But he was more interested in engineering that resulted in the tangible, inarguably objective and physical results associated with the visible expressions of his work and, noting the abundant natural resources in Alberta, chose to work at some relatively large engineering, procurement and construction companies that were involved with the petrochemical industry.
Though Mr. Sterling quickly grasps the large overall perspective, he can drill down to learn all the details associated with any particular topic of interest and so, when an opportunity to join ABSA (the pressure equipment regulatory authority in Alberta) as a Safety Codes Officer arose, he leaped at the chance. As a result, he further enhanced and acquired proficiently detailed knowledge of pressure equipment design rules including ASME codes, referenced standards, related statutes, and regulations. Significant and detailed experience was gained in a variety and wide range of industries, including petro-chemicals, chemical processing manufacturing, oil and gas, SAGD emulsion pipelines, pulp and paper, refrigeration, steam generation and utility, etc – all of which use pressure equipment.
Eager to apply this knowledge to assist industry, Mr. Sterling directed Cammar to start offering independent pressure equipment engineering services to industry in 2015. He is also actively involved with his professional engineering association as a volunteer, offering advice and recommendations when requested.
As a result, the Corporation has a solid foundation based on honesty, service, unyielding perseverance of quality and safety, proficient regulatory and technical expertise, thoroughness and practical experience.
Cammar Corporation’s goal and vision is to optimize pressure equipment commerce in Canada, while enhancing public safety for all.
