Additional Property Acquired to Enable Ongoing Growth

December 21, 2015

Battlefield has recently purchased a property on Link Road minutes away from our main plant. This property includes a small, clean ambulance center that will be converted to enable more room for overflow storage and possibly light assembly. The installation of our recently acquired CNC equipment at our main facility has begun to encroach our assembly and test area. For this reason along with the ever increasing demands from our customers for product development and increased production, we have begun a season of necessary expansion. This additional facility will provide us with a little more breathing room as we do our best to manage our growth.

Mr “W” Takes Delivery of Eurotech Stallion B750SL

September 24, 2015

Our George Wozny (affectionately known as Mr. W), has supported our company and our owners entrepreneurial efforts since 1987. He has been a crucial part of our team from the very beginning and today at 90 years young, his enthusiasm is infectious. Mr “W” was with us when we received our first CNC lathe in 1997 and he is “on the job” as our latest machine arrives 18 years later. We were delighted that he was on hand to receive our first EuroTech.

We are excited about the increased production capability this new advanced lathe will enable our firm. Here is a rundown of the key machine characteristics we are looking forward to tapping into:

1. Increased bar feeding capacity to 4” diameter enabling the efficient production of large parts

2. 23hp, 10,000rpm live tooling gives us the power and speed to mill both aluminum, stainless and hard steel efficiently.

3. High horse power main and sub-spindles will allow us to machine parts quickly and fully completed in one setup.

4. A full 6 inches of Y axis travel allows Battlefield to produce a much broader and more complex range of components.

5. Box-way X and Y slides provide the rigidity to handle tough materials with tight tolerances.

Haldimand - Norfolk MP Diane Finley Campaign Stop

September 23, 2015

Battlefield International was visited by Haldimand - Norfolk MP Diane Finley on September 22, 2015 while she was on her campaign trail. After a tour that included individual visits with staff members in the plant, Minister Finley spoke to all employees in our staff lunch room. Among other things, Minister Finley pointed out that the Conservative government has cut taxes for small business to assist manufacturing facilities like ours to remain healthy in difficult times while also fostering an environment that better enables new job creation. Our company has benefited through Minister Finley’s leadership and assistance over the past several years while she has been in office. She has assisted us in understanding and implementing all of the requirements to market our Canadian designed and manufactured products to the US military. Minister Finley made it clear that whether or not we vote for her, it is very important that all Canadians examine the competing party platforms and to get out and vote.

Oil Deaerator Introduction

January 13, 2014

When UAV’s must fly at certain altitudes and climates, engine oil can gas out and become difficult to pump within the engine system. In some cases; vapor bubbles froth out, inhibiting the critical flow of oil to the engine resulting in catastrophic engine issues during critical missions. By applying a predetermined and exact level of heat and vacuum to the engine oil directly before filling the UAV oil tank, with Battlefield’s deaerator, our customers are able to degas without damaging the critical chemical balance of the oil.

Battlefield Promotional Pen

November 15, 2013
