January 25, 2021 · Dartmouth, Nova Scotia · Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA)
Sensortech is pleased to announce more expansion news in Dartmouth Nova Scotia Canada. With the help from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA). We are receiving a $393,367 contribution to purchase new equipment and expand our facilities to increase our capacity to manufacture custom acoustic products, such as transducers and hydrophones, for use in energy, oceanography and the defense sectors. This project is expected to create 10 jobs.
Today’s announcement further demonstrates the Government of Canada’s commitment to Canadian businesses – helping them innovate and get new products to market. Funding for strategic projects like these ones will help the region seize new opportunities to build a stronger, more resilient and sustainable economy in communities throughout Atlantic Canada.
“When we moved our assembly plant of underwater acoustic sensors to the Centre for Ocean Ventures and Entrepreneurship (COVE) in Nova Scotia, we started with only one desk. In less than two years, we have expanded our footprint with more production space, new equipment and new hires. We have been fortunate to build excellent local relationships and we are thrilled with our partnership with ACOA to be able to further fund our expansion and hire the staff that we need to venture into new markets and do our part in creating a stronger blue economy.” Niru Somayajula, President & CEO, Sensor Technology Ltd.
