About Us

What we do?

Technology’s next wonder is out there, somewhere. It may just be scribbles on a napkin right now, a possibility on paper, but tomorrow, it could change the world – with a little help from EdgeCollab.

As a leading Canadian & global technology solutions provider, we’ve always adapted to changing markets and needs. But with the recent partnerships and new networks, we’re bridging the worlds of makers and manufacturers like never before.

Today, we can design, make, supply and deliver for customers of every size in every corner of the world – whether your product is still a notion on a napkin, in mass production or at any point in between. EdgeCollab combines the agility needed to get to market first with nearly a century of close-knit relationships with technology’s most trusted global companies. Turning ideas no one’s heard of into products everyone knows.
