In 1973, Qualimet was founded as a welder testing facility in response to new Alberta legislation that required all welders of pressure equipment to be tested. From that client-centric beginning, Qualimet has grown into one of Western Canada’s leading welding engineering companies.

From the start, our goal has been to anticipate and meet the needs of a growing client base. Qualimet currently provides a full range of materials engineering services to industries throughout Western Canada and worldwide. Our commitment to providing top-quality service, year after year, is the reason that many clients have been with us since the 1970s. As we grow, we are serving clients from across Canada, the United States, and overseas in China.

Over the years, Qualimet has accumulated a wealth of experience through our dedicated employees. Employee qualifications include:

  • Professional Engineers
  • Engineers in Training (E.I.T.s)
  • Registered Engineering Technologists
  • Certified Engineering Technologists
  • CWB Level II & III Certified Inspectors
  • CGSB Certified Technicians
  • ABSA Weld Examiners
  • Alberta Certified Machinists
  • Alberta Apprentice Machinists


Qualimet’s Professional Engineers are registered in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario.

In 2011, Qualimet moved into a new 15,000 sq. ft. facility that includes a metallurgical lab, sample preparation and testing areas, and a 750 sq. ft. welder testing centre equipped with 10 all-new, bright and well-lit welder testing stations.

Our clients are our top priority. As a team, we are dedicated to providing the right engineering & technical advice at the right time. That means staying in touch, listening, and responding. We are pleased to report that  client retention levels are high, and annual sales have tripled over the last ten years.

To our employees, “Qualimet” is more than just a company name. It’s a daily reminder of our commitment to  provide clients with consistently outstanding metallurgical engineering and testing services that help our clients succeed and help keep the public safe.
