Together in 2018, Gerd Zisterer, Glen Friesen and Jordan Jacobsen started Supernova Welding and Fabrication, which has since grown exponentially into a successful business in Calgary, AB. Supernova Welding and Fabrication carries a Certification of Authorization Permit from the Alberta Boiler Safety Association as well as an AP Permit from the B.C. Technical Safety which certifies us to fabricate, modify and repair pressure piping according to ASME B31.3 code.
