About Morbern

Coated Fabrics Expertise
Made in Canada

Originally established in 1956 by partners MORis Bloomfield and BERNie Stein as a lamination business, the present day version of Morbern – one of the first expanded vinyl manufacturers in the world – started in 1964, in Cornwall, Ontario.

Five years later, the partners sold the company to Whittaker Corp before David, Morris Bloomfield’s son, purchased the business back in 1976.

The rest is – family– history and, in 2014, Morbern celebrated 50 years expertise in coated fabrics.

As a vertically integrated, ISO 9001:2015 certified company, Morbern’s focus has always been on delivering high quality design and performance upholstery solutions for the Contract, Healthcare, Hospitality, Marine, Outdoor, Automotive, Recreational and Transportation markets.
