Sudbury’s Rock-Tech expanding

By: Northern Ontario Business staff

Mining equipment manufacturer Rock-Tech is expanding its operation to a 30,000-square-foot facility in Sudbury.

Rock-Tech manufactures equipment engineered specifically for underground mining applications. Servicing clients in Canada, Mexico, Chile, Australia and Peru, Rock-Tech boasts a product line that features high-quality utility support vehicles, stationary rock-breaking systems and products for fuel, oil and grease handling and storage.

“Relocating to our new 30,000-square-foot facility presents a tremendous opportunity to improve our operations so we can expand into new markets and further position Rock-Tech as an industry leader for equipment engineered for underground mining,” company president Ricky Lemieux said in a statement.

FedNor recently announced it was providing the company with $15,000 to complete an operational assessment to improve manufacturing processes and increase production at its new facility.

The funding is provided through FedNor’s Targeted Manufacturing Initiative for Northern Ontario (TMINO) designed to help companies improve productivity and modernize their operations, leading to sales growth, increased exports and job creation.
