Where It Started
Bamboo Innovations’ started as a small construction business in Medicine Hat, Alberta, with one guy, one truck and a garage full of lumber. Along came a girl with big ideas and extensive knowledge in the business world and when the two combined their expertise they discovered a new, sustainable product that hadn’t been well-known in Canada. After working with the materials, the pair recognized that its combination of durability and beauty were unmatched in the building world, so they travelled to Cali Bamboo in sunny San Diego, California where they could find out how to get their hands on more of those eco-friendly products.
How We've Grown
Established in 2010, Bamboo Innovations was better known as Deadbolt Bamboo. Since then we have re-branded with a new name, re-located into larger warehouse spaces, expanded our team and taken on more complex and innovative bamboo inspired projects. Adding new building products like flooring, and new design products such as natural cork wall tiles, Bamboo Innovations is able to keep up with the growing demands of the market.
Where We're Going
Bamboo Innovations is dedicated to promoting bamboo and recycled materials as a means to improve the use of the limited resources we have on our planet. The quality of the products we offer is what sets us apart and by working together with our suppliers we can continue to provide our customers with superior bamboo materials.
