Electronics Manufacturer Proves Innovative, Flexible

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 8, 2011) - Whether you are looking for someone to manufacture your prototype electronic product or take on a bigger-volume run, look no further than Edmonton Research Park tenant and featured innovator LogiCan Technologies Inc., an award-winning contract electronics manufacturing service.

Exporting over 80 per cent of its work to customers in the U.S., Mexico and the United Kingdom, LogiCan Technologies remains competitive by investing in high-speed robotics equipment and providing training to its employees.

"The success of LogiCan is attributable to our efforts to create innovative products and business models," notes Harvey Sheydwasser, president of LogiCan Technologies, which has survived electronic industry meltdowns in 1999 and 2009.

LogiCan Technologies began life as LSI Logic in 1988 by manufacturing electronic assemblies and operating a semi-conductor facility. Facing closure, employees led an acquisition bid, which led to the reborn LogiCan Technologies in 1994.

LogiCan Technologies plans to target new markets by increasing awareness in the manufacturing industry to obtain new clients and suppliers — by building on accolades from customers and industry peers, including entrepreneur of the year, outstanding Canadian contractor, exporter of the year, and finishing as a regional finalist in Canada's 50 best-managed companies program.

The Edmonton Research Park (ERP) houses dozens of research companies and is managed by Edmonton Economic Development Corporation (EEDC). The ERP is also a stakeholder in TEC Edmonton, a joint venture with the University of Alberta.
