In 2002, Sureguard Security Products, Inc. introduced quality plastic bollard covers called Sureguard Shields. The Kitchener, Ontario base-company was Canada's only manufacturer of bollard covers. That same year, Encore Commercial Products, Inc. in Michigan, also began manufacturing a quality plastic bollard cover called Post Guard. During their first 10 years, Sureguard and Post Guard enjoyed wide success in Canada and the U.S.
In 2012, the assets of Sureguard were acquired by Encore's owners through their Bollard Guard Products Corporation. This marriage was ideal since it allows us to offer more competitive shipping arrangements for Canadian customers using Post Guard covers. In addition, Canada now has one-stop shopping and faster access to a large variety of competitively priced property protection products.
