Get to know us

Our Mission: To deliver the highest quality, most trusted automation solutions in the industry.

RidgeTech Automation Inc. was created to specialize in control system integration, with an 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. Throughout a project’s life cycle, we continuously refocus our attention to the process, mechanical designs, safety requirements, quality requirements and operator interfaces. We then tailor the control system to meet those needs.

Higher Level Innovation

RidgeTech’s team of talented and experienced professionals brings a valuable knowledge base of technology to all projects, no matter the size. We are in constant pursuit of the newest ideas, products and training for our team to make sure we are always able to offer the best possible results. The right solution could be a simple relay or it could be a state-of-the-art control system; whatever the answer, we work with industry’s leading vendors and distributors to ensure that our team is equipped with the most accurate, up-to-date information.
