RMT Equipment Moves Headquarters to Blainville, Quebec
RMT, a leading North American distributor of onboard weighing and backup camera systems specially built for heavy equipment, has opened its new 6,000 sq. ft. head office and warehouse facility in Blainville, Quebec, near the international transportation hub of Montreal.
Designated as the North American headquarters for global manufacturing including VEI Loader Scales, TRACK-VISION Safety Backup Camera Systems, SciTronics belt scales and metal detectors, and BRT onboard truck scales, the Blainville facility integrates a wide range of resources for parts and service support, factory training and product development.
“The new RMT head office increases our warehousing space for products and parts inventories to three times our previous capacity,” says Company President Marc Lefebvre. “It is the perfect home for the most complete product line for in-motion accuracy and safety on heavy equipment machines.”
The new location features a fully equipped training center with hands-on learning and interactive media for dealers and customers and its modern interior design provides natural lighting and lines of site for easy interaction amongst RMT’s head office team.
“Our new home prepares RMT to support the continued growth of opportunities for new dealers and new products,” says Hugo Lariviere, VP Sales & Operations.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
