Since our founding in 1961, Exchanger Industries has built a reputation as a leading Alberta-based and globally-recognized designer and manufacturer of shell & tube and air-cooled heat exchangers within the natural gas, oil and petrochemical industries.
We are known by our clients for superior execution, unwavering product quality and a relentless focus on improving project profitability. Today, we are committed to building on our 60-year track record of delivering custom heat transfer solutions that increase efficiency and reduce costs.
Our international customer base ranges from Fortune 500 oil & gas companies to cutting-edge renewable energy start-ups, and they all rely on our unmatched industry experience to deliver cost-effective, innovative solutions for even the most difficult heat transfer problems.
Since 1961, Exchanger Industries has forged strong, long-lasting relationships by effectively meeting our customers’ needs for complete solutions that maximize full project life-cycle profitability. We do this by leveraging best-in-class engineering, design, supply chain and project management expertise to ensure our high standards are maintained from planning through delivery.
Though Exchanger Industries has called Alberta, Canada home since the beginning, we have integrated a global supply chain of rigorously-qualified heat exchanger manufacturing facilities so that our customers receive the highest quality products at competitive prices.
Over six decades, we’ve gathered welding expertise and an extensive exotic alloy weld procedure library that allows us to tackle jobs that many other suppliers and manufacturers of heat transfer systems simply cannot.
And we never rest on our track record of success, working constantly to qualify and implement the newest, leading-edge Enterprise systems to maximize value for our customers. Customized 3-D CAD, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Material Resource Planning (MRP), and proprietary activity cost-based estimate programs build the foundation for efficient scalability that allow us to further improve cost competitiveness while maintaining the integrity and quality that our customers demand.
To build an Alberta-based, globally recognized leader in the provision of innovative, quality, custom heat transfer equipment, services and solutions that allow our customers to exceed their objectives for both project life cycle and product life cycle profitability.
Our roots are grounded in the oil fields of Alberta but our customer base, our track record of projects and our supplier network spans the globe. We continue to drive international growth into our key strategic market segments in Canada, the US and the Middle East.
From our headquarters in Calgary, we serve a variety of customer segments defined by industry vertical and geographic location for both new build (greenfield) and replacement or maintenance (brownfield) projects. Within these core segments, we have delivered products across Alberta and worldwide to the most recognized and prestigious Fortune 1000 energy and chemical companies for applications including:
Natural Gas Midstream
For primarily greenfield projects for compression in pipelines, as well as gas processing and fractionation. Exchanger holds a market-leading position in this segment in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) in Alberta and British Columbia, but also sells products to projects across North America.
This includes primarily greenfield applications for oil & gas refineries as well as plants that convert Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) to various end products such as polypropylene and methanol. Exchanger holds a market-leading position for this rapidly growing vertical in Alberta, but also supplies to projects in the US Gulf Coast (USGC) as well as the Middle East and Asia.
Upstream Alberta Oil
Exchanger supplies product for both greenfield and brownfield applications. We have the largest, installed base of heat exchangers in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and expect further growth in brownfield business.
In partnership with a global chemical company, Exchanger has developed, piloted and commercialized a proprietary coating for heat exchanger tubes. This premium product stops clogging or “fouling” in the units which typically requires significant cleaning costs and downtime. This solution will have applications across all of our industry verticals and geographies.
Exchangers Industries is focused on delivering best-in-class equipment and services at competitive pricing. Our strategic approach dictates how we invest our time and resources to best achieve this vision, and defines the following focal points to maximize value for our customers:
We offer a range of core heat transfer products and after-sales services, each supported by decades of experience. This allows us to act as a ‘One-Stop-Shop’ for our customers, minimizing procurement costs and streamlining project execution.
We offer innovative designs that minimize the total cost of ownership by driving down both up-front capital costs as well as operating costs including maintenance, energy use and downtime.
Time is money. We deliver on-time, every time and use best-in-class project management to eliminate construction delays and cost overruns.
Global Supply Chain Flexibility
We’ve developed a rigorously-qualified offshore supply chain network that offers the most stringent international levels of product quality to provide customers with multiple options for delivery and pricing.
Leading-Edge Technology and Enterprise Systems
We strive for continuous improvement, innovating to bring our customers game-changing solutions like our proprietary antifouling coating while investing in state-of-the-art Enterprise systems to drive scalability and cost-competitiveness
