Morbern named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies

Posted on

Morbern has been named as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. The award acknowledges Morbern’s dedication to innovative, world-class business practices.

For the second year in a row, Cornwall, Ontario-based Morbern has been named as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies organization remains one of the world’s leading business awards programs recognizing companies for innovative, world-class business practices.

“It is such an honor to be included with this select group of companies,” said Morbern CEO Mark Bloomfield. “I couldn’t be more proud of the entire Morbern team for achieving this recognition for two consecutive years. If you think about the obstacles that we had to overcome during the past 12 months, this is truly a remarkable accomplishment.”

The 2021 Best Managed program award winners are among the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues of more than $25 million, demonstrating investment in talent and technology, innovation in a competitive environment, and an increased focus on global competition. Each entrant is examined in four categories of its structure: strategy, capability, commitment and return on investment.

Canada’s Best Managed Companies is run by a group comprising Deloitte, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Smith School of Business, TMX and Canadian Business Magazine. Each year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the caliber of their management abilities and practices.

Introducing Varsity

Posted on

The billion-dollar world of sports connects fans from around the globe, with bonds that run deep and a camaraderie that can last a lifetime. Fellow fans indicate their alliance by sporting team colors. A dual-colored bumper sticker, jersey or t-shirt is a sure sign of someone’s home team.

That’s why Morbern created Varsity, a colorful line of vinyls geared toward the sports enthusiast and designed for the hospitality market and the marine aftermarket. With guidance from the color experts at Pantone, it carefully selected the most popular color combinations for teams nationwide. Designed to increase sales by tapping into team spirit, this product can cover anything: stadium seats, golf carts, grills, chairs, commemorative balls, tote and duffel bags, bar stools, cushion-topped coolers, coasters and tabletops. Anything that can be covered in vinyl, can become a team player.

“In the world of commercial interiors and product design, color is a major factor in attracting the consumer,” said John Weaver, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Morbern. “Varsity taps into the emotional response color generates, and gives restaurants, hotels, marine companies and product manufacturers a new way of appealing to their customers.”

The stats on Varsity make it a winner. High abrasion resistance (no significant wear after 100,000 double rubs), cleanability, and it’s housed on a 100 percent recycled, green cardboard tube. Formulated without phthalates, flame resistant additives and microbial additives, Varsity is compliant with CA TB 117-2013, NFPA 260 and UFAC Class 1 and is AB2998 compliant.

Varsity is part of MorGreen™—the story of Morbern’s journey toward sustainability and the products that exemplify it. MorGreen™ products have been reformulated to lower environmental impact and ensure most materials contain bio-based renewable ingredients.


Available in 14 standard colorways, with the ability to create custom collegiate colors. Learn more about Varsity here:

Light on Additives, Bantam Still Packs a Heavy

Posted on

When Morbern created its latest product addition to its line of commercial interior vinyls, the task was to make something different – something powerful yet sustainable. The research team delivered Bantam and Morbern knew they’d found a winner.


Bantam packs a powerful punch of performance for contract and healthcare interiors. Often the most challenging environments in commercial design, healthcare interiors demand not only high performance in critical spaces, but also health and sustainability attributes.


It’s lack of additives is what makes it a lightweight winner. Free of anti-microbial additives, phthalates and flame retardants yet CAL TB-117 compliant, this fighter of a fabric shows no wear after 100,000 double rubs and is cold crack resistant to -25° F. It spars with stains like cola, coffee and ketchup, and then easily cleans with soap and water.


Bantam’s environmentally friendly attributes means it falls under the MorGreen label, Morbern’s initiative to create products that are sustainable, responsible and leave as little environmental impact as possible.


Bantam features an anti-static slip finish, urine stain resistance, sulfide stain resistance and oil resistance. Its palette of 10 colorways comes in earthy shades of blue, red, green, orange, yellow and gray.



  1. Apple (Green)
  2. Cosmic (Blue)
  3. Dove (Light Gray)
  4. Firelight (Yellow)
  5. Ghost (Medium Gray)
  6. Ginger (Orange)
  7. Inkberry (Purple)
  8. Iron (Dark Gray)
  9. Rabbit (Taupe)
  10. Tropical (Red)
