What We Do

We are the leading supplier of cathodic protection and corrosion mitigation technologies for reinforced concrete and masonry structures globally.

Our work started in 1989 when David Whitmore and the Vector Restoration team completed the first ever Norcure® Electrochemical Chloride Extraction project in North America, the Burlington Skyway, for the Ministry of Transportation Ontario. In 1996 Vector Restoration was part of the team that received the Nova Award for the Norcure® ECE technique. Awarded by the Construction Innovation Forum, the Nova Award is the construction industry’s highest honor for innovation.

In 1997, Whitmore filed the first of many patents that would kickstart the field of corrosion mitigation and cathodic protection for steel-reinforced concrete structures. He established VCT in 1999, and the company continues to push the industry forward.
