Fleming History

S.W. Fleming Limited was founded Jan. 1st. 1959. Originally Fleming manufactured a variety of sheet metal products including metal toilet partitions, metal lockers, pre fabricated fireplaces, drafting tables, commercial coolers and freezers, metal louvers, Polio vaccine tanks, nuclear fuel containers and of course steel doors and frames.

By the late 1960's Fleming had reduced its product line to only metal toilet partitions and steel doors and frames. In 1978, the metal toilet partition business was sold in order to concentrate exclusively on steel doors and frames.

Fleming began in the Non Residential Steel Door and Frame Industry as a small custom manufacturer in the greater Toronto area. A combination of quality, product depth and service (fastest lead times in the industry) allowed Fleming to grow into the largest supplier in this market. By 1980, Fleming realized that if they were to obtain the growth they desired they would have to switch their marketing approach from selling to general contractors directly to selling to distributors nationally who would stock Fleming product, perform final fabrication in their shops and sell directly to their local General Contractors. Between 1980 and 1986, Fleming proceeded to locate distributors in every major city in Canada. Today Fleming is one of the largest manufacturers of Steel Doors and Frames for the Non Residential Building market.

In 1986, Fleming launched into the USA and overseas markets. Today, Fleming is one of the major suppliers to the USA market with distributors in most major centers. Fleming also has distributors in the Middle East, Asia, UK, the Caribbean and Mexico.

All Fleming product is manufactured as a standard from Paintable Galvanneal Steel which is a hot dipped galvanizing process and comes with the industry's only 10 Year Warranty against rust perforation and finished paint film adhesion.

Fleming's reputation as one of North America's fastest growing steel door and frame manufacturers is due to it's commitment to quality, service, product development and the use of state of the art technology. The use of CAD/CAM and real time production planning affords Fleming the best delivery lead times in the industry at competitive prices. The latest in production equipment, tools in plant automation and ISO 9001 registration allows Fleming to offer the highest quality product and services available. Fleming's depth of product offerings and fire rating capabilities combine to make Fleming one of the most complete product lines of Steel Doors and Frames and Steel Fire Doors and Frames in the world.
