Incorporated in 1987 by Grant R Harrington to promote business in office ergonomics and products in the plastics industry.

Grant had spent 10 years manufacturing rotational molded products and marketing them throughout Western Canada, mainly to the Recreation Vehicle Industry, Food Services and Fish Farming by way of Pelnor Plastic Product Manufacturing Inc.in Lethbridge, Ab.

West Can Marketing Corporation designed and marketed a drop depot system of transportable trailers with 10 - 1.5 cubic yard plastic bins which were used to collect and transport recyclables to a Material Recovery Facility (MRF). Equipment such as balers, granulators and conveyers
were added to the marketing mix as well as specially designed roto molded containers.

Flow molded expertise and equipment was added in subsequent years and Alternative Plastic Products Manufacturing Inc. was incorporated.

Grant is currently retired from the hands on operation of any firm other than West Can Marketing Corporation, but is still active in product design and marketing for Alternative Plastic Products Manufacturing Inc. and assisting firms to find ways to recycle their waste plastic.
