Frequently Asked Questions

Check out our list of Frequently Asked Questions below. If you have a question that is not answered here, please contact us.

Vertical integration is the ability of AdvanTec Industrial to offer a comprehensive suite of manufacturing and integration services by integrating the manufacturing and integration capabilities of all of the companies in its portfolio. Companies that make up AdvanTec Industrial are Surround Technologies Inc., Advanced Flow Systems and Advanced Bending Technologies. Together they form AdvanTec Industrial which is a vertically integrated single point of contact that the market can engage should the capabilities of more than one company in the portfolio be required on a specific project/program.

AdvanTec Industrial has facilities in both Canada and the United States. This capability allows us to manufacture and integrate in both countries. Our Oregon facility boasts a wide array of capabilities as well as ample productions pace to meet most manufacturing needs. AdvanTec can look at a client’s specific manufacturing need and find the optimum solution that will ensure the product meets all state/provincial and federal regulatory requirements while ensuring manufacturing and cost efficiencies.

AdvanTec Industrial combined has over 450,000 square feet of manufacturing space at its disposal. Employing over 900 across six facilities, enabling the group to respond quickly to our clients’ needs. Our manufacturing teams are cross-trained and can move efficiently from one task to another without the need for further training. We tightly monitor our work schedules and can add shifts as required to add capacity in any of our plants.

AdvanTec has a proven track record of enabling its clients to meet aggressive manufacturing ramp-ups without sacrificing quality or cost.

AdvanTec Industrial has significant purchasing power. Due to the volume of projects/programs going through our multiple facilities we are able to work with our suppliers and vendors to obtain competitive pricing and pass on those savings to our clients. Our supply chain department carries decades of collective experience and is able to source commodities (raw material & parts) both nationally and internationally and achieve impressive results.

A “turnkey” solution is our ability to provide our client with a “fire and forget” solution for manufacturing. Our clients provide us with all of the necessary information required to manufacture their products/systems and AdvanTec Industrial will ensure that the system is ready to be picked up at one of our facilities and delivered to the owner or to our clients for additional work, if so required. AdvanTec Industrial can take on the entire manufacturing scope of work (SOW) should that be required or a partial one delivering subassemblies/components that are then ready for final integration by the client.

Design for Manufacturing (DFMA) is a continuous process that should be implemented at the product conceptualization stage and carried through the prototyping stage and all the way through the manufacturing scale up phase. There is not set phase at which it is critical for this to occur due to the fact that every phase presents a new opportunity to optimize product design to suit a manufacturing capability or a manufacturing need.

AdvanTec Industrial does not engage in process design engineering of systems. However AdvanTec Industrial possesses significant engineering capabilities to support our clients in manufacturing. Our engineering group consists of electrical, mechanical and structural engineers that can ensure our clients engineering design is ready for manufacturing and that our clients drawings meet our manufacturing needs as well as those of various regulatory bodies.

AdvanTec Industrial is able to manufacture custom designed pressure vessels and custom designed enclosures. This unique capability enables us to then integrate these two elements and provide the market with a turnkey solution that allows our clients to, in some examples, have a fully manufactured and tested self contained system delivered in a fraction of the time and cost that a site built and integrated system would normally take.
