“I am honored to be a part of the Pelican International success story, particularly at this important time when the Pelican brand is positioning itself around the world as the go-to brand for paddle sports in the mind and heart of consumers”, said Mr. Arsenault. “I look forward to seeing all of you on the water.”

About Pelican International

Pelican International is a world leader in the design and manufacture of kayaks, stand up paddle boards, canoes, pedal boats and fishing boats. For almost 50 years we have leveraged our mastery of thermoforming to deliver durable, quality products at affordable prices. A commitment to innovation, investment in state of the art technology and rigorous quality control standards are the cornerstones of our business philosophy. Our guiding principal is simple and enduring: to bring quality products within reach of all outdoor enthusiasts.

We are committed to protecting the environment and minimizing our ecological footprint. Our initial plant, located in Laval, Quebec, Canada, recycles over 99% of the excess material produced in its manufacturing processes and is equipped with specially designed ducts that redirect heated air from their molding ovens to heat the facility during the fall and winter months.
