Ruggidcoast originally started with an idea to bring a new line of Canadian made products for sport fishing and the outdoors.
While creating some of our products we started to work on a number of custom metal projects with our customers. Many of these projects involved working with local artists, and different designers.
As the business started to change Jerrod Pinder the owner of Ruggidcoast started to design a number of custom metal art for various clients, and it grew from there.
As a result a new line metal artwork was created with the help of local First Nations artist Trevor Husband.
Today Ruggidcoast has line of unique of west coast, First nations, and home decor metal artwork.
Many of this artwork is showcased in a number of galleries and gift shops across BC and Washington State in the US. Many of these art pieces have also been sold as far as Europe and Asia.
In addition to our artwork we still continue to develop products for the sport fishing and outdoor community.
We also continue to be very active supporter within the sport fishing community, and an advocate for Pacific salmon survival.
Each product and artwork we sell $1 goes directly to the Pacific Salmon Foundation for salmon enhancement projects.
All of our products are designed, and manufactured locally on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
Everything we carry is 100% Canadian made.
We believe it is important to keep our manufacturing and design within Canada so it benefits our local economy.
The spelling our name Ruggid is for a reason . The "i" in Ruggid stands for our island (Vancouver Island) to remind our customers where our products come from.
