plans to add six new jobs in the next 6 to 12 months on the expectation that its welding technology will revolutionize the manufacturing industry.
start-up, founded in 2005, has developed welding technology so quick, efficient and cost effective that the company's president, Alain Piette
, can see it helping bring more manufacturing jobs back to North America.
"We basically negate the cost of labor," Piette says.
The company, a Delphi-spin-off, has worked with major government agencies, like NASA and the U.S. Department of Defense. Even though the technology is still in its infancy, Piette wants to form more partnerships with commercial manufacturers for products like wheelchairs, automobiles and bicycles.
"If it's intended to have wheels and move, we can do it," Piette says.
