Derek Pauletto

For nearly 25 years now, Derek Pauletto has been blazing a path for himself in the custom fabrication industry. Anyone who has met Derek can agree that his passion for metal fabrication and design gives his work more of a craftsmanship quality than just a finished product.

Derek’s positive spirit and restless imagination pushes his work past ordinary manufacturing and design. This unique energy continues to deliver bright ideas and solutions to fabrication, with an emphasis on delivering the best results for Derek’s clients and partners alike. Derek splits his time between his kids, being a great friend to many, and running Trillion Industries.


From concept to design, to reality, TRILLION INDUSTRIES has built an international reputation for innovative creations and unsurpassed quality. Featuring expert fabrication, modification and repair plus 3-D solid modeling, precision machining and specialized welding; your possibilities are endless. Centrally located in the Manchester business area of Calgary, Trillion Industries continues to be your source for product manufacturing and one-stop solution in design fabrication.

Kurtis Kristianson

Kurtis has been in the fabrication and manufacturing industry for 27 years and specializes in logistics and quality control. Comfortable both on the floor and at a management level, Kurtis can move easily between the design and fabrication process while seeing a project through to completion and delivery. Kurtis started in the shop in spring of 2020 but has been a part of the Trillion Racing Team since 2011 and has helped in the shop on occasion in the past. Currently he is managing day to day operations, working on the heavy fabrication and supporting Derek with the business when needed. Kurtis believes that hard work and consistency pays off in the long run and sees Trillion as a major player, supporting the technology and energy industry in Calgary’s future.

When not busy with the shop, Kurtis works as a commercial adventure photographer (on assignment) and spends his time paragliding, competitive shooting and ultra-running. “Calgary and Southern Alberta is one of the most amazing places to work, live and play. Even with the up boom and bust, Calgary just seems to get better, and the people and businesses are always resilient, I love it here.

Mady Pauletto

Mady has joined us now at the shop and is taking care of the front-office and the phone part-time. Mady brings excellent organizational skills and a warm smile while she learns the day to day operations. Growing up in the Pauletto home, Mady is familiar with the trade in general and is quickly learning how to manage the front-end of a tech and fabrication business.

Mady is an accomplished dancer, and is currently in her first year at Mount Royal where she is studying Criminal Law.
