Company

Cabot Shipping Supplies was founded in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1973 by Arnold and Roberta Harrington. With its roots in the Maritimes, Cabot supplied all industries, mainly fishing, forestry, manufacturing and other small businesses.

Today, Cabot employs over 20 people in its Burnside location, selling to all of Atlantic Canada and beyond to the rest of Canada.

Where Cabot started as a “Tape House”, it's now the largest packaging supplies and material handling supplier in the region. In the 1990’s, Cabot added a storage product division and has been a Rousseau Metal Dealer ever since, selling quality shelving, modular drawers, and workbenches. In 2000, Cabot added a safety catalogue to its offerings and now counts safety and personal protection as one of its largest and fastest growing lines.

Cabot Shipping Supplies is still a family-owned business, run by the second generation of the Harrington family. We pride ourselves in providing the best service possible, from the sales force to the order desk and lastly to the shipping department. We continuously try to improve in all facets of the business and strive to make your experience better every time.
