SurfacePrep People Rock!

Meet Alex Kalisky, General Manager/Directeur Général of Montreal Carbide & Abratech Divisions in SurfacePrep Canada

Alex began working for Montreal Carbide and Abratech in the 90’s for a summer job while in engineering school. Over the past 25 years, with great help from his mentor and father, Peter, Alex has done everything from sweeping the floors and running equipment to eventually taking over as the owner and operator of the business.

Alex has always loved helping clients by finding innovative solutions to their problems. “Over the years, we had the chance to work with great companies, both clients and suppliers, and their fantastic people. We are blessed that they had great confidence in us and our company to develop new materials and processes that are today at the forefront of technology.”

Montreal Carbide and Abratech are at the forefront of a lot of technology in our industries. They manufacture and supply thermal spray powders that are being used in some of the most high-tech military aircraft engines in the world.

Montreal Carbide and Abratech joined SurfacePrep almost a year ago, during this time Alex has most appreciated the vast amount of talented, energetic, and genuinely good people in the company. Alex said that it is, “always easy to find someone willing to help when we ask a question. It is surely the most complete and technical company in the field in North America, if not the world.”

Alex said that being hyperactive has made him unable to sit down and do nothing, so when he isn’t at the office working, you can find him very busy and always moving. He loves to golf, travel (and golf while travelling), work out, cook, and especially loves to spend time with his wife.
