Company

ABOUT US

History: Custom Downstream Systems originated from former Canada-based Metaplast, which manufactured extrusion equipment for over two decades. After the latter was sold to a third party, Franco Pecora, President, and three other associates envisioned a company that would set new standards in the industry for durable and reliable machines while remaining locally owned in Montreal, Canada. They incorporated F.A.B.E Custom Downstream Systems Inc. in 1997 and worked relentlessly to forge that vision into reality.

Almost two decades later and the now family owned business have introduced its solid machinery to various industries and markets around the world including the United States, Mexico, South America and Europe. With over 100 employees that include tenacious tradesmen, talented engineers and accomplished professionals, CDS is able to demonstrate its flexibility in responding to the demands this new global market requires.
