Intl. Minister of Trade Ed Fast Visits Lynch: Highlights Government Support for Canada’s Manufacturing Sector

The Canadian Minister of International Trade, the Honourable Edward Fast, Member of Parliament for Abbotsford, British Columbia and Brad Butt, the local Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for the Mississauga-Streetsville riding, visited Lynch Headquarters.

“(Lynch is) one of those companies that we, as a government, are so proud of”

Following a meeting with President Ernie Lynch, the company’s CEO/president, the Minister of International Trade was impressed with Lynch’s ability to export its products to over 50 countries. “(Lynch is) one of those companies that we, as a government, are so proud of,” he said, adding that most small to medium-sized enterprises are reluctant to make the leap to international trade. “Canadians are a cautious lot. For us to venture into something new, we need a bit of a nudge.”

Fast said that the government can help Canadian companies trade with international markets by putting in place policy framework agreements, which overcome barriers such as tariffs and red tape. “We want to make sure that when Canadian companies invest all over the world, those investments are secure,” he said. Along with the Minister, Lynch Fluid Controls was host to numerous media representatives including The Canadian Business Journal, South Asian Weekly, Polish, Italian media, as well as Mississauga News.

As written by the Mississauga Business Times – April 2012

Mississauga’s Lynch Fluid Controls Inc. has, for a quarter-century, been a North American leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of hydraulic motion control manifolds, and integrated hydraulic systems.

From its cutting-edge, 40,000-square-foot facility at 1799 Argentia Rd., Lynch supplies motion control to industries such as: automotive, aerospace, material handling, mining, logging, industrial, mobile equipment, plastics, medical, and even entertainment – from hit productions like Miss Saigon, the Phantom of the Opera, Cirque de Soleil, to movies like Terminator 2 and Universal Studios’ productions.

This kaleidoscope of business interests comes to a head in April when Lynch celebrates 25 years serving its growing list of customers.

“We sell into 48 countries, and have a goal of one hundred by 2020,” says president and CEO Ernie Lynch.

At present, exports account for approximately 30 per cent of the firm’s total sales, and Lynch is eager to up that to 80 percent by 2020.ISO 9001 and AS9100B certified, the Lynch Group of Companies is divided into Lynch Fluid Controls Inc. (manufacturing and distributing for mobile and industrial markets), and Lynch Dynamics Inc. (design and manufacturing for the aerospace and medical industries).

Lynch’s exclusive distribution arrangement with the Florida-based Sun Hydraulics – a leading designer and maker of high performance screw-in hydraulic cartridge valves, and manifolds – has been the backbone of its manifold manufacturing division. They’ve been able to take valve integration to a new level and are now suppliers to many well-recognized fluid power establishments and OEM’s.

“We’re the master integrator/distributor for Sun Hydraulics Corp,” explains Lynch.

“That’s a huge help, having that relationship with a publicly traded company on NASDAQ. “We’re also a certified manufacturing partner with Sun Hydraulics.”

Lynch provides complete and fully functional manifolds ready for the customer’s application – both from its standard product line, or customised to specifications.

Lynch’s support of the customer includes conceptualization, engineering, component selection, 3D modeling/design, machining, assembly, documentation and validation. They have a marketing department and re-seller location system in-house. Continue reading “Best in Business: Celebrating 25 Years!”
