The Company

In 1995 we opened our first office in Edmonton, Alberta. Since that time our business has expanded to not only encompass the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical market (OGP) but also the Aerospace and Defense sectors. In 2000, we established a head office in Toronto, Ontario where the company could better serve the needs of its growing customer base. Today, we continue to provide unparalleled solutions to the growing need for unique and environmentally friendly coating technologies.

With the development and application of its exclusive and environmentally friendly EPVD® technology, we continue to service the Global defense industry as well as foreign Governments in the areas of weapons systems improvement. We remain the preferred supplier for any organization seeking advanced coating and engineering expertise.

Government agencies, multinational corporations and private interest groups have relied on Paradigm Shift for professional, industry leading and custom-built coating solutions. Working from its state-of-the-art facility in Toronto, we employ a growing team of experienced professionals.
