Family Owned and Operated
Since the Hartman family – Linda Duval, Paul Hartman and Steve Hartman – first opened the doors of MasterNet Ltd back in 1988, we have been specializing in the manufacture of all types of plastic netting. Our Toronto-based company began on a shoestring: with one used extruder bought at an auction, some hopes and dreams, and a whole lot of hard work. Twenty years later, our consistently profitable company is still pushing forward, with more force than ever before, and we have no intention of ever letting up.
A Lesser-Known Art Form
We believe that manufacturing netting is an art: one that can only be learned through hands-on practice, dedication and the drive to succeed. Each industry we’ve tapped into, from produce to poultry and from automotive to aquaculture, has provided us with unique learning experiences. Committed to innovation and investment, we use these valuable insights to rethink our products and processes so that we can make them more efficient, and above all, more environmentally friendly.
Little Fish Triumphs
In December 2003, we purchased Dupont Canada’s extruded plastic netting operations - namely their line of the original patented plastic netting. MasterNet now owns and manufactures it as its own. Made of lightweight and durable polyethylene, these products are used in a wide range of packaging, fencing and protective covering applications. The acquisition of the aforementioned, enabled us to obtain additional equipment and technical know-how and has since proven to be the perfect complement to our existing product line.

MasterNet Ltd is the originator of the Bottle Sleeve: a new sleeve trend now used in a large percentage of liquor and wine stores. The Bottle Sleeve is kept at the cashier station and slipped over one or more bottles after purchase. The potential benefits are twofold: for your cashiers, they’re much easier to use and more effective than single bottle bags; and they’re an excellent, inexpensive way to protect bottles.
Bottle Sleeves are manufactured using reprocessed and or off/grade plastics and should be brought back to your local liquor or wine store for reuse wherever possible.
MasterNet Ltd Protective Cylinder Sleeves are a unique mesh product that have been developed specifically to protect compressed gas cylinders. Normally when cylinders are returned for refilling, they are taken out of circulation if damaged. Much time and money then goes into removing their old labels, repainting the cylinders and re-labelling them. These low-cost sleeves are simply slipped over each cylinder to provide effective protection against such damages.
Available in a wide array of colours, Protective Cylinder Sleeves are designed to cover a large range of diameters, from the 4” medical cylinder to propane tanks of 30” or larger, and may be ordered in any quantity. Most custom colours are available upon request.
