Our History


Experience & High Technology

Since opening for business 1998, JP Drafting Ltd. has proven to be an industry leader, the result of innovation, experience and the adaptation of new technology.

President Jean-Paul Phillipon, a pioneer in the application of CAD programs in detailing for his fabrication company, discovered and implemented a specialized steel drafting program called XSteel, developed by Tekla.

With the acquisition of XSteel, JP Drafting Ltd. Has taken steel detailing to a new level.

Our Market is Growing

With this new advanced capability, our business took off. We were offering better quality drawings, with greater accuracy & precision, and with the added bonus of speed. The drawings could be completed quicker, great for tight timelines, but this also translated into cost savings for our customers.

We now service customers across Canada and the United States. Fabricators of all sizes are taking advantage of our advanced services. The precision details provided simplifies their job of fabricating and the erection drawings are a real boon to erectors. We welcome your enquiries and look forward to quoting on your next structural steel project.

We Are Always Available

Although we have grown to be serious player in the market place, we haven’t forgotten what got us to this stage: attention to detail, and the understanding that it is looking after you, our customer, that makes us successful. We keep our lines of communication open, and key personnel, right up to our President, are available for your contact.

Our Technology Saves You Time & Money

At JP Drafting we have keenly embraced technology, realizing the advantages that it provides our customers. Speed and accuracy are two major benefits to you, but it is our 3D modeling that really shines in complex situations.

Many of our projects are for specialized steel structures such as equipment platforms, tank stands, or retrofitted canopies. With our 3D modeling capabilities, we can show our clients how their existing structures or equipment will integrate with the new structures. This provides them with valuable insight and information should any changes be required.

We Have Specialized Expertise

Building square boxes is relatively easy, but today’s commercial and industrial structures are seldom square. They have curves, corners, compound angles, and unique integration situations. Our highly skilled personnel utilizing the latest in computer technology can address virtually any of these situations. This capability has earned us the respect of professionals in many industries, building structural steel including, but not limited to:

  • Architectural Features (mezzanines, canopies, catwalks, domes)
  • General Construction
  • Mining Equipment
  • Gas Plant Buildings & Retrofits
  • Oil Refineries
  • Pulp Mills
  • Sewage Treatment Plants
  • Saw Mills

If you are contemplating a structure that requires exacting standards and specialized expertise, contact JP Drafting for your detailed drawings - always accurate and on time.



It is our mission to provide competitive and accurate
detailing in a time effective hassle free manner.

Through our knowledgable staff, JP Drafting will utilize
our experience to get the job done right, the first time.
