While Prodomax has built a solid reputation servicing the automotive industry, the company is also capable and experienced in producing a wide variety of manufacturing systems for other industries, such as telecommunications, agriculture, electronics, solar energy, mining and consumer products. It is the diversity that really sets Prodomax Automation apart from its competition.
Prodomax Automation began in 1971, at a time when there were only a few manufacturing companies in the Barrie area – Northern Telecom (Nortel) and West Bend. “There was a need for a small, special purpose machinery builder to service mechanic needs of local companies,” says Don Leslie, Director of Sales & Marketing.
Since expanding its offerings, Prodomax is among a small group of manufacturing companies that can provide a range of full in-house capabilities. ” We provide our customers with turn-key manufacturing solutions,” beams Leslie, ‘Customers come and say ‘here is our product’ and we go from a blank sheet of paper and come up with what is the most efficient and cost-effective manufacturing solution.’
Surviving Turbulent Times
For a business that deals mainly in the automotive sector, Prodomax was certainly affected by the recession. Fortunately, the company predicted the tough times ahead and was able to act proactively.
