Matritech Inc. has been a force in Canadian industry for more than 30 years, a rare success story. It has lasted longer than many competing businesses by functioning as the perfect one-stop shop for machining services and custom metal parts – and by keeping customers successful. But the company did not start out with this status. Matritech’s reputation has stemmed from a three-decade history of growth, expansion, and constant improvement, beginning with its humble origins in a 3,200-square-foot facility.
Attracting high-profile client names
Today, the Matritech customer base includes such high-profile names as Bombardier and CVTech-IBC. In 1989, it was like any other newly launched enterprise, focusing on fabrication and die design. The young company expanded its services in the progressive-die sector over its first three years, winning clients like Inglis and General Motors.
Soon, the firm expanded its site and purchased a complete press system – a feeder-straightener-decoiler. In 1994, Matritech moved to a new facility in Drummondville, Que., with its 19 employees. The company bought metal-stamping machinery and wire electric discharge equipment to widen its machining services.
Space and capabilities kept growing, so Matritech purchased a CNC punching machine in 1997, extended the facility the following year by 32,000 square feet, and bought a laser punching machine in 1999. The company had 70 employees by 2000 and introduced robotic welding in 2003.
Matritech continued to invest in new machining innovations: an automatic press that it purchased in 2006; a new welding robot with an automatic rotating table, combined with pulsed-arc welding technology, which it bought in 2007; and the installation of a laser, including an integrated automatic loading system with 36 storage drawers, in 2009. Two years after that, the firm received its third welding robot. The following year saw the arrival of two CNC bending presses, and a robotic bending cell made its debut in 2014 and a horizontal machining centre with two pallet changers in 2015.
In 2021, Matritech operates in an 85,000-square-foot plant with fixed assets of more than $15 million. It is still the best choice for machining services.
