About Us

Gerald W. Clarke, founder of Ideal Pipe, was a man of vision, determination, and dedication to the Canadian drainage industry.  His vision began as a contractor in 1968, installing millions of meters of municipal and farm drainage pipe systems across Southwestern Ontario.  During those humble beginnings, Gerry recognized the need for higher quality and more readily available pipe products in the industry and began manufacturing HDPE plastic drainage pipe in 1979.

Today Ideal Pipe is an innovative pipe manufacturer, with product design, manufacturing, testing and technical support of HDPE plastic pipe systems.

Ideal Pipe produces products and solutions utilized in today’s agricultural, commercial, residential, recreational and highway drainage and storm-water management and treatments.

Originally based out of Southwestern Ontario, Ideal Pipe has grown to include manufacturing facilities in Eastern Ontario and Western Manitoba. Over the years, Ideal Pipe has developed relationships with drainage contractors, distributors and engineers throughout Canada.

At Ideal Pipe, we continue to provide the industry with new solutions and innovative products. Vision, determination, and dedication in our industry for higher quality and service is our mission, as it was with our founder.
