    It all started almost 5 decades ago…

    Centaur Products was first founded in 1973 by David Wilson who wanted to start a company in gym equipment and the sports business in order to provide clients with the very best high-performance products available in the industry. Since then, Centaur Sports has grown to become Canada’s largest specialty contractor with our headquarters in Burnaby and regional offices in Calgary, Guelph, and Halifax.

    Throughout the 1990’s and 2000’s Centaur worked closely with the human performance lab in Calgary, AB, to help design the world’s safest sports floors.
