Brock Solutions derives its origins from the amalgamation of S-S Technologies Inc., SAF Drive Systems Ltd. and Picard Technologies Inc., with each original company playing an important role in demonstrating the quality, stability and strength with which the Brock name has become synonymous.
S-S Technologies Inc. began as the Software Development Group of Sutherland-Schultz Ltd. in Kitchener in the late 1970s. At that time, Sutherland-Schultz was a fully integrated engineering/construction company. As a division of Sutherland-Schultz, the Software Development Group developed expertise in, and a loyal customer base for, Integrated Systems services, and began marketing its unique automation products. During fifteen plus years of operations, the Group developed a reputation for excellent customer service and innovative solutions to complex automation problems.
SAF Drives Systems Ltd. has built its success by providing drives expertise and engineered drive solutions to its industrial customers. SAF was incorporated in 1976 as Saftronics, and was based in Guelph and subsequently Stratford, Ontario over the next ten years. In 1987 Sutherland-Schultz Limited acquired SAF's Canadian shares and the company was moved to Kitchener, Ontario where it presently bases its operations. As a part of Sutherland-Schultz, SAF evolved from a leading standard drives manufacturer to a fully integrated drive systems engineering firm.
Picard Technologies, Brock's Pharmaceutical division began its operations in 1993 in Montreal and moved to Toronto a few years later. In 2001, Picard merged its unique talents with S-S Technologies to offer a wider range of services to the Biotech and Pharmaceutical industries.
