We're known as Quick Strip. But really, our name is quite long - it reflects our full services. It's Quick Strip Dustless Blasting Services and Industrial Coating Applicators. Quick Strip was founded by Directors Kim McFarlane and John Gallace. Between them, Kim and John bring more than 55 years of high-level, practical industry experience. They've led the successful completion of diverse Quick Strip projects with values of up to $2.6M in 13 weeks, and have the capabilities to complete even larger projects. When you add the experience of our large staff team, there's hundreds of years of experience we bring to our clients' projects.
