Press Release: March 2011

Filotech Electrodes Inc. - the only all-Canadian - independent manufacturer of chrome carbide overlay wires – is proud to announce its 25th year in business.

Filotech manufactures everything from "scratch" and formulates on its own premises. We are problem solvers and we have been very successful at manufacturing custom wires and formulations on behalf of our customers.

Filotech’s involvement in the Oilsands dates back to the mid nineties as a supplier of flux-cored maintenance and repair welding wires under private label. Over the past 5 years however, the Filotech brand label has taken concrete steps to participate in the development of new products required in the high wear applications that define the Oilsands. Filotech has participated and displayed at 4 National Buyers & Sellers Forums as well as displayed at the last 4 Oilsands Trade Shows in both Edmonton & more recently in Fort McMurray.

Filotech presently supplies several companies in the Alberta market which service the Oilsands. We have been asked to present our company as a viable, alternate supplier of chrome-carbide overlay wires for straight pipe as well as various elbow configurations.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at your earliest convenience. We visit your area every 6-8 weeks and look forward to meeting with you in the not too distant future.

Press Release: 2005

The staff and management of Filotech Electrodes Inc. from Montreal, Canada are proud to announce the expansion of their manufacturing facilities as well as the launching of a new product line - pre-welded wear plate.

The larger building space will allow floor space required for additional flux-cored drawing mills as well as automatic spooling equipment for the well reputed rebuilding and hardfacing gasless wires.

The process of chrome carbide overlay is done automatically using a new alloy called the MULTI-FUSION 2000. This product not only outlasts other standard chrome carbide overlays - it rivals welded tungsten carbide in wear restistance with the added benefit of withstanding impact.

Filotech Electrodes Inc., established in 1986, is an ISO-9002-94 certified manufacturer specialized in servicing users of high alloy welding products. All wires are formulated and manufactured on in-house designed equipment.
