About Emico Technologies Inc.

EMICO is an industry leader in Original Equipment (OE) emissions and exhaust systems for on- and off-highway applications. Our expertise is also utilized to serve the automotive aftermarket offering a full range of direct and universal catalytic converters, mufflers, resonators and pre-bent pipe assemblies.

EMICO supplies a wide range of Tubular and Welded Assemblies for a wide variety of markets. With expertise in tube bending and forming, produce Rollover Protection Systems (ROPS) and Occupant Protective Systems (OPS) as well as steering control Levers, brush guards, push-bars, light bars and racks.

Our manufacturing system is a modern catalytic converter assembly line equipped with automatic welding machines, employing robotics and other types of automation. The line uses dedicated tooling for particular models, rigorously controlled process parameters and well-trained people to ensure the consistent quality of our products. This approach applies to all the products we manufacture.

Our facilities are ISO9001:2000 certified with top of the line quality control systems.

HISTORY

EMICO was established in Barrie, Ontario, Canada in 1996 as a spin-off of a Volkswagen Canada plant, which had existed in Barrie for approximately 15 years. One group of products manufactured at this VW plant was a family of automotive catalytic converters for Original Equipment (OE) production and service needs. EMICO purchased from VW Canada all the production equipment, tooling, Q.A. gauges, parts and materials inventory to continue production of these catalytic converters. EMICO initially only supplied OE catalytic converters to Volkswagen but has since broadened its coverage to include OE replacement catalytic converters to the aftermarket and other specialty OEM customers.

EMICO designs, tests and builds converters to extremely high standards, to ensure top performance and outstanding durability. Our manufacturing system is a modern catalytic converter assembly line equipped with automatic welding machines, employing robotics and other types of automation. The line uses dedicated tooling for particular models, rigorously controlled process parameters and well-trained people to ensure the consistent quality of our products.

Located in Milton, Ontario, Canada, WHITMAN MANUFACTURING was founded in 1989 and jointed forces with EMICO in 2014. The operation remains a forerunner in the automation and design of various processes and products for the production of emissions, exhaust and related components for manufacturers and OEMs as well as the automotive aftermarket.

The Milton operation is now headquarters for all EMICO processes, including all tooling and manufacturing processes; also all the former Barrie processes, with the ability to custom design and built equipment and tooling in the on-site tool & die machine shop. The Milton operation has also established a reputation as a tooling equipment supplier to other manufacturers with a specialty in metal forming and welding. Some of the industry segments served include seating, exhaust, emissions, telecommunications, storage and stampings.

As EMICO moves forward, we have amalgamated all our company services into the Milton location, allowing us to streamline timelines and processes, which in turns helps our efficieny, and assists customers and their time-sensitive requirements.

Notable

DIESEL
EMICO offers Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC's), catalytic converters designed specifically for diesel-powered applications, for passenger cars and pick-up trucks. DOC's remove up to 90% of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons. It can also reduce diesel particulate matter by up to 30%, although the typical range is 8-10%. EMICO supplies both Direct and Universal Fit DOC assemblies.

duracatlrDuraCAT™
The DuraCAT™ converter design is available with an EPA compliant ceramic substrates and the DuraCATPRO™ features an EPA compliant ACAT high-flow metallic substrate. These are available in 4” and 5” diameter with 4” to 9” in substrate length and multiple catalytic loadings loads for a variety of emissions needs.

The DuraCAT™ design of converters use a spun-form 409-stainless steel housing that eliminates all welding to reduce leaks and cracks. The smooth interior transitional surfaces improve gas flow in and out of the converter. DuraCATPRO™ High-performance units feature a unique free flowing herringbone style metallic substrate for high efficiency and durability in demanding environments. An industry only feature is an internal thermal insulating mat to reduce surface temperature and radiant heat normally associated with high-performance converters.

5starFive-Star™
Five-Star™ Converters match modern original production converter design offering improved design compared to most aftermarket converters on the market. EMICO utilizes an end-cap design instead of the outdated clamshell design often seen in the aftermarkets. This design eliminates sharp edges found in clamshell construction and reduces the amount of welding and leakage points.

Using only quality 409-stainless steel, the Five-Star™ line of converters offers a wide option of inlet/outlet dimensions and design in both oval and round units.

PERFORMANCE
The bulk of our product offerings (approximately 70%) consist of custom designed muffler and exhaust components for the OE manufacture of small engine related equipment—turf care, APU and generator. Emico has over 250 unique application designs that have been created from a universal template of existing components. This allows for the flexibility of customization with the oversight and focus of Lean Manufacturing. Our products are designed with consumer needs in mind, and our unique standardization of internal components allows for:

- Quick turn around of prototypes and production

- Lower inventory of raw material, WIP and finished goods

- Specialized custom solutions with manufacturability

- Proven process and product with engine manufacture certifications
