Park Derochie's first large field painting contract involved blasting and painting the tanks at the Bowden Refinery in 1956. Subsequently, the company has specialized in tanks, underground coatings, and complex structures such as bridges.
Park Derochie has gained a reputation as being one of the few painting contractors that will offer lump sum pricing on field touch-ups in refineries and power plants.
Park Derochie was the first Alberta contractor to hold certification from the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) for the field application of coating complex structures (QP1) and is now the only Canadian company to hold the combination of QP1, QP2, QP3 and QP6 certifications.
With our 75,000+ square feet of enclosed area, we are capable of handling almost any shop project. We currently have six individual sandblast and paint facilities, and five overhead cranes, up to 20 tons each. We can accommodate piping, structural steel, skids, and stick-form fireproofing.
Our shop facilities allow us to accommodate larger diameter pipe for pipelines. We are certified to apply any approved products!
All cranes and paint facilities are positioned with truck bays under cover, which allows for fast loading and off-loading. Our facility is setup for minimal handling, which allows a faster turn around, and less chance of damage to the product. All shop work is inspected by a NACE certified inspector.
