Bralan was formed 65 years ago in South Western Ontario’s farm land. A young teenage boy crossed the ocean from Italy to Canada with little resources. Consistent drive and resilience coupled with passion and a strong work ethic paved the way for Bralan’s success. Today Bralan is still owned and operated by the family. Its foundation is in South Western Ontario but its roots continue to expand throughout Canada, The USA, Europe and Africa. Bralan is engaged in agriculture, transportation, biomass and green energy.
Identifying a gap in eco-friendly options in the ice melt industry, Bralan formed North Element Inc. in 2013. The first homogeneous de-icer in the marketplace. 99.9% pure, upcycled sodium chloride product scientifically engineered to meet different market demands. Vertically integrated – Mineral Owner and Supplier. Manufacturer. Blow Mold Jug and Bottle Production on-site. Bulk Freight Carrier. Processor and Packer. Warehousing. Sales and Distribution.
