The product portfolio is aimed at an early diagnosis und surveillance of machines to counter pre-emptively machine downtimes. Because of its innovative Laser Alignment Systems and the surveillance and the vibration measurements techniques, Prüftechnik has been a market leader in several areas for decades.

Since 2007 Prüftechnik has a location with 14 employees in Laval near Montréal. 2012 the company expanded and invested in a larger building. Florian Buder, director of Prüftechnik in Canada, stresses the successful establishment of his company in Canada. "The business is running great and we have a lot of satisfied clients here in Canada. The country offers a stable economic situation, he adds. Traditionally there are strong commercial ties between Europe and Canada which makes it easier to enter the market. The regulations are clearly structured and supporting organizations help enterprises like Prüftechnik to feel welcome in the new environment very quickly."

Next to the larger storage space, the newly acquired building also has its own reparation- and calibration laboratory with granite tables and anti-electrostatic furniture and floors.
