Relatively few businesses stay open for more than three decades with no lull in success. Matritech Inc. is one of these rare entities: it has earned solid staying power by operating as the ideal one-stop shop for machining options and custom metal components. This is how Matritech keeps companies competitive.
Matritech’s modern reputation results from a long history of growth, expansion, and consistent self-improvement, ever since its origins in a humble 3,200-square-foot plant.
Capabilities broadened with new equipment
In 2020, Matritech’s client base has included high-profile names like Bombardier and CVTech-IBC. But 31 years ago, it was a typical newly launched enterprise, focusing on die design and fabrication. From 1989 to 1992, the company expanded its services in the progressive-die sector, gaining such customers as General Motors and Inglis.
The company soon extended its site and bought a complete press system, a feeder-straightener-decoiler. In 1994, Matritech and its 19 employees moved to a new plant in Drummondville, Que. The firm soon broadened its capabilities by purchasing metal-stamping equipment and wire electric discharge machinery.
As space and machining options continued to expand, Matritech invested in a CNC punching machine in 1997, enlarged its plant in 32,000 square feet the following year, and bought a laser punching machine in 1999. By 2000, the company had 70 workers, and it introduced robotic welding in 2003.
Matritech kept on investing in the latest machining innovations – including an automatic press that it bought in 2006 and a new welding robot with an automatic rotating table, combined with pulsed-arc welding technology, which arrived in 2007. Then 2009 saw the installation of a laser, including an integrated automatic loading system with 36 storage drawers. The company received its third welding robot in 2011; two CNC bending presses came the next year, followed by a robotic bending cell in 2014 and a horizontal machining centre with two pallet changers in 2015.
Today, Matritech operates out of an 85,000-square-foot facility with fixed assets of more than $15 million. The company remains the best Canadian option for machining options, custom metal parts, and more.
