Global Services' History
Cortec® began in October 1977 as a small startup selling VpCI® emitters out of the home of founder and CEO, Boris Miksic. Since then, Cortec® has grown into the global leader in VpCI® Technology, making an impact on corrosion control methodology in more than 100 countries.
Working hard to provide a total corrosion solution, and not just a product, Cortec® became a provider of Integrated Solutions to meet specific customer needs. This hands-on, integrated approach to corrosion control led to the development of Cortec’s onsite Corrosion Engineering and Field Services.
In 2013, Cortec® officially launched its Global Services division, becoming the only company to provide a full range of corrosion control products, training, and monitoring solutions that have been adopted by some of the largest oil and gas companies in the world. Cortec® Global Services continues to expand and enhance its services in order to provide unparalleled preservation support and turnkey services across the globe.
