The History Of Vulcain
Founded in 1968 by
Clément Gervais, Vulcain has always been dedicated towards the
environment and the safety of people. Clément recruited a team of
qualified individuals sharing the same passion. Quickly the company
became known for its capacity to identify and solve environmental
concerns and for reliable and high quality products.
Currently, Vulcain is a fast growing company that has
worldwide relationships with suppliers, distributors and end users.
Vulcain specializes in manufacturing toxic and explosive gas detectors,
covering the needs of HVAC, municipal and industrial applications.
Vulcain continuously renews and modifies its product
line to meet the requirements of an expanding environmental market in
constant evolution. Its latest generation of toxic and explosive gas
detectors monitor air quality with exceeding accuracy and integrate the
newest, most reliable and most durable technologies. In order to achieve
these advancements, important investments were committed to its
research and development department. This led to revolutionary
technological breakthroughs, such as an infrared detection technology
exclusive to Vulcain. It also led to the advancement of traditional
catalytic combustion, electrochemical, diffusion fuel cell and
semi-conductor technologies. These innovations have culminated in an
award-winning refrigerant gas monitor that utilises a double sensor,
infrared technology that redefines the industry’s standards.
Since its strategic alliance with BW Technologies in
2002, Vulcain has benefited by gaining further access to a even wider
range of gas detection markets. Additionally, it opened the opportunity
for Vulcain to relocate its head office and manufacturing division into a
custom-built facility with modernized production equipment in Brossard,
(Qc.) Canada, boosting efficiency and production performance.
Quality-assurance, sales and management were also improved with
automated applications and the implementation of computer-assisted,
manufacturing management software (ERP/MRP). The facility’s
infrastructure layout has taken into account Vulcain’s present magnitude
and growth objectives for the years to come.
Staying true to Clément’s original vision of
protecting both the environment and the people that live within it,
these operational advancements continue to bolster Vulcain’s abilities
to redefine the HVAC, industrial and commercial gas detection markets
and develop new life-saving technologies.
This capitalization confirms Vulcain’s leadership by
offering gas detection technologies at the forefront of the industry,
which engineering develops in conjunction with every other department in
the company. These proceedings allow Vulcain to keep an edge over the
competition by bringing to market, efficient and reliable products, in a
streamlined time frame. In addition, the low cost of post-installation
ownership distinguishes Vulcain’s products and ensures the satisfaction
of its end-users.
Vulcain’s reputation of excellence has been confirmed
over the years by being granted numerous awards and distinctions. In the
context of increased environmental concerns worldwide, Vulcain’s
perspectives on growth are exceptional and make the company a guaranteed
value in its field for years to come. Today, BW and Vulcain are part of
the First Technology group of safety companies.
