As a market leader in the reimaging of petroleum canopies with engineered fiberglass cladding, FormaShape has been regularly sought out for retail reimaging projects by small and large petroleum retailers and signage designers.

Petro Canada Retail Re-ImagingThe hugely successful, early 1990's award-winning Petro Canada re-imaging project of over 1500 Petro Canada Gas Stations marked the first of many major architectural reimaging projects in which FormaShape's innovative architectural fiberglass was selected for its highly sought-after design advantages and superior material characteristics.

More recently, Formashape™ has developed a cost effective re-imaging solution to enable smaller retail petroleum marketers to achieve the premium facility branding standards of larger competitors. The FormaShape™ Canopy Cladding Kit is a stock canopy cladding product that can be customized to meet the individual needs and branding objectives of smaller petroleum retailers. The Canopy Cladding Kit provides a premium image solution with a rapid delivery timetable.


Small Retailer Re-Imaging

Centex Petroleum, a Calgary-based retail petroleum business, was the first of FormaShape's clients to benefit from this innovation in petroleum facility branding.

Alnoor Bhura, Managing Partner of Centex Petroleum is delighted with the success of the program to date: "With the help of FormaShape, we have been able to create a stunning facility brand image that is equal, if not better than, those displayed by North America's largest petroleum retail corporations - at a fraction of the cost," Bhura stated.
