In 1969 David Johnson contracted FCI (Ferro Cement Industries) to build him a 45’ ferrocement hulled sailboat. The contract stipulated that David be hired on to help with the build. During the build he progressed to become the Foreman of the job and eventually a part owner of the company. In May 1969 a polyurethane foam machine was purchased and polyurethane foam insulation was used to seal the hull and prevent condensation. David found that although ferrocement boats were not the wave of the future – polyurethane foam insulation was.
Eventually the name was changed to FCI Spray Foam to better reflect their new business focus and a sister company Tasman Industries was started for advancements into other markets. David piloted FCI and Tasman Industries into the largest polyurethane foam insulation company in BC. David retired in 1999 and sold FCI and Tasman. After several more sales to large US firms, an employee buyback was negotiated and FCI and Tasman were once again owned by the people that do the work.
To this day we continue to provide sprayed polyurethane foam insulation and coatings to many of the same industries and people that David serviced since the 60’s. We have also found new uses for polyurethane foam and coatings to evolve Tasman into the twenty first century.
