Scepter Canada was founded by Evald Torokvei in 1949. The company played a significant role in the widespread adoption of plastic Jerry cans in the late 1950s as well as assisted the marine industry in converting to plastic outboard fuel tanks in the 1980s. Today, as part of the Myers Industries group of companies, manufacturers including BRP, Honda, Mercury, Suzuki, Tohatsu and Yamaha use marine fuel tanks manufactured by Scepter. The company's aftermarket fuel products are sold worldwide through an extensive global distribution network.
