At Kalitec, we have more than 30 years of industry expertise under our belts.
1988 – The year it all began
Jean Lapointe founded Kalitec in a small garage in Laval, Quebec. The company’s sole focus at the time was high-quality road signs.
1996 – Along came KalifixTM
The innovative design of the KalifixTM sign post meant that it could be repaired in a matter of seconds after being hit by a vehicle, simply by replacing the breakaway pin. Among the other selling points: easy upkeep using basic tools and a structure that complies with all major road and safety standards.
2005 – LED-ing the way forward
Kalitec became a Canadian pioneer in LED-based signage. In the years that followed, it ventured into smart signage solutions, making it a major player in this specialty market.
2009 – Print ArmorTM
After 10 years of R&D, Kalitec introduced Print ArmorTM, a semi-gloss thermoplastic protective layer that greatly increases a sign’s resistance to weather-induced damage and vandalism.
2012 – Smart signage 2.0
Kalitec started investing in the development of advanced electronic solutions, which led to the introduction of second-generation flashing signs and Kali-FlashTM beacons.
2016 : A DynamikTM look at the future of signage
The first DynamikTM system was rolled out. Kalitec has since been developing a full range of digital remote-controlled smart signage solutions.
