ROBAR INDUSTRIES LTD. was founded in 1958 by Vern Barr, an inventive and dynamic person. It was during this time that he patented the first pipe repair clamp for the waterworks industry that has since become a commonly used product for pipe repairs.

Robar prides itself on our industry leading service and our capacity to provide quality products, including ISO 9001/2000 certified castings and NSF approved fittings. We do this by having duplicate production and warehouse facilities, located, with our main office and foundry, on the west coast of Canada and at our eastern operation located in Quebec.

In 50 years of business growth, we have seen our products used in most municipalities across Canada and, as well, in many industries involving fluid distribution.

We have extensive experience in dealing with the many different types of pipe found in waterworks systems today.

Whether you need a 6 inch service saddle or a 144" fabricated expansion joint, you can rely on Robar to provide you with the product and service that your project requires.

  click for Repair Clamps


ROBAR began by manufacturing Repair Clamps.

The process of manufacturing Repair Clamps, Tapping Sleeves and stainless steel Saddles starts at the shear where the "body" is cut to size from either a sheet or roll of stainless steel.

Our welders manufacture the "closures" which are an integral part of these products.

Closures consist of assemblies called "Finger-bars" or "Bolt-bars."

Stainless steel welded products are "Passivated" before final assembly.

Passivated refers to chemically treating Stainless Steel after welding ("Pickled/Passivated") to return it to its original appearance.


Robar manufactures all of the fasteners use on our products.

Our fastener division currently works with the following materials; HSLA, Stainless Steel and, Ductile in diameters up to 1.


Robar manufactures all of our gaskets used in our product.

The majority of the gaskets fall into two classes. They are either "flat-type" gaskets or "ring-type" gaskets.

Flat gaskets are used for products like Repair Clamps and Ring gaskets are used for Couplings.

As well, Robar is capable of utilizing different rubber compounds depending on your application.


Robar offers an experienced sales team across Canada to provide a dedicated service unique to each region.

As we continue to grow as a company, we are constantly looking for professionals to compliment our USA sales force in order to better service our customers in the USA markets.

These resources, along with a solid dedicated inside sales team, mean that, as a customer, you can depend on professional and courteous people when calling in with your inquiry.
