The firm has now installed  a fully automated roller gantry, customized cutter saw and expanded pressing system, it said in a statement on Monday.

"This type of automated equipment ensures we can keep up with the extra supply demands we're experiencing in this market,"said CEO Dirk Maritz. "Large mounted display screens eliminate the use of paper and extra travel in the shop, and our overall production speed increases significantly."

Established in 1974, Satellite was acquired by the group past summer.

Atlas specializes in designing and supplying roof trusses and engineered floor joists throughout Eastern Ontario.
