Our History

Innovation, Integration and Experience: About Latec Machine Control

Latec Machine Control was formed in 2021 from two leading businesses in machine control, Latec Instruments Inc. and Machine Control Supply.

Latec Machine Control brings the expertise, experience and innovation of both companies together under the ownership of Rob McIntosh. Rob co-founded Machine Control Supply in 2013 and had been the long-standing General Manager for both companies.

Under his leadership, Latec Machine Control will continue to provide construction, agricultural, surveying and recreation professionals with cutting-edge machine control systems.

Latec Instruments Inc. was started in 1994 as a high-quality niche designer and manufacturer of laser and machine control systems. The company specialized in the design, manufacture and distribution of specialty laser and machine control solutions for levelling and alignment applications.

As a specialty niche manufacturer, Latec Instruments Inc. also sought out customers that had a unique need whereby laser and/or a machine control may solve a problem or provide a solution.

The company’s main geographic market region was (and still is) North America and globally, with developing customer sales.

Founded in 2013, Machine Control Supply Company (MCS) specialized in high-quality, low-priced after-market cables, hydraulics, brackets and mounts. The company also manufactured custom, made to order cables designed specifically for customer’s needs.

With a head office in Ontario, MCS operated a U.S. based warehouse to reduce freight, eliminate border issues and expedite shipping to get the products to customers in the USA.

Our flagship ice rink resurfacing solution is used by major ice facilities across Canada and the US as well as globally. The Level Ice system is custom fit to top tier ice resurfacing machines. The control system and automated precision blade control delivers consistent level ice and energy, water and time savings over conventional ice maintenance.
