Welcome to Imperial Blasting!


Imperial Blasting is a small family owned and operated business with Guy West completing all of the blasting and his mum Sue attending to the office and admin tasks.

Guy was an originally employee of Imperial Blasting when it was located at Beresfield. When the previous owners wished to sell the company Guy decided to make his dreams come true and purchase the business.

Shortly after buying the business Guy got to work on making Imperial Blasting bigger and better with more services for their customers. Therefore the decision was made to move the business to Cardiff industrial area to a much bigger workshop with newer equipment such as a bigger blast chamber, hoist facilities, and many more services to come.

However after 5 years of operating from Cardiff industrial area Guy noticed a trend emerging where the area was getting increasingly busy and difficult to access. Therefore after liaising with several customers for feedback the choice was made to move again. After searching in many different areas a smaller location at 14 Nicholson Street Toronto was leased. This location remained central being only 15 minutes from our old Pendlebury Road location and 5 minutes off the M1 Pacific Motorway making it far less difficult for our long distance customers to access us.

Over the past 5 years Guy has spent significant time researching and developing techniques to blast the biggest and most difficult items such as entire roof skins removed from cars or the extremely tedious Mazda RX bonnet skins with the framework removed finally providing a solution for the rust that was previous unblastable without distortion as well as not ferrous items such as aluminium boat hulls.

The move to Nicholson Street seen a change of direction for Imperial downsizing and no longer providing services for large industrial blasting or painting allowing Guy to focus on catering for our automotive customers and their ever changing requirements.

Guy from a young age always had a passion and drive for cars and motorcycles. From helping his dad when he was younger all the way through his teens to where he starting working on his own vehicles. When the position came available at Imperial Blasting it was a dream come true for Guy and you could not stop him from working. Guy has been with Imperial for 5 years now and has blasted some of the rarest priceless cars all the way to elite MotorEx unveil cars. With many years experience and dedication to meet the tightest deadlines Guy is known for getting the job done to the highest standard.

Guy aims to offer the highest quality at affordable prices and the most convenient services to assist our customers to get their projects completed.
