About Us

Our History

Fruitland® Manufacturing was established in 1957 as a tool & die shop, machine repair facility and manufacturer of custom-designed production machinery. Our customers were primary steel manufacturers and metal working industries across southern Ontario, Canada.

We have since expanded on a world-wide scale as the manufacturer of heavy duty Fruitland® Vacuum Pumps. The RCF500 Vacuum Pump became the flagship for Fruitland® as a result of unparalleled success with oil clean-up operations in Siberia, tank cleaning on aircraft carriers, the J.F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida and by environmental Pump Truck Operators everywhere. Our Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps (also known as Sliding Vane Vacuum Pumps) are trusted to function in the most severe conditions with minimal maintenance, from the harsh deserts of the Middle East, the severity of the Arctic Circle to the rugged oil fields all over the world.

Fruitland® Manufacturing is keeping pace with new I.P. in the form of patented vacuum technology with assistance from the National Research Council - IRAP.  Modern technologies have required commitment in the form of large investments into new C.N.C. machining equipment and state-of-the-art CAD/CAM systems. Virtually any type of custom machining can be performed ranging from one piece to multiple piece production runs. All our C.N.C. or conventional machines and equipment are operated by our highly qualified and dedicated staff who are committed to satisfying customer needs with superior quality, excellent value, and first rate customer service.

Fruitland® Manufacturing has an integral Quality Management System which is registered to ISO 9001:2008 with ASACERT.

Now under the leadership of a successive entrepreneur, President Chris White continues to develop the company to new heights of achievement. Today, Fruitland® remains a world leader in the vacuum pump arena catering to myriad industries requiring high quality and reliable products.
