Hi- Point Industries

Proudly manufacturing quality products that help protect our environment.


Our History


Hi- Point Industries was formed in 1983 with the business objective of producing environmentally safe, all-natural oil absorbents for the containment of hydrocarbon spills. In 1984, Oclansorb® was created and our process patented. 


Oclansorb® is an organic, nontoxic, non-abrasive, lightweight industrial oil absorbent. Our product is made from naturally occurring blonde sphagnum peat moss, which is harvested from Central Newfoundland, it is the original peat-based absorbent.  Oclansorb® has proven to be effective in large spills throughout the world, including the Alaskan Valdez spill and the Deep-Water Horizon spill.


In 1991 Hi- Point Industries was privately incorporated in Newfoundland, Canada. Today the company is still proudly owned and operated by the Butler family. 


Since the success of Oclansorb®, Hi- Point Industries has expanded its product line to include numerous environmental and horticultural products. These products are sold both locally and exported to various markets around the world. Hi- Point Industries now manufacturers a complete line of oil response and containment products including:

  • Absorbent Sorb-Sox and Pillows
