Conteco Manufacturing Pole Basket Molds

After weeks of experimenting with homemade baskets at the kitchen table and then testing them out in the mountains, we finally developed a design that left the perfect maple leaf imprint I had imagined. It was now time to go shopping for a mold maker.

It was important to us to us to find a Canadian company to make the mold and who would manufacture the baskets in Canada. We were fortunate to find Conteco Mold and Plastics in Maple Ridge, British Columbia.

We were sold on the fact that Conteco has over thirty years of experience and a great reputation in producing high quality and durable plastic products. Chris and Kid basically held our hands and walked us through a whole new world learning about product design, engineering, injection molding and plastic manufacturing.

From Conteco’s engineers to its mold makers, their philosophy is “that quality comes from making their clients an integral part of the mold manufacturing process.”

We can definitely attest to this …we went back and forth many times from testing the baskets in the mountains and then working with them to tweak the design of the mold. All the effort and collaboration paid off as we have produced not only fun and funky maple leaf baskets but they are also durable and functional for many different recreational activities.
