Design

Kalitec designs their products with the goal of making the most efficient products on the market. Design is taken above and beyond the standard parts available on the market. For example, when manufacturing the Kalitec post (with KalifixTM technology), the pole is custom made by an exclusive supplier using a special type of steel.

Kalitec also has a unique expertise in designing with aluminum, a material that is essential to many of their products. In fact, the company has more than 50 extrusion molds and 5 different alloys that are used when manufacturing their products.

Metal Transformation

Kalitec transforms metals using advanced CAD/CAM techniques. Both aluminum sheets and aluminum extrusions are transformed using automated, high-precision cutting equipment.

Paint

Kalitec uses a powder paint technique to colour and protect their products. A production line with high-performance equipment allows for a high level of productivity while maintaining the utmost quality.

Graphics

Kalitec produces the graphic components of their products themselves in a climate-controlled department. High performance printers and rolling mills ensure consistent quality.

Thermoplastics

Kalitec has had their own thermoplastic encapsulation department for the past 10 years. This has allowed the company to offer their exclusive Print ArmorTM, a finishing process that increases product durability.

Electronics

A new factory dedicated to electronics opened on August 1, 2016. With a surface area of 8,500 sq ft., Kalitec was able to increase their production capacity tenfold in this ever-growing sector.

30 YEARS OF EXPERTISE: 
1988, the beginNings
Foundation of Kalitec in a garage of Ste-Rose. The company initially offered high performance products in the field of signaling.


1996, Kalifix™DEVELOPED
This innovative system makes it possible to restore, in a few seconds, a damaged signal support without having to replace it with a new one!
It requires simple tooling for maintenance and complies with the L6X safety standards of the supports yielding under impact.
2005, LED DISPLAY
Pioneer in intelligent signage in Quebec with the reinforced LED panel. Since then, a wide range of intelligent signaling solutions have been added and allowed KALITEC to position itself as a major player in the market.
2009, Print-Armor™
This technology is the culmination of nearly a decade of research and development. The Print-Armor ™ process completely covers the surface of the panels with a satin-finish thermoplastic layer, greatly increasing their resistance to weather and vandalism.
2012, Smart Display 2.0
Kalitec invests in the development of electronic solutions. This leads to the 2nd generation flashing panels and Kali-Flash.
2016, on the way to the future ...
