Milestones On The Road To Innovation



Waycon was established by Dave Adaway and John O’Connell. The company’s initial equipment acquisition included a used lathe and milling machine. These machines were operated by the owners themselves in a leased 1,000 square foot facility.


Waycon secured its first significant contract with Toyota. The company was responsible for machining stalks used in Toyota’s wheel manufacturing process. Over the years, Waycon produced thousands of these units. However, the contract came to an end when Toyota introduced plastic as a replacement for metal.


Waycon begins manufacturing excavator conversions, guarding packages, and attachments for Woodland Equipment. This would be the start of a strong and loyal business relationship.


 Waycon achieved CWB certification, demonstrating its commitment to quality and adherence to industry standards. Presently, Waycon holds CWB certification in CSA 47.1 for fusion welding of steel and CSA 47.2 for fusion welding of aluminum.


 Waycon relocated to its current location at 275 Waterloo Ave, since then doubling its operational space.


Waycon secured a contract from NOV Inc. to manufacture pipe handling systems, skids, and deadline anchors. The company successfully produced numerous units to meet the demands of the contract.


Waycon was awarded a contract for the structural engineering, manufacturing, and installation of the first two CHIME telescopes for the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME).


Waycon has its Forestry Cab OSHA certified which opened the door to a partnership with Sennebogen. A Forestry Cab, plug and play setup, easy install, and bolts directly to the factory cab platform.


Waycon invested in cutting-edge machinery, including a Haas 4 Axis Horizontal Boring Machine Centre and a CNC Brake Press. Additionally, the company was honored with the prestigious Innovation Excellence Award, recognizing its commitment to technological advancement.


Waycon proudly celebrated its 35th anniversary, marking three and a half decades of providing exceptional manufacturing solutions.
