Park Derochie: 60 years of growth, leadership and diversity

Park Derochie continues to lead the way as one of the top industrial coating contractors in North America, specializing in all types of industrial coatings, fireproofing, fire stopping, blast cleaning and scaffolding as well as mechanical and spray-foam insulation.

The company has experienced continued growth and diversification, expanding nationally with branches located in Surrey, B.C.; Edmonton and Fort McMurray, Alta.; Saskatoon and Regina, Sask., and in Manitoba.

At Park Derochie, we are proud of our unique corporate culture. Park Derochie was built on the principles of strong work ethic, commitment to customer satisfaction, developing a skilled and dedicated workforce, and a belief that loyalty begets loyalty. This culture, some of which grew naturally from small-company beginnings, sets us apart from the competition and has helped us become one of Western Canada’s most admired companies.

Maintaining the highest standards of quality and safety

Providing uncompromising safety, and quality workmanship to our clients is a strong component within our core principles of business ethics. When it comes to safety, we are proud to be leaders in the industry and our safety record confirms this.

Attracting quality and diversity

Attracting quality, long-term individuals is key to the success of our company and we recognize that job satisfaction is vital to employee retention. As a company, we promote, encourage and financially support continuous learning for all employees. We are proud to be an equal-opportunity employer with a long-serving workforce that includes diverse cultural backgrounds. We are dedicated to fostering an inclusive and supportive work environment. We respect and value the diverse backgrounds and traditions of all employees and the rich diversity of the communities in which we operate.

 

Community involvement

We have always held the strong belief that investing in our community and our youth is as important as investing in the people within the company. Park Derochie regularly contributes to numerous sectors including school programs, youth sports, health foundations, charities and community programs. We firmly believe that supporting health, wellness and education builds stronger, healthier individuals who, in turn, pay it forward, creating stronger communities. We consider these donations and sponsorships, not an obligation, but a privilege.

 

Aboriginal engagement

We place a significant focus on engagement with Aboriginal Peoples, including local partnerships with First Nations, as well as working with various community educational groups and tribal councils throughout Saskatchewan.

Since Park Derochie Coatings (Saskatchewan) Inc. was established in 2010, we have built a workforce of more than 160 employees. Not only has engagement with Indigenous people created amicable working relationships, it has also provided Park Derochie with a workforce of young, enthusiastic workers that make up an average of 30 per cent of our employees. Park Derochie has employed cost control analysts, site superintendents, foremen and general workers from various Aboriginal communities in Saskatchewan. The company is also proud to note that 53 per cent of Park Derochie Saskatchewan’s operation is made up of Indigenous people, visible minorities and women.

History of excellence bodes well for the future

PD Group of Companies Inc. was named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2015 for excellence in business performance and we are proud to have requalified and retained that status in 2017.

The Park Derochie difference is apparent — striving to provide well-managed, turn-key, hassle-free services to clients, and dedication to the enrichment of the communities in which we operate. Park Derochie has proven to be an unparalleled subcontractor when it comes to corporate social responsibility, innovation and expertise.

Every employee works every day to live up to our mission statement, which is to “provide ‘best in class’ services.”
