Anotec was founded in 1987 by four industry pioneers determined to provide a superior high silicon iron anode to the market.
These four men crafted a distinct chill cast process using metal molds rather than sand, producing the world’s best high silicon cast iron solid stick anodes.
Within two years, Anotec began producing tubular anodes with unique features such as a tapered cable connection seat and epoxy sealant retention grooves — qualities that are not available in conventional centrifugally-cast anodes.
In 2004, the development of the Z-Series began — a new line of tubular high silicon iron anodes with features that significantly improved performance and economics, while maintaining the finest quality for which Anotec is proudly known.
Today, Anotec is family-owned and operated, maintaining the same superior quality and exemplary service established at its founding. Now offering a variety of anodes in our product line, as well as an anode sled and a UL listed grounding rod, we partner with premium distributors and agents worldwide, attesting to the wide acceptance and reliability of Anotec anodes.
Anotec is located in Langley, British Columbia, in a facility intentionally built for optimum productivity and quality. Conveniently located near major highways, rail terminals, and the Port of Vancouver, we are ideally situated for global container trade.
Santokh Sahota, Jim Holloway, Alex Stables, and Eckhardt Schmidt founded Anotec after developing the chill cast process and creating solid stick anodes — our very first product.
Tubular anodes were added to Antoec’s product line.
Anotec adds internal chemistry testing (via mass spectrometry) to its quality assurance.
Anode sleds were added to Anotec’s product line. A temporary foundry was established in Sumas, WA (USA).
Anotec relocated to our current facility in Langley, British Columbia (Canada).
Anotec achieves ISO 9001 certification.
Z-Series tubular anodes were added to Anotec’s product line.
NSF 61 certification awarded for Anotec’s entire product line. UL-listed grounding rods were added to Anotec’s product line.
Although no longer with us, we honour the following individuals for their significant contributions to Anotec. We would not be the company we are today without them.
