Jannatec continues its long-time relationship with NORCAT in developing and testing products at the NORCAT Underground Centre


Jannatec Technologies, a leading provider of safety and communications equipment to the mining industry, are expanding the testing and demonstration capabilities of their solutions in a proven mining environment very close to home. Jannatec is happy to announce the opening of their new office at the NORCAT Underground Centre.

Earlier this year, NORCAT, a leader in skilled labour training and development and the “one-stop-shop” for all that is the future of mining technology and innovation, opened the NORCAT Underground Centre in Onaping, where companies like Jannatec can test and develop mining products.

Jannatec and NORCAT have built a long-standing relationship. “Currently, Jannatec’s main office is housed at NORCAT on Maley Drive, and we look forward to expanding our relationship with an office at the new Underground Centre. The opportunities this will provide are numerous and exciting,” says Jannatec’s Operations Manager, Sheila Robinson.

She adds, “This expansion will allow Jannatec to support our large local and regional client base while continuing to develop products that we hope will serve to enhance safety in the global mining industry for years to come. We are thrilled to be part of the larger mining community being built here.”

Jannatec continues to build on the success of their JAWS proximity detection platform and flagship product the G3T radio cap lamp, and our other safety products, such as their new and innovative ENSO SmartHelmet.

“Jannatec has been a long-time partner of NORCAT, and we are proud to grow our relationship with their new location at the Underground Centre. The centre is providing mining technology companies like Jannatec with the opportunity to test and develop products in an operating mine while showcasing them to potential customers,” added Carole Charron, Assistant Manager – Operations and Technology Testing at the NORCAT Underground Centre. “For over 25 years, Jannatec has provided the mining industry with equipment that keep our mines safe, and we look forward to seeing the growth and success of their new products, like the SmartHelmet.”
