Raven to open Canadian headquarters
With the opening of a new location in Regina, Saskatchewan, Raven's expansion within western Canada solidifies the company's global commitment to autonomous farming. The Canadian headquarters, with its significant capacity for machine production and five acres for testing, is positioned to be the central campus for precision and autonomous agriculture innovation, training, and service.
“Establishing a headquarters for Raven Canada in Saskatchewan proves our dedication to this pivotal market,” says Brian Meyer, Vice President of Raven Applied Technology. “Our history with precision ag solutions in Canada has provided confidence that this location will be a catalyst for significant growth for Raven.”
In June 2020, Raven completed its acquisition of DOT Technology Corporation, the Saskatchewan-based developer of the Dot Power Platform. The new 21,000 square foot building, which is set to open November 2020, will be dedicated to manufacturing, assembling, and testing Raven Dot® Power Platforms.
“In the past 11 months, Raven Autonomy has boldly grown in technology and partnerships. Through Dot, we have a long-standing relationship with the Canadian agriculture market and have seen interest in autonomous machinery that is unmatched,” says Wade Robey, Raven Autonomy Executive Director. “Canada has proved to be a critical region for Raven for over 25 years. This new location will allow us to expedite product development, as well as provide outstanding service and support to our customers and partners.”
As part of the Investment Partnership Program (IPP), Raven is also partnering with Economic Development Regina Inc. (EDR). This program will allow Raven to provide resources to EDR’s Agriculture and Food Initiative to support Saskatchewan collaboration for agriculture throughout western Canada.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working and living in this community for years,” says Marco Coppola, Raven Autonomy Business Development Manager. “Saskatchewan has always been pushing agriculture into the future, so our partnership with EDR is a seamless way for us to listen and support the momentum that’s already here. Community involvement and investment is a top priority for Raven, and we are eager to see the industry advancements that this program will produce.”
