FFG Canada Ltd. is a Canadian company formed in February 2012 as a joint venture under Canadian law by FFG and Industrial Rubber Company Ltd. (IRC). Both companies each hold a 50% interest, with FFG having full operational control.
Located in the Canadian province of New Brunswick on the Atlantic Ocean, the company is about 5 minutes west of the coastal town of Bathurst on Route 430, in close proximity to the IRC.
Originally established to manufacture, assemble and deliver 18 WiSENT 2 AEV armoured engineer vehicles for the Canadian Armed Forces, FFG Canada's core activities now encompass all aspects of production, repair and overhaul of heavy wheeled and tracked military vehicles.
The staff consists without exception of locally based Canadian specialists who were initially trained for the AEV project at FFG in Flensburg, Germany and later accompanied by FFG experts on site in Bathurst if required.
To complete its tasks, FFG Canada has all the necessary knowledge, technical capabilities and essential certifications of a modern industrial production facility for highly complex specialised military vehicles. For this purpose, the acquired company premises were equipped with modern production halls and manufacturing equipment as well as various test facilities in the outdoor area. The property is 100% owned by FFG Canada.
The 16,500 m2 fully fenced company premises are video-monitored and alarm-secured. It offers two large production and assembly halls with heavy-duty floors, as well as two warehouses and an office building. In addition, the company has its own welding shop for all welding work, including the welding of armoured steel, as well as a modern paint shop in which complete vehicles can be painted. Powerful gantry cranes in all halls and the welding and paint shop allow the positioning of the heaviest components. All buildings are naturally illuminated and heated, so that work can be carried out all year round without restrictions.
The logistical connections of FFG Canada are excellent. The company site is located directly on Highway 11 as a regional north-south connection along the Canadian Atlantic coast and is about 2.5 hours by car from the provincial capital Fredericton with the major base CFB Gagetown. The nearest major industrial centres in Miramichi and Moncton are less than 2 hours away. The city of Bathurst itself has a regional airport with several daily connections to and from Montreal. For goods traffic and container handling, the deep sea port in Halifax is about 6 hours away by car.
For more than 25 years, FFG Umwelttechnik has been developing, producing and selling innovative, technologically sophisticated bodies for suction and flushing vehicles.

KG.
The company based in Flensburg stands for tradition, quality and flexibility. In addition to the series and standard versions, FFG Umwelttechnik offers the right solution for every special area of application with optional system designs. The constructions of FFG Umwelttechnik are characterized by a high degree of individuality and flexibility.
