The new home on Bryn Road is a modern facility boasting 1,115 sq. metres (12,000 sq. ft.) with a substantial manufacturing floor. “The new floor including two dedicated production lines and 3 production cells will allow us to double our throughput”, said KD Singh, Operations Manager for Manufacturing. The production area also includes a substantial space for engineering prototyping and the three environmental test chambers. Mr. Singh also noted that the full height space will facilitate vertical expansion thus providing an opportunity to again double the number of units manufactured per year. Bill Collins, VP Operations said of the new facility “it marks a milestone in the corporation’s history allowing us to complete the transition from a R&D house to a full service manufacturing enterprise”.
