RidgeTech Automation Inc. (RTA) is extremely pleased to announce that they are moving forward with a significant expansion at their head office in Cambridge, Ontario. The expansion is scheduled to be completed by August 1, 2018 and will see the overall office space nearly double in size. “The past 3 years have seen our business grow tremendously, so it makes sense that our office grow as well,” said RTA President Mike Wood. “Our team has put a major focus on providing controls support and solutions to local machine builders and manufacturing facilities, and that effort has resulted in several local partnerships and strong growth for us.” “We said several years ago that we wanted to pay more attention to clients within a 1 hour radius of Cambridge,” said Leigh Spraggett, Vice-President at RTA. “When you look at the number of machine builders and manufacturers located in South Western Ontario and the GTA, this location has been an excellent fit for us.” The 401 corridor from the GTA to London is home to an exceptionally large number of world class manufacturing facilities and automation builders, and has drawn attention both nationally and internationally for being a strong technology hub. “Of course, we love working with our global clients and we will continue to build relationships around the world, but with demand for controls and automation services being so high in our own backyard, it makes sense to work with our neighbors every chance we get.”
The new expansion will be a direct extension of RTA’s existing office space at 250 Royal Oak Road. “We were fortunate that additional space was made available to us simply by knocking down a section of wall.” says Wood. “We can prepare the new office with minimal disruption to ongoing operations.” “Our team really seems to like 250 Royal Oak,” says Adam Kocher, Automation Manager at RTA. “We have an open office designed around team work and collaboration in a building with a deep history of automation, it’s perfect.” “Being easy to get to and from the 401, and being surrounded by world class schools in Kitchener, Waterloo and Guelph are also major bonuses,” added Spraggett.
“We are thrilled to require this additional space and we couldn’t have imagined the growth we have seen over the past few years.” says Wood. “Our success is a direct reflection of the hard work and dedication of our entire team and they deserve a space we can all be proud to call home.”
