  • Layfield started as Layfield Plastics in the 1950s. Owned and operated by Eric Layfield, the company existed for over 20 years as a small, single location plastics fabrication business.
  • In 1978, Eric Layfield retired and sold his company to the Rose family. Tom Rose, who continues to this day as the company's President and CEO, saw Layfield as the perfect platform on which to build a much larger plastics processing company.
  • Our initial installations were sump pit liners to the Alberta oil patch and canal liners through the 70's and 80's.
  • In 1983, Layfield acquired Calgary Plastics, which provided Layfield with manufacturing capabilities for polyethylene products.
  • In 1988 Layfield's Head Office was relocated to Vancouver, and in 1992, Layfield began its expansion into the United States, establishing a branch operation in Seattle, Washington.
  • In 1997 Layfield purchased Geogard Linings in Toronto and extended our installation crews to the east.
  • In 2004 CW Neal Corp in San Diego was added to the Layfield Group bringing world class floating cover technology to the group. CW Neal was formed in 1969 in San Diego California. CW Neal pioneered the use of floating covers for potable water reservoirs with a world wide reputation for cover technology.
  • Also in 2004, Layfield expanded its manufacturing plant in Richmond and installed a three layer co-extrusion line to produce packaging and construction films, and to expand its line of geomembrane products.
  • In 2008, Layfield purchased all the assets of the Aqua Dam and Diversion Canada, including Canadian distribution rights, the business trade name, and the Canadian registered trademark.
  • In 2009, Layfield started a dedicated Service Group to provide inspection and maintenance services and offer installations of specialty geosynthetics such as Aqua Dams and sludge dewatering products.
  • Between 2010 and 2013 Layfield expanded its facilities in San Diego, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton to support continued North American growth.
  • In 2013 Layfield commissioned a major wide width extrusion line designed to produce standard grade and high performance geomembranes and film products.
  • In 2014, Layfield will install a state-of-the-art roll-to-roll automated fabrication machine that can weld up to 5 panels wide.

By investing in acquisitions and technology, expanding and diversifying its product offerings, and by focusing on robust and emerging markets, Layfield Environmental Containment has grown from a one-store plastics company into a vertically integrated, industry leading geomembrane and specialty geosynthetics company manufacturing environmental, construction and industrial products.

"We were offered Geogrids made overseas from a small distributor, but we declined as their testing were suspect and they had no reputation in the market. We will only work with reputable suppliers like Layfield as their Geogrids perform as per recognized specifications." Kenny, Engineering & Scientific Consultant,
