Vulcan Painters, Inc.


Vulcan Painters, Inc. is an industrial painting contracting firm specializing in challenging painting projects, blasting and painting structural steel, and blasting and coating pipe. Our field work includes painting and maintenance in a number of industries and takes us to power generation plants, paper mills, chemical plants, and mines (we are MSHA certified). We also paint college buildings, hospitals, churches and historic landmarks. In our shops we paint and coat pipe and fabricated or manufactured parts.

For more than half a century Vulcan has provided customers in the Southeast and beyond with solutions to their industrial coating problems. Safety, skill, technology and accountability are the strengths we bring to each job, large or small. We believe that a well-trained worker is a safer worker, and Vulcan prides itself on its commitment to training. We use both extensive in‑house training, and skill and career development courses from leading trade organizations, such as SSPC, the Finishing Trades Institute (FTI), and the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE).

Headquartered in Bessemer, Alabama, we consistently rank in the top 20 painting contractors in the nation, according to Engineering News Record. And we are one of a small number of contractors to earn both ISO 9001 certification and SSPC QS1 certification.

In October 2009 Vulcan Painters became the first coatings contracting company to meet the certification requirements of the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) QP 9 program and its QS 1 certification program. In addition, Vulcan is the first contracting company to achieve six SSPC Quality Program certifications including QP 1, QP 2, QP 3, QP 8, QP 9, and QS 1. Vulcan Pipe and Steel Coatings, Inc. has also achieved SSPC QP 3 certification.

The SSPC certifications are part of its Painting Contractor Certification Program (PCCP), which establishes consensus standards, developed by a diverse committee of industry professionals. PCCP is a nationally recognized independent contractor evaluation program and pre-qualification tool. Read more about these certifications at the Society for Protective Coatings.

Our commitment to training and our long history in the industry gives us the experience to accomplish the job for the customer, safely, on time and on budget. Our pre-job meeting organizes manpower and equipment and sets the schedule. We consistently use the best of technology to accomplish our task, whether it is automated systems for the inner diameter of ductile iron pipe for sewer, or a closed containment system controlling overspray on a busy street. When the technology did not exist, we developed it!

And we have a commitment to serve our customers by continuously improving customer satisfaction. Part of our ISO certification, continuous improvement means that customer satisfaction is measured, concerns are addressed, causes identified and mistakes corrected.
