ABBOTSFORD, B.C. (September 15th, 2022) – A world leader in tool innovation with roots planted firmly in Abbotsford has strengthened those ties today with the official opening of a massive new manufacturing facility on Marshall Road. RAD Torque Systems, and its parent company New World Technologies Inc., has moved production to the vast new building so it can continue to develop new torque technology that heavy industry around the world relies on. RAD Torque Systems currently employs more than 150 people, and continues to grow by regularly adding new members to the team through on-going hiring in engineering, manufacturing and assembling roles.
“Our new facility means our whole team is now under one roof, so we can work, learn and move forward together as RAD Torque continues to grow, providing more jobs for the local community, as well as cutting-edge technology to serve the industries we work with around the world,” said Dan Provost, President, and Founder of RAD Torque Systems, who started the company more than 25 years ago.
RAD Torque is recognized as the leading Canadian manufacturer of pneumatic, battery-powered, electronic pistol-grip torque wrenches, which are shipped and sold globally. Customers such as Boeing, General Electric and Caterpillar (to name a few) rely on RAD products for smooth day-to-day running of their global brands, and RAD Torque Systems has sales offices worldwide to supply an international client base with their tools.
The products from RAD Torque Systems have revolutionized procedures in many industries, including aerospace, defence, mining, wind power, railways, and manufacturing. State-of-the-art milling machines are a key feature at the new facility, helping increase the quality and production of RAD tools.
“What this facility means to us we have much more space to put in our equipment, MORE equipment, which means we can create more products faster. It’s going to help us with our lead times for everybody’s product faster, which means we can sell more, and all the employees will be in one building, rather than the eight smaller buildings we were separated in before” said Pat McFadden, Vice President of Operations.
The new building at 30722 Marshall Road was officially opened today, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
