Raven will be opening a new location near Regina, SK as Raven Applied Technology’s Canadian Headquarters. This new facility is positioned to be the central campus for precision and autonomous agriculture innovation, training and service for Raven Canada.

Raven says the expansion within Western Canada solidifies the company’s commitment to pave the way in autonomous farming on a global scale.

“Establishing a headquarters for Raven Canada in Saskatchewan proves our dedication to this pivotal market,” said Brian Meyer, Vice President of Raven Applied Technology. “Our history with precision ag solutions in Canada has provided confidence that this location will be a catalyst for significant growth for Raven.”

Raven completed its acquisition of DOT Technology Corp., the Saskatchewan-based developer of the Dot Power Platform, in June of 2020. The new 21,000 sq. ft building will be at the forefront of autonomous support and innovation in Canada by being dedicated to assembling, manufacturing and testing Raven Dot Power Platforms. Located at 4 Industrial Drive West, Emerald Park, SK, the Raven Canada Headquarters will open November 2020.
