Company

To be the most reliable and efficient provider of technical industrial services.

We at KAEFER be­lieve we have an im­port­ant part to play in build­ing a sus­tain­able, en­ergy-ef­fi­cient fu­ture. And we are in the per­fect po­s­i­tion to do so: for more than 100 years, we have worked in in­dus­trial fa­cil­it­ies, res­id­en­tial and com­mer­cial prop­er­ties, on oil rigs or ships. In everything we do, we as­pire to be RED – re­cog­nised, ef­fi­cient and dif­fer­ent.

That is why our mis­sion also needs to re­flect the scale of our am­bi­tion – to take a global lead as the most re­li­able and ef­fi­cient pro­vider of tech­nical in­dus­trial ser­vices

Our Values

At KAEFER, we build on strong val­ues and em­brace the di­versity of those we work with. This is a true re­flec­tion of the KAEFER way of think­ing and act­ing dif­fer­ently.

Trust is the found­a­tion of all our busi­ness activ­it­ies. Re­spect for the in­di­vidual, our pro­fes­sion­al­ism as well as col­legi­al­ity help us make the right de­cisions in com­plex situ­ations.

We take pride in our re­li­ab­il­ity, and a fo­cus on res­ults which al­lows us to ex­ceed the ex­pect­a­tions of our cli­ents. At the same time, we re­main mod­est, never for­get­ting that there is al­ways room for im­prove­ment.

KAEFER Values

Doing things the KAEFER way. Since 1918.

Carl Kaefer was a clever man. In 1918 he used peat to insulate the walls of cold storage spaces. His idea worked so well that it led to the foundation of the KAEFER Group, which has since developed into a world-wide market leader for the most reliable and efficient provider of technical services. With over 28,000 employees and operations in over 40 countries, we are a true global player - there for you all over the world.

KAEFER History Photo

KAEFER in Canada

The history of KAEFER in Canada is rich, with the roots of our Canadian business going back nearly 70 years and spanning across the country. Part of the origins of KAEFER in Canada were established in Atlantic Canada (Parker Brothers) in 1952. Acquired by the KAEFER Group in 2006, PARKER KAEFER Inc. was formed, combining the local and international expertise of two highly skilled business units and expanding the scope of services provided in Atlantic Canada. In 2015, PARKER KAEFER Inc. was amalgamated with PARKER KAEFER Western Ltd. from Alberta and changed its name to KAEFER Industrial Services Ltd. 

The roots of our business in Western Canada go back to 1976 with the establishment of Albrico, an industrial and mechanical insulation business in Grand Prairie, Alberta. Within 6 years and through continued growth and expansion to several locations in Alberta, British Columbia, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories, Albrico Services Ltd. (1982) was established. The company continued to grow in size and skill and was successfully completing industrial and commercial insulation jobs when it was acquired by the KAEFER Group in 2008.
