Koppers celebrates 40th anniversary










FRANS KOPPERS IMPORTS is proud to announce the celebration of our 40th Anniversary as a top Canadian Wholesale Giftware & Décor Supplier on July 3, 2021 and will be honouring this momentous milestone with numerous events throughout the month of July.

In July 1981, Frans & Ria Koppers immigrated to Canada from The Netherlands with their 3 children. They brought with them a single 40’ container, one half filled with their most valuable personal possessions and the other half filled with copper and brass planters. Frans Koppers Imports was thus founded and established in Mississauga, Ontario where they first settled.

During the late 1980’s sons, Ron and Paul Koppers joined the business full-time and the company continued to diversify in product categories and grew extensively. In 2000 Frans & Ria Koppers, retired and Ron & Paul Koppers took over running the family business. In 2006 having employed additional staff and outgrowing their Mississauga warehouse space, Koppers moved to a larger and more efficient facility in Guelph, Ontario where they are now located.

Fast forward to 2017 and Frans and Ria’s grandchildren, Cameron and Kaitlin Koppers, joined the team to add their expertise to the family business. We are very honoured to have been awarded The Large Supplier of The Year Award by CanGift in 2018.

“We are so proud of what our family has accomplished over the last 40 years, and could not have succeeded without the support of our loyal Customers, fantastic Vendors and valued Staff. We look forward to celebrating with them!” stated Ron Koppers, President of Frans Koppers Imports Ltd. Festivities will include promotions, contests and a cake cutting ceremony with
Frans, Ria and the entire Koppers family.
