Transportation requirements are met through air, highway, and rail service. Famed for the Gimli Glider, the Gimli Airport – immediately adjacent to the plant - has a 6,400 ft. airstrip capable of handling air cargo and executive jets and is only an hour away by car from Winnipeg’s James Armstrong Richardson International Airport.  Highways 7, 8, and 9 link Gimli to Winnipeg and the rest of Manitoba. CP Rail provides a Gimli-to-Winnipeg rail freight service. We routinely ship hog flooring kits to our distributors around the World.
