From the early 80s, our CEO and Founder, Randy LeBoeuf was a dedicated employee as a Blaster / Painter. In 1986 he and his wife purchased Tesco, Inc. from his in laws not only to keep providing the highest quality Blasting and Painting services, but in bringing the newest technologies in Surface Prep & Coatings to the industry. As an owner, he would build a reputation of providing not only the highest quality service, but the attitude to make it happen. In 2007 he sold Tesco to Brand Energy Service. From there he stayed on board and continued to build the business. In 2008 he resigned from Brand for a short time, and in 2009 teamed up with a friend to start a new company providing services in Blasting, Painting, Pipeline Maintenance, Fabrication, New Construction, and Repair of Oilfield Equipment. There, he was known for his Innovative methods of getting things done!
In early 2012 he teamed up with Rocky Smith to start off a new venture and focus on the latest Surface Prep technology – Ultra High-Pressure Water Blasting. Innovative Surface Prep Rentals, LLC was created with the goal of being recognized as the leader in UHP Water Blasting Surface Preparation. After extensive testing, and countless hours of research and development, a fleet of UHP Blasting units like no other were offered to the industry. With a combination of unparalleled equipment and a team of Innovative employees, ISP has performed services around the United States and the Caribbean for surface prep on everything from Cruise Ships, Offshore Drill Ships, Offshore Platforms, Refineries & Marine.
In 2015 with the Oil and Gas industry slowing down, ISP needed to take a new step and widen our market to be able to sustain the downturn. Randy followed his instinct and sold his interest in the construction company to be full time with his business at ISP. He went right to work in building New State of the Art – UHP Robotic Surface Prep Equipment to his fleet, he along with his team began to focus on improving not just the environmental aspect of the blasting industry, but how to make jobs safer while at the same time increasing efficiencies, which would ultimately lead to a cost savings to the customer. The Robotic Surface Prep equipment not only reduced customer waste disposal, it shortened the total job time and the amount of personnel needed! It also reduced the number of people exposed to hazards and confined spaces when the job included interior areas.
2016 continued to bring challenges to the Innovative Team in the form of Lead Abatement. ISP worked with the developer of a man-made Rock that eliminates High contents of Metals. This system would be called the Aqua Pure System, which allowed our customers to use UHP and our Robotics Systems to basically eliminate the hazards of working with old Lead Coatings & High Metal Coatings removal. This service has been extremely useful in the older refinery applications, and continues to be retrofitted as customers bring in new challenges.
