Exploring the unknown
in a fast-changing world

The expansion of Canadian seismic equipment and data company Nanometrics into frontier markets shows how being prepared to react under pressure can have an impact on the world that goes far deeper than business.

Far below the surface, the Earth is in constant turmoil. To listen to and learn from the forces at play in this unknown world is to be able to understand and react to events as soon as they occur.

Nanometrics is in the business of saving lives. Each year, earthquakes kill nearly 13,000 people around the world, and affect 5 million more. The Ontario-based company’s frontline technologies help lessen that impact by providing early warnings of natural disasters — giving local authorities more time to put emergency measures into action.

Established in the mid-1980s, Nanometrics quickly demonstrated high-growth potential. Responding to global market pressures, senior management decided to shift its core offering to become both a supplier of precision instruments and a trusted advisor for seismic researchers everywhere.

Like Nanometrics, many other Canadian companies have grown their business by selling their products or services outside our borders.
