Corrosion Service was founded in 1950 by Thomas R.B. Watson as the first Canadian firm to specialize in cathodic protection. Our founding philosophy was based on the principles of providing great customer service and developing a deep understanding of customer needs, these same core principles still guide our company today.
Throughout our history we have always been privately owned by successive groups of employees that have risen through the organization. This ownership structure gives us a unique perspective on business and ensures that our stakeholders (customers, employees and partners), rather than shareholders, always come first. This is vital for a company such as ours, given that we exist primarily to protect the environment, our fellow citizens and the prosperity of the communities in which we live.
