Ross Rex Industrial Painters Ltd, like most good things, began small. Creating the company in 1947, Ross Senior travelled up and down the coast of British Columbia acquiring clients. He earned an impressive portfolio of petrochemical businesses that recognized his expertise. Settling in Burnaby, Ross Sr. wowed the likes of Chevron Canada, Shell Oil, and other refineries in the lower mainland with his detailed and professional work.
Ross Rex Industrial Painters developed alongside the province of British Columbia. As pulp mills came into the spotlight, Ross Sr made sure his company was ready and certified to help fulfill those needs. As storage facilities grew, so did Ross Rex Painters’ development in corrosion services. The company grew and evolved from raw talent and determination that developed a province-wide recognition of his and his crew’s expertise.
Over the years, Ross became an expert in the business, eventually running jobs of his own for the company in British Columbia & Western Canada.
In 1989, Ross Junior took over the company. He led Ross Rex Industrial Painters into the new century with great success. State-of-the-art equipment allowed the company to expand into other areas. Loyalty with his long-time employees (about eight in the winter and up to forty when weather permits) remains strong: they are all experts in their craft who understand the importance of their work.
At the close of 2017, Ross Rex Industrial Painters took on new ownership and maintains Ross Rex, Jr as an executive director for future growth of the company. Today, we continue the Ross Rex legacy as we continue to work with longstanding partners and develop new client relationships all across British Columbia.
