RidgeTech Automation Inc. was built to specialize in control systems integration, with a keen understanding that there is a much bigger picture. The control system is the nerve centre of a much larger entity, and we work hard to ensure that our solutions consider every aspect of the machine or system.
Inc. welcomes the opportunity to be included in the Waterloo Region’s
Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem under Smart Robotics, presented in an AI
Cluster Map by the Waterloo Economic Development Corporation. The Cluster
Map illustrates multiple branches of AI supported by local companies within
Waterloo Region’s technology network. The Waterloo AI Ecosystem is at the
centre of Canada’s emergence as a global leader in applied Artificial
Intelligence, and Ridgetech is proud to be included alongside many highly
regarded companies providing support and innovation to the development and
growth of Artificial Intelligence within the Waterloo Region.
RidgeTech has kicked off 2019 by successfully receiving accreditation with ContractorCheck, a Health & Safety compliance management firm serving the construction and manufacturing industries. ContractorCheck evaluates and monitors companies across Canada to ensure they meet and exceed legislative and client specific health & safety requirements. They manage the Contractor Health & Safety Programs of some of the largest names in the industry and their evaluation process is detailed and rigorous. Successfully receiving this accreditation demonstrates our commitment to Health & Safety for both our team members and our clients and we are proud to be starting the new year on such a positive note.
The team at RidgeTech Automation is excited to be settled into our newly expanded office space at 250 Royal Oak Road in Cambridge, ON. We recently grew the office from 3000 to 5000 square feet and added more desks, meeting space and a new boardroom. “Adding the new space has opened up the overall look and feel of the office and really brightened everything up,” said RidgeTech President Leigh Spraggett, “we needed to expand the space to meet the requirements of our growing team.” Mark Burtenshaw, VP Operations at RidgeTech added “When we first moved into 250 Royal Oak we were at 18 people and now we’re at 28 people and that growth naturally required more space.” The new office takes advantage of glass walls to keep the space bright and open as well as integrating features like height adjustable desks so team members can stand to work if they want to. The layout offers flexible work spaces where team members can work together or independently as required with a key focus around communication and collaboration. “We’ve been proud to show off the renovations and the feedback from clients and suppliers has been extremely positive” says Spraggett.
