IPAC Receives Bronze Level Standing in PAR Program

GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB, August 30, 2019:  IPAC Services Corporation was announced as PAR certified at the bronze level in a national press release by the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB) yesterday.  This designation is a matter of great pride at IPAC and a testament to their commitment in maintaining good Indigenous business relations. 

“Receiving PAR certification is validation that our company is a best practices organization in the field of Indigenous relations,” comments Rochelle Killins, Director of Communications.

Derrick Mysko, IPAC’s President adds, “We recognize the significance of partnering with Indigenous businesses goes beyond our aspirations, it further enhances prosperity for the communities.”

The Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) program is internationally unique in that it is the only credible certification program with an exclusive focus on Indigenous relations.  To become certified at the bronze level, IPAC had to participate in the online reporting program, go through an independent external verification process, and finally a review by a PAR Jury composed of Indigenous business people. Assignment of standing is made based on corporate performance in employment, business development, community investment and community engagement. 

The PAR program and this certification shows that IPAC is a good business partner, a great place to work and that they are committed to their corporate social responsibility policies.

Indigenous Trades Scholarship

GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB, August 9, 2019: As a full service general contractor, IPAC provides construction and maintenance services to a broad base of heavy industrial sectors of Western Canada. Many of IPAC’s clients are in the natural resource extraction industry.  As most natural resource development in Canada takes place on the traditional territory of Indigenous peoples, much of IPAC’s work activities are also completed on or near these lands.  As a testimony of our commitment to give back and to maintain positive Indigenous relations, IPAC is excited to work with Indspire and offer the IPAC Indigenous Trades Scholarships.

Indspire is an Indigenous registered charity that invests in the education of Indigenous people.  In 2017-18, Indspire disbursed $14.2 million through over 4,900 bursaries and scholarships to First Nations, Inuit, and Metis students.

The benefits of these scholarships are twofold as they promote the apprenticeship and trades programs of Canada, while supporting the students in our neighbouring communities.

Mission Statement

IPAC Industrial Powder Coating- Open for Business!

GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB, May 6, 2019:  IPAC Services Corporation introduces industrial powder coating to their suite of abrasive blasting and coating services with the installation of two new large industrial powder coating ovens in their north painting facility at #100, 9101 – 150 Ave. Grande Prairie, AB. 

“In addition to now being the largest and most technically advanced industrial powder coating facility in northern Alberta, IPAC is also the only internal fusion bond epoxy facility in the region” says Derrick Mysko, President of IPAC Services.

“Our clients will realize both immediate and long-term benefits using this technology” explains Chris Rimmer, Director of Industrial Coatings. “Short turnaround times will provide cost and schedule efficiencies, while a tough and durable finish will deliver lasting quality.”

Each oven’s dimensions are 9’ wide x 24’ long x 14’ high, while the powder coating spray booth is 14’ wide x 28’ long x 14’ high. These facilities can accommodate oversized pieces and large batch painting for a variety of applications.

Powder coating is becoming the coating of choice for internal pipe.  It is suitable for all pipe sizes 2” and up and provides a consistent thickness and superior quality.  For oil and gas applications, powder coating can be used in place of all liquid coatings and provides a slightly thicker coating for greater performance where abrasion is an issue. Powder coating advances are specifically advantageous for the internally coating of spools that carry corrosive liquids and petro-chemicals or that come in contact with salt water solutions.  When in use for water treatment piping and for potable water, powder coating meets all NSF requirements.

Powder coating is well suited for external pipe specifically when coating pipeline components, such as pipeline bends, as they are typically coated with 100% solids epoxy coatings whereas the mainline is coated with fusion bond epoxy.  Therefore, when powder coated, pipeline bends, below grade pipe, risers and line pipe for testing companies can meet the same specifications as mainline pipe.

Finally, powder coating is excellent for manufactured items that are mass produced such as pipe racks, pipe shoes, structural steel supports, and handrails.  These items can be completed in large batches, greatly reducing handling time and costs.

Powder coating is a finishing process that yields a thick, hard finish that is tougher than conventional paints.  Benefits of powder coating include a durable, long lasting, even finish, quick turnaround, and reduced environmental impacts. 

Product offerings include:

·         Axalta – Nap Guard series – for internal and external FBE coatings

·         3M Skotchkote FBE- for internal and external FBE coatings

·         Many off the shelf colours

·         Custom colours and blends

For 30 years, IPAC Services Corporation has been providing general oilfield contracting, fabrication, construction, maintenance, scaffolding, insulation and painting services to the Peace Region.

Our regional offices in Grande Prairie, AB and Fort St. John, BC provide a full line of services to our clients.  The Project Management Office in Calgary, AB houses estimation, business development and major projects.  Whether it is a single spool that requires fabrication and painting, or the construction of an entire greenfield gas plant from civil work, module manufacturing, piping and structural fabrication, field installation, commissioning and everything in between, IPAC has you covered.
