Camoplast Solideal is a private Canadian company specializing in components and assemblies for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), particularly polymer components and rubber components including tracks for all-terrain, snow and industrial vehicles. The company was founded in 1982, and is based in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. It also has branches and manufacturing plants in America, Asia and Europe. Camoplast Solideal Research Center is in Magog, Quebec, and has a global workforce of more than 8000 employees.

Camoplast purchased the industrial vehicles division of Bombardier Recreational Products in late August 2004.[1] Bombardier manufactured snow and all-terrain vehicles with rubber tracks from the 1950s. The industrial vehicles division, based in Sherbrooke, Quebec, made tracked utility vehicles such as snow grooming snowcats for skiing, sidewalk snow removal tractors and heavy duty tracked transporters, including the descendant of the original Bombardier Muskeg tractor.

Subsequently Camoplast sold its Track Machines Division to Prinoth, which is part of the Leitner Group [1].

In 2010 Camoplast acquired Groupe Solideal, a company based in Luxembourg that manufactures tires and wheels for the industrial and construction markets.[2]
