Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc. manufactures specialized products for some of the most demanding customers in the world. Omni-Lite components are used in the automotive industry, by large defense contractors in the U.S. and NATO, and in the highly competitive world of athletics.
The company was founded in Calgary by David Grant in 1992. Starting in the front room of his home, David began by manufacturing spikes used in sport shoes. The track product developed was so successful that Omni-Lite spikes are now used on 90 percent of all track shoes in the market.
The gold coloured Nike shoes worn by Michael Johnson, the 1996 Olympic gold medalist in the 200 and 400 metre events, had Omni-Lite spikes. Adidas and Reebok are also customers. Today, the high-tech engineering and fabricating company manufactures more than 65 individual components, ranging from transmission parts to lilitary components. These micro-components are manufactured to precise standards, incorporating many processes unique to Omni-Lite. The company already has four patents and three more are pending.
Omni-Lite Industries has been recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in Alberta, with a solid financial footing. One of the strengths of the company is that David and his expert staff are co-equals on the shop floor. What matters most is finding the best solution to a customers needs, ensuring the hightest standards of perfection, not a person's job title.
The market has shown great confidence in David Grant and his team. Customers often seek out Omni-Lite to make components for them. A majority of the company's main suppliers are also shareholders in the firm, as are most of the employees. These synergies are fueling enormous growth for Omni-LIte Industries Canada Inc. The company has new products coming out almost monthly and David Grant is eagerly looking to take on new entrepreneurial challenges.
