SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Raven Industries announced that the company will be opening a new location near Regina, Saskatchewan, as Raven Applied Technology’s Canadian Headquarters. With significant capacity for machine production and 5 acres for testing, this new facility is positioned to be the central campus for precision and autonomous agriculture innovation, training and service for Raven Canada. The expansion within Western Canada solidifies Raven’s commitment to pave the way in autonomous farming on a global scale.
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. The Raven Canada Headquarters will open November 2020.
In addition to opening the facility near Regina, Raven is partnering with Economic Development Regina Inc. (EDR) as a part of the Investment Partnership Program (IPP). Through this program, Raven will provide resources to EDR’s Agriculture and Food Initiative to support Saskatchewan collaboration for agriculture throughout Western Canada.
