The Paragon Advantage
Safety First Culture
We have established a safety culture committed to zero harm to the PPC team, others that we work with, and project stakeholders. We have a proven track record of safety excellence in the heavy industrial sector, and maintain a Certificate of Recognition (COR) from the Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA) and maintain memberships with Avetta, Comply Works and ISNetworld.
Protecting the Environment
We all have a duty and responsibility to do our part in protecting the environment. Recognizing environmental concerns and potential hazards, and taking the necessary steps to control them is an important aspect of our safety program. Paragon will continue to train our workers to improve their knowledge and awareness on good environmental standards.
Certified Applicator of Coating Materials
PPC delivers a complete range of painting and coating services designed to solve all types of corrosion-related problems. For liquid coatings, we carry applicator approvals for most of the major pipeline clients (like TC Energy, IPL, Pembina and Enbridge), and are approved applicators of most coating materials (like Denso, CANUSA, Hempel, Devoe, Carboline, Cloverdale and SPC) . Our metallic coatings (weld overlay or thermal spray metalizing) are approved for use in the oilsands, oil & gas, pulp & paper, and power generation industries.
Large Fleet of Field-Ready Equipment
We have a large fleet of coating equipment ready to be depolyed to your site. The fleet includes innovative equipment like the VersaCoat system, and time-tested and perfected compressors, blast-skids, thermal spray and liquid coating systems. More importantly (and critical to our success), we have a large staff of competent permanent and seasonal staff to support your project. No project is too big, or too small for PPC.
Large Shop Facility
Our coating shop facilities cover approx. 15,000 sq ft, with over 40T of lifting capacity in our largest bays. If your project doesn’t fit inside our buildings, we can coat it in our yard, or come to your facility to complete the work.
Multi-Process Trained Applicators
Most of our coating applicators are trained in both thermal spray and industrial paint/coating processes. This allows us to deploy one crew to your project, and execute both thermal spray and coating scopes as required. This reduces mobilization/demobilization costs, and has proven to improve the overall execution schedule.
Our corporate resume includes project experience on refinery, petrochemical, power generation, public infrastructure, pipeline, gas plant, and gas compression facilities.
No Project Too Big Or Too Small
Paragon FusionClad (PPC) Ltd. is the leading Industrial Painting and Industrial Coating contractor in Western Canada with both field and shop operations. Having well established relationships with some of the largest midstream companies, Paragon has displayed its ability to meet the toughest coating specification requirements in the energy industry.
PPC has established a safety culture committed to zero harm to the PPC team, others that we work with, project stakeholders and the environment. We have a proven track record of safety excellence in the heavy industrial sector.
PPC’s owner and founder started installing thermal spray (metalized) coatings for sour service corrosion protection in 1997. Most installations were heavy industrial, in-situ, confined space applications on process vessel internals.; working in this challenging environment instilled a safety first culture at PPC from onset, which carries on today.
PPC maintains a Certificate of Recognition (COR) from the Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA) and is also a member of ISNetworld, Comply Works and Avetta.
Largest Project To Date:
Paragon FusionClad (PPC) Ltd was started in 1997, with the consolidation of two separate businesses; Paragon Protective Coatings and FusionClad Superalloys. Paragons’ focus was on-site thermal spray and industrial paint and liquid coatings (for the midstream and downstream oil and gas industry), while FusionClads’ focus was shop-based proprietary fused and welded coatings (for the upstream oil and gas industry).
By the early 2000s, the core services provided by the business were in place, and Paragon was in a position to capitalize on the massive industrial growth in Western Canada;
* Shop-based welding and fused coating business growth required greater investment in automation and plasma transferred arc (PTA) welding equipment. This equipment, and its newer replacements, are still in use today to provide tungsten carbide weld overlays for mining and downhole tool components and CRA (corrosion resistance alloy) overlays for petrochemical and chemical processing components.
* On-site coating business (metallizing, industrial painting and industrial coatings) has seen continuous growth over the last 20 years, requiring us to grow our own fleet of mobile equipment to meet the needs of our clients. We’ve also learned what equipment works, and doesn’t work in the field. Those experiences have allowed us to develop specialized hardware; either through modification of existing equipment, or development of our own proprietary equipment (ie VersaCoat).
This business growth in Western Canada required, and could only be supported by, significant investment in our people;
- ongoing professional development of field- and shop-based personnel includes technical, safety and people-management training.
- promotion of employees into supervisory and management positions is paramount to business continuity, allowing us to keep our valuable, hard-earned skills in-house.
- hiring of skilled personnel and subject matter experts (SMEs) to compliment hands-on-experience already within the organization.
As a result of the investment in our people, Paragon FusionClad project execution is now supported with a management team with over 200 years of combined experience in the following fields;
- Metallurgical and Mechanical Engineering
- Industrial Construction and Project Management
- Quality Control and Quality Assurance
- Safety Management
- Cost and Schedule Control/Management
- Weld Overlays, Thermal Spray Coatings, Industrial Coatings and Painting, Abrasive Blasting
Paragon FusionClad is based in the industrial heartland of Western Canada and offers the largest selection of on-site and shop-based coating processes and materials.
