our customer’s needs. From very short lead times, tightly controlling production quality, to providing a level of product customization, it is difficult to beat what local manufacturing has to offer. We continue to appreciate the opportunity to work with great people and doing our part to support the regional economy. Without the dedication of these great people, we would not be able to bring you the best baseboard heater covers on the planet.
