Hi-Tec Profiles is one of Western Canada’s leading providers of steel processing services, including profile cutting and bending technology. The firm’s current successes are the result of humble beginnings and a companywide commitment to growth.
Three manufacturing professionals who came together collaboratively to address a growing market demand for innovative steel-processing technologies created Hi-Tec.
Hi-Tec started out in the Canadian agricultural industry. As the firm quickly expanded, management put forth a plan for further growth and investment.
A turning point for Hi-Tec was when we decided to open the opportunity for staff to invest in the company. By enabling staff members to have a greater stake in the firm, Hi-Tec could purchase new equipment and, in turn, create a personally-dedicated team of staff members.
Hi-Tec started out in a 12,000-square foot shop, with one shear, one press break, one torch plasma table, and a grand total of five employees, including counting the president and vice president. Upon approaching our 25-year benchmark it is safe to say Hi-Tec Profiles has reached new heights.
Today, Hi-Tec is home to Eleven Lasers, One Tube Laser, Two Torch/Plasma Tables, Nine Press Brakes and Two Sets Of Rolls. With over 60 employees and facilities that operator 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Hi-Tec has grown from the ground up.
Our employees-turned-shareholders represent a major portion of our firm’s management staff, and continue to reinforce a legacy of internal, as well as external, development. Because of this grass-roots growth strategy, Hi-Tec’s team has a close and personal commitment to the growth of the company.
Hi-Tec’s current and future successes are built on a companywide commitment to quality and a reputation, which are the result of an exceptional team. When it comes to laser cutting or any manufacturing service- reliability and experiential knowledge are king. Consequently, the firm continues to invest not only in top-of-the-line equipment, but also in staff training and development.
