"Fencing Equipment of Canada" was founded by Fran Wetterberg in the early 1940s. Dad Wetterberg (Fran) was integral in developing fencing in Alberta in the 1930's and was a long-time coach of the University of Alberta and Edmonton Fencing clubs. Fran was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame as a Fencing "builder". Fran was the recipient of numerous achievement awards for his contribution to building the sport of fencing.
Jim (his son) and Janet (daughter in law) assisted from the late 1960s and upon the retirement of Fran took over completely and expanded to include all of Canada. Now onto the third generation. Shannon (daughter) and her husband Phil have moved the business to Vancouver Island and have updated the website to improve our online services for our customers
In an effort to keep the cost of quality equipment affordable, we buy only from the manufacturer and sell directly to the fencer (no middleman). We have built our business on ensuring we only carry high quality products and standing behind all our sales.
