Local Underwater Drone Company Celebrates Expansion with New Head Office
December 12, 2016
New office expansion enables Deep Trekker to accelerate growth in the submerged robotic vehicle industry.
Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, December 05, 2016 – Deep Trekker Inc., Canadian manufacturer of underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and submersible pipe crawlers, is pleased to announce the expansion to their new head office in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario to accommodate for the growing, global popularity the company’s robots.
In addition to the head office relocating within Kitchener-Waterloo, the new, larger office and manufacturing space supports the company’s growth strategy. With Deep Trekker’s expanding product line from ROVs to include the DT340 Pipe Crawler, a tool used to inspect sewer, storm, and potable water infrastructure, the company was in need of more space and resources.
“For us, staying within Waterloo region made perfect sense,” explains Sam MacDonald, President of Deep Trekker. “The region is rich with diverse talent from well-known prestigious colleges and universities, as well as tech companies. With this new office, we have the opportunity to further expand our team and engineering capabilities; also, increasing our ability to service current and future projects.”
Incorporated in late 2010, Deep Trekker sold its first ROV to a fish farm in Norway. Since then thousands of Deep Trekker ROVs have been delivered to aquaculture companies, search and rescue teams, police squads, navy fleets, hydro dam operators, and commercial divers around the world.
The company continues to disrupt the ROV and crawler markets by providing exceptional, portable robotic systems. Deep Trekker takes tremendous pride in their products and their willingness to support their community of customers.
Deep Trekker Inc. was founded in 2010 with a mission to create portable, affordable, and easy to use underwater inspection tools. The company is headquartered in Ontario Canada, with engineering and manufacturing all completed in house. Based on a clean sheet design, the premiere product, the DTG2 ROV was introduced in limited run in August 2011. With the success of the DTG2 ROV system, the company launched the DTX2 ROV in 2015. These robust underwater ROVs are currently being used around the world in industries such as aquaculture, commercial diving, municipalities, police search and rescue, military, and research. In 2016, the company expanded the municipalities market by launching a submersible pipe crawler system, based on the same principles of the ROV systems.
