After many years working in the supplier and applicator side of the thermal spray industry, Lorne Chrystal began working on the vision of Indurate Alloys in early 2011. He saw a gap in the marketplace for expert knowledge and higher-quality, cost-effective products for thermal spray applicator clients throughout Canada. His vision was to create a company that focused on innovation at the highest levels of customer service.
In late 2011, Lorne founded Indurate Alloys to serve thermal applicators in the oil and gas, petrochemical and mining sectors. Over the past 10 years, Lorne has grown the company into one of Canada's most respected and reputable thermal spray suppliers.
In the past ten years, Indurate Alloys has outgrown its Thermal Spray facilities twice, diversified its powder lines, added new products, and expanded its team. Indurate's focus on the client is the driving force behind many innovative milestones the team has achieved together, including:
- Industry-leading alliances with premium suppliers such as Praxair Surface Technologies.
- Key relationships and exclusive partnerships with overseas suppliers and manufacturers.
- New product additions such as chemicals for hard chrome plating as well as diamond grinding products.
- In 2014, Indurate Alloys proudly launched its exclusive line of premium and customizable PTA powders.
