About Champion Fiberglass

Headquartered in Spring, Texas, Champion Fiberglass Inc. is the leading supplier of fiberglass conduit and strut to the industrial, electrical, and mechanical markets. Ours is the most advanced production facility for manufacturing rigid fiberglass conduit in North America, where the company’s proprietary high-speed winding process and high-temperature curing ovens are key to the consistency and quality of these versatile products.

Beginning its production of epoxy fiberglass conduit and fittings in 1988, conduit supplier Champion Fiberglass has steadily grown to reach a number of milestones throughout the years.

In 1989, Champion Fiberglass developed the first conduit from epoxy resins that had flame resistance and low smoke characteristics, meeting the most stringent codes and specifications.

With the arrival of Champion Haz Duct® (XW Type fiberglass conduit) in 2008, the company could now provide conduit for Class 1, Div 2 installations, per the National Electrical Code (NEC).

Champion Fiberglass is an ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 Certified Company. We ensure our customers the highest-quality products and customer satisfaction available in our industry.
