Company Description

Since 2004, JITECH has been offering leading-edge solutions to a diversified clientele seeking innovative, concrete and pragmatic solutions. Our firm, with presence in Canada, Mexico and United States, includes determined Steel Detailers and Engineers whose work revolves around five main fields: oil and gas, mining, material handling, metallurgy, and bridges. At JITECH, we look for original ideas by uniting people of different origins, educations, and sometimes different opinions. This combination of experiences gives rise to unconventional ideas that are often the basis of innovative solutions. JITECH encourages its employees to maintain a balanced life that leaves time for activities outside the office. This allows our clients to count on Engineers and Steel detailers who are energetic and enthusiastic and ready to face our clients’ challenges.
