Rheinmetall Canada is a proud member of Germany’s Rheinmetall Group, a market leader in the areas of environmentally friendly mobility and threat-appropriate security technology. Rheinmetall Defence is Europe’s foremost supplier of army technology and a longstanding partner of the armed forces.

With approximately 275 employees at locations in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Ottawa, Rheinmetall Canada has demonstrated expertise in the development, integration, and production of platform-independent systems for close to 30 years.

As an established player in the Canadian defence industry, Rheinmetall Canada offers innovative solutions for vehicle integration and air defence, as well as weapon, surveillance, and electronic systems for naval and land applications. We also customize systems to the evolving operational needs of military forces in Canada and on selected international markets.

In addition to contributing as a contractor on key programs for the Canadian Forces (repair and overhaul of Leopard 2 A4 training tanks, 40 mm close area suppression weapon, MASS multi ammunition softkill system for the Halifax Class modernization), Rheinmetall Canada has been awarded in 2015 the medium-range radar and integrated soldier system projects contracts by the Canadian government. Rheinmetall Canada is also a proud member of Textron’s successful tactical armoured patrol vehicle team.

The focus on exports will include: soldiers systems, weapon stations, surveillance systems, and robotics. Exports aside, Alain Tremblay, Vice-President Business development and Government relations, says “Our focus is on remaining a partner of choice for the Canadian Armed Forces… and that’s really a long-term relationship we are trying to establish.”

Rheinmetall Canada’s innovative products, its significant industrial and engineering presence in-country, and its flexibility to team with external partners all constitute a solid foundation for future growth.
