DAVE PASIN

Park Board Candidate

Dave Pasin recognized the need for safe, green, environmentally friendly technologies that improved safety for workers and consumers that also lessen environmental impact. Dave has an extensive background in the paints, coatings, manufacturing and cleaning products industry. He founded Gibson Paint which became a leader in Canada and North America in innovative, environmentally friendly coatings. Coatings developed by Mr. Pasin were used extensively in architectural, aerospace, industrial, commercial, aerospace and marine applications.

Recognizing a need for greener, more environmentally friendly cleaners and solvents, Dave then founded InTech Environmental Canada Corp to develop and manufacture safer, benzene-free, solvents for manufacturing of paints, coating and adhesives as well as precision cleaning applications. He holds seven patents and is a leader in the development of safer, green solvents for use in those industries.

His continued interest in safer cleaning products led to the purchase of Pink Solution – the manufacturer of a consumer-leaning product. Since acquiring Pink Solution, Dave has not only revamped many products to make them even safer for consumers and the environment. He has also developed new, green, environmentally friendly plant and mineral-based products such as fabric softener, spot and stain remover and safe, chemical-free, hand and body lotion, shampoo, pet shampoo and self waxing car wash.

Never content to be complacent, Dave and his team are constantly working on developing and marketing safer, greener products for industry and consumers as well as reducing the use of plastic in packaging whenever possible.

Dave is a graduate of the University of Victoria and attended Seattle Pacific University for post-graduate work in Community Counselling. He is very active in his community, participating in various amateur sports and is involved in many community and service organizations such as Lions International and serving as current President of Hillcrest Community Centre in Vancouver.
