Vention named as one of Canada's Top Growing Companies

Accelerating manufacturers' growth and competitive advantage with industrial automation and robotics through Vention's Manufacturing Automation Platform

Vention, the leading digital manufacturing automation platform (MAP), is pleased to announce its rank, 45 out of 430 companies, on the 2022 Report on Business ranking of Canada's Top Growing Companies.


Canada's Top Growing Companies ranks Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth. Vention earned its spot with a three-year growth of 964%.

Since 2016, Vention has empowered high-mix manufacturers to implement industrial automation through cloud software and a modular hardware ecosystem. The self-serve platform combines a suite of easy-to-use engineering software and plug-and-play automation components, enabling manufacturing professionals to design, order, and deploy automated equipment by themselves directly from their web browsers. The single-platform approach to the design-to-deployment workflow cuts the usual project time from months to days, enabling clients to benefit from industrial automation much sooner than with traditional approaches.

"Today's manufacturers face significant challenges with labor shortage, salary inflation, and re-shoring of production in North America. More than ever, manufacturers need automation and are willing to try new innovative approaches to get started," said Etienne Lacroix, CEO of Vention. "In the past 6 years, Vention has not only upskilled manufacturing professionals as automation practitioners but has also helped North American and European manufacturing businesses stay competitive at the global level."
