Founder Story & History of ZPE

Stanley (Stan) Zazula, was raised on a farm in north central Alberta. As a young man, his love for anything mechanical grew into his passion. After graduating high school in Calgary, Stan found a need to further his technical education. He attended Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) to study Auto Mechanics, Boiler Engineering and Machine Shop & Welding, all of which fields he worked in…

While firing boilers in a Drumheller coal mine, Stan found himself craving more education which led him to the Facility of Engineering at the University of Alberta for one year. He then transferred to the University of British Columbia where he graduated in 1955 with honours and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Stan took a job in Calgary with Shell Oil to gain a few years of drilling experience. During this time, Stan was introduced to many companies and several are the equipment lines we represent today; Milton Roy, Busch and Smith & Loveless. He played an integral role in establishing a successful business in the process equipment sector. 

Around 1960, Stan rented his first office space on 17th Avenue and in 1963 Zazula Process Equipment Ltd. was born. After about 14 years, business was growing, and Stan needed a bigger space…

In 1974 he purchased 2 houses on 10th Avenue to run ZPE out of. There was a shop added to the back in 1980, and Zazula Process Equipment Ltd. was operated at this location for 37 years.

In 2011, the Zazula’s decided it was time for a change and purchased 4609 Manitoba Rd and the rest is history!

Sadly Stan passed away in 2016, and Zazula’s future is now in the hands of  his son’s, Kerry and Yuri. They have the vision to carry the Zazula name, its strong tradition of sound engineering and fabrication, loyal customer service, and continuing to represent premier equipment lines. The future holds well as additional products are positioned to find their way into the ZPE lineup for many years to come.

Zazula Process Equipment Ltd. has grown from one man’s dream and dedication, to a thriving Alberta based company geared for the future.
