About Us

Working together for over 60 years

Desco is an Edmonton based privately held corporation that was founded in 1956 by brothers Nestor and Orest Samycia. Expanding from our humble roots of Desco Vitro-Glaze Wall Coatings, Desco now offers a wide range of solutions for our clients to meet a variety of needs. Based on our history of professional problem solving for a variety of clients, Desco stands as a leader in quality craftsmanship and client satisfaction.

Our long serving employees continually receive new training in the most up to date procedures, materials, equipment, and safety in the ever changing construction industry. This enables everyone from the ground up to have an understanding of what solution is going to work best for our clients and how to institute it properly.

Throughout these decades of tremendous growth, two things have remained the same: superior systems technology and state-of-the-art installation methods. All this means satisfaction guaranteed for you, our customer.

Employee and Customer Safety

We take the safety of our employees and others seriously. We pride ourselves in our on-the-job safety record and adherence to numerous client safety requirements. This focus on safe work practices is critical not just for Desco, but for you and your staff.

Environmentally Friendly

Our industry has come a long way in moving towards more environmentally friendly products and practices. Desco has moved towards products that have low to no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and practices that are LEED certified. We are constantly refining our processes to ensure that we can reduce, reuse, and recycle more to ensure the sustainability.
