Emerging with just 10 staff members in 2004, Markham-based electronics manufacturing solutions provider Mara Technologies Inc. boasts more than 150 employees worldwide today, as recently marked its 10th anniversary in business.
Founded by industry veterans Jack Vincken and Frank Lam, the company has grown from a single 12,000-sq-ft location in Markham ON to 40,000 sq ft today, plus a similar sized facility in DonGuan, China.
“To be in business at a high level for this amount of time is a testament to our loyal employees, our growing customer base and the full support we have from ownership” says Matthew Ruscica, general manager. “It is really amazing to see the progress we’ve made – with not only an expanded local presence, but also a global footprint. This is due to the confidence our costumers have in our quality, reliability and service and, just as importantly, the loyalty and expertise we have with our employees.
Ruscica stresses the fact that Mara Technologies has experienced zero turnover and has never had to lay-off staff – playing a large role in its success.
“We have continually re-invested into our facilities, equipment and technologies to stay cutting edge,” he adds.
