Fortress Technology is celebrating 20 years as a leader in the manufacturing of industrial metal detector solutions.  

Fortress metal detectors are used within a range of sectors including food, consumer goods, textile, paper, and pharmaceutical. Over the past 20 years, Fortress has steadily grown into one of the largest global suppliers with three manufacturing facilities, a dedicated team of distributors, and more than 225 employees.  

“We have achieved this milestone through the hard work and dedication of our employees, our distributors, and the support of our customers,” said company president, Steve Gidman. “It’s been an incredible journey for our business and we are looking forward to the next 20 years. A big thank you to our valued customers and strategic partners, but especially to those who had faith in Fortress from the very beginning.”

To continue to meet market demand after another impressive year of growth, Fortress began construction on a building expansion at its head office in Toronto, which will more than double the current manufacturing facility and office space to over 52,000 sq ft.

Fortress has always custom manufactured its equipment to suit customers’ needs, applications, and specifications, and offered a “Never Obsolete Commitment.” As part of this commitment, new technology is developed to be backwards compatible and complete support for existing systems with readily available parts and a global service team is always provided, ensuring Fortress customers can stay up to date with industry standards without having to purchase a new system.
