Sprung Industries

When driving to Calgary via Hwy 2 it’s difficult to ignore the massive tent-like structure located just past the 409 overpass to High River. Sprung Industries began manufacturing canvas products in 1887 and today their tech driven, eco-friendly structures can be found in hundreds of different applications for some of the world’s leading industries and organizations.

Members of VBIT toured Sprung Industries with President Philip Sprung in December as part of their due diligence in sourcing the best possible structure for Vulcan’s vision of a Discovery Centre. VBIT’s Development Committee have been tasked to match the needs of the community, such as a hotel, cultural and recreational facilities, incubation and convention space, and more, with a building that reflects our communities tech image, needs and budget.
