Agri-Food

Ready's expertise in the agri-food industry ranges from large expansion projects to day to day local support and troubleshooting of automation and electrical systems.

Agri-food encapsulates a wide spectrum of industries, from the many facets of agriculture to finished consumer food and beverage production. With the food and beverage manufacturing industry representing the province’s third largest manufacturing sector and placing Alberta as the third largest producer and exporter of agri-food products in Canada, it comes as no surprise that this is an increasingly competitive market dominated by automation, robotics, overall efficiency improvements, and reliability advancements that allow producers to gain every advantage. Ready brings our proven track record for project management, execution, and automation understanding to these industries to allow our customers to achieve and maintain their competitive edge. Our experience and expertise range from greenfield facility design to retrofit integration, and our expertise in control system modernization allows the incorporation of more efficient technologies and application of your electrical and control systems. The most important thing at Ready is you, our customer, and we work with you to develop a customized solution that meets your needs and addresses your concerns – there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach here.
