Thanks to Reonac Energy Systems, our Guelph facility is completely outfitted with energy saving induction lighting. We save 58% energy every year, and with no maintenance, a 100,000 hour burn life, lowest CO2 emissions, and 100% recyclable components, we have the most environmental, efficient and cost effective system available.
We are currently in the process of installing the same lighting system in our Stratford facility.

INVERTER WELDING MACHINES
Our Stratford facility utilizes six Lincoln Flextec 450 welding machines, which save approximately 60% in energy!
