Fortress Technology
Equipment manufacturer celebrates milestone, continues headquarters expansion.


TORONTO — Fortress Technology is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month. The manufacturer of industrial metal detector solutions for food, consumer goods, textile, paper and pharmaceutical solutions exists across three manufacturing facilities and employs more than 225 people.

“We have achieved this milestone through the hard work and dedication of our employees, our distributors and the support of our customers,” said Steve Gidman, president. “It’s been an incredible journey for our business, and we are looking forward to the next 20 years.”

The company began construction on an expansion of its head office in Toronto in December 2016. The addition will more than double Fortress’s current manufacturing and office space, bringing it to more than 52,000 square feet.

“A big thank you to our valued customers and strategic partners,” Mr. Gidman said, “but especially to those who had faith in Fortress from the very beginning.”
