About Us

Amtech Aeronautical Limited is a professional engineering consulting firm that provides specialized engineering, product development, and project management services in aeronautical systems, science, and engineering disciplines, in military engineering, and in automated systems. Since starting business in 1990 as Amtech Consulting and incorporating in 1991 as Amtech Aeronautical Limited, Amtech has developed and maintained a proven record of successful engineering, certification, and R&D projects in supporting the needs of our Government and Private Sector clients.

Amtech maintains engineering facilities in Canada in Calgary and Medicine Hat, Alberta and network locations in Montreal, Quebec, Edmonton, Alberta, and in Victoria, British Columbia. Our engineering facilities include computer-aided design and analysis capabilities (LabVIEW®, Microsoft Visual Studio®, AutoCAD®, Algor®, Mathcad®, MATLAB®, Fortran, C/C++, RAPID®, Inventor®). Our Medicine Hat facilities include the headquarters engineering office and a System Integration Facility (SIF). The SIF has been used to support a variety of military, R&D, automation / PLC and aeronautical projects. The Calgary and Victoria locations, near international airports, are ideally situated for conducting projects in aircraft certification engineering and product development for the aeronautical industry.

Amtech networks with other organizations and specialists as required to support complex, multidisciplinary projects. Where appropriate for the conduct of a project, we integrate with our clients engineering and design approval organizations as required to support project requirements. We have long-term engineering services agreements with a number of large organizations and OEM's. These capabilities allow Amtech to take on a wide range of projects within the following three core areas:

Security for Facilities/Personnel

Amtech currently holds a valid Facility Security Clearance at Level III (Top Secret), with approved Document Safeguarding at the level of SECRET issued by the Canadian Industrial Security Directorate (CISD), PWGSC.
