Pro-Kleen (PK) was started by Kevin Turpin in 1997. The company began by applying high-end automotive and industrial machinery coatings but soon realized that it didn’t want to be just a painting company. So with eagerness to learn new techniques that improve efficiency and quality, willingness to innovate and partner with coating and equipment manufacturers and continuous education, PK went from a small-town company to industry-leading company within a short period of time.
After four years of painting heavy machinery and refinery equipment off-site with specialty applications, PK’s reputation was growing. PK Industrial which was originally known as Pro-Kleen Inc. becomes incorporated. PK becomes the first company to spray Chartek 1709 in an onshore facility in North America.
Fireproofing grew rapidly on new construction projects –PK Industrial (PKI) became known as the world leader for intumescent fireproofing application in the oil & gas industry. PKI used their knowledge and applied it to other high-end coatings, tank liners, vessels, secondary containers, etc. In no time, PKI tripled the size of the Kansas facility and opened one of the largest shops in Houston, TX, thereby becoming the lead applicator for every sizable steel fabricator in North America.
With PK Industrial applying very complicated coating systems in dangerous and complex environments, they experienced the lack of training with the safety services provided. PK saw a need to innovate the process and improve the quality of safety reps and started supplying our own safety professionals. PK Safety was founded to provide safety professionals that meet the high standard and quality PK was known for.
Throughout the growth of PK, we saw an opportunity to innovate and create consistency using mobile technology to sustain our growth. PK realized the value and power of mobility –access to information and data in real-time, so we hired a 3rd party company to build applications for internal use. However, they didn’t understand the industry or have a passion for success, so PK decided to hire in-house development in order to apply our expertise. This was the beginning of PK Technology.
PK made the decision to invest in development to create a mobile technology that worked with a tablet. With a strong pool of developers trained locally in writing applications specifically for Apple at the time, PK developed its first product (intelliSPEC™) with internal solutions inFIRE & inSAFETY for use by PK Industrial and PK Safety.
Product development allowed PK Companies to grow 100% each year and provide consistency. Services expanded into 22 states and the offshore market. During this period, customers took notice of the technology PK employees were using and started to inquire about external use. The development team continued to grow and PK was quickly becoming a technology company.
PK decided to start an operations department within PK Technology to provide certified inspectors that were properly trained on the use of intelliSPEC™. After development, PK went to the market to merge inspection processes with mobile data collection –using our experience of running successful service companies to efficiently run an inspection company that can push inspection data into legacy systems.
PK Technology now employs 32 in-house developers and is working on the creation of a new product designed for workforce optimization (weavix™). weavix is an integrated data sharing platform built specifically for the oil and gas industry designed to eliminate workforce inefficiencies through digitization and real-time communication between all owner and contractor personnel.
