About Corrosion One, Inc.

Corrosion One, Inc. has well over 100 years of collective experience in the protective coatings and corrosion industry, involving asset protection, planning and prevention.  We provide qualified and well-equipped NACE certified inspectors, state of the art technology, testing equipment, instrumentation, and documentation.

In addition to inspection services, we offer spec writing, spec review and interpretation.  We evaluate, develop, and implement coating systems for capital projects and pride ourselves in accurate data collection, professional client presentation, precise documentation, and report generation.

Corrosion One, Inc. is globally resourced out of the United Kingdom, and offers advanced planning, screening and training of inspectors customized to support our customers’ specific needs.  Our services include a ‘Can Hire’ agreement; meaning that after an agreed period of time, our inspector can work directly for an organization for a nominal fee.  In addition, and as a part of the ‘Can Hire’ program, we offer an internal training program, where we will hire your candidates, pay for their NACE training while they are gaining inspection services experience.

All of these services are a reflection of our long-term goal of ensuring our clients can protect and maintain their equipment, as they monitor corrosion with the best resources and technology available.  Clients can maximize resources and revenue, as well as minimize risks and costs.

NACE International, which was established in 1943 is a professional organization for the corrosion control industry with headquarters in Houston, TX. NACE’s main focus of activities includes cathodic protection, coatingsfor industry, inspection, corrosion testing, and material selection for specific chemical resistance.
