Located in Calgary with a working space in excess of 200,000 square feet, Moore's earned the reputation as one of the world’s best industrial coating specialists.

The original Moore’s was founded in 1946 and the respected family business grew into a world class industrial machine shop. Hard chrome plating was added to the range of services provided and the company soon crafted itself a name as a world leader in this area. Building on this expertise, the company added additional coating options for its customers and got out of the engine machining business to specialize in industrial coatings. The company is located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with working space in excess of 200,000 square feet and has earned the reputation as one of the world’s best industrial coating specialists in:
