One of the unsung hero’s of Canadian manufacturing, Burlington, Ontario based IRCO Automation, has been a tier one manufacturer of reliable, innovative and quality products for welding systems for over half a century.
These include welding positioners, manipulators, beam positioners, turntables, turning rolls, head and tail stocks, as well as fully automated custom welding systems covering payloads of up to 200,00 lbs (90,000 kg).
The company began manufacturing weld positioning equipment in 1963 under a licensing agreement with an American firm that would provide the designs for the products. By 1969, the company had acquired sufficient product knowledge in the industry to buy out the licensing agreement with its American partner and begin to design and manufacture its own line of improved weld positioning equipment.
The company is controlled goods certified, has very high Canadian content, and conducts all its design/engineering/manufacturing activities at its Burlington Ontario HQ.
