Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Advanced Stainless?
Advanced Stainless started off primarily serving the Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical sectors by offering premium stainless process equipment right from design to on site installations. As our services became more comprehensive our products naturally crossed over to supplying the ever changing needs of bio-diesel, petrochemical and related industries.

How long has Advanced Stainless been in business?
In the Summer of1996 Advanced Stainless completed it’s first project, a small piping project for a poultry processor. Working out of a van with one welding machine Advanced gained the trust of 3 customers that summer. By the end of the year we employed 3 welders and had to rent a small unit in Tillsonburg, to house the necessary equipment to offer sheet metal fabrication services.

How can I contact an Advanced Stainless representative?
Whatever your component needs, Advanced Stainless is prepared to deliver quality results. Visit our contact page to connect with a representative or ask us any questions.

Are your welders certified?
All our welders are certified to either CWB for structural welding, or TSSA pressure piping or both. A full list of our certifications and qualifications can be found on our Expertise page.

Do you work with mild steel?
No. The most common methods that stainless gets contaminated by carbon steel is through particle (shavings, grinding dust) transfer by using grinding and polishing wheels and products that came directly or indirectly in contact with mild steel.  Airborne dust that settles on stainless can also cause contamination.

We decided the best way to manage and reduce the risk of cross contamination between metals is to just eliminate mild steel fabrication all together.

This gives our food, beverage and pharmaceutical clients the confidence that we are providing the best product possible free of foreign metal contamination.

How far to you travel for installations?
While the majority of our clientele is based in Southwestern Ontario, we regularly complete installations outside this region.  We have installed piping and equipment for the pharmaceutical, beverage and food industry from Halifax to British Columbia.

Do you offer professional engineering services?
Yes, through our partners we can and have provided engineering and  technical design support for machine building, food process systems, pressure vessel design, and project management.

We don’t retain in-house engineers as that would dramatically increase our working overhead.

Advanced Stainless has built a successful business and strong reputation in a niche where the majority of our clients are only looking for a company that can offer skilled and competent tradesmen. We are frequently asked to work closely with their engineering department to assist them in design of systems.

One of our primary goals is to keep our overhead down while focusing on what we do well. By not having an engineering department, our clients don’t pay for the redundant cost of a service they don’t need, but by partnering with professionals in the field we can offer engineering services when the project requires it.

CWB Certified, TSSA Certified
