DICA was established in 1983, by company founder Guenter Grabe, as an electronics contract manufacturer for many early stage technology companies in the Ottawa area. Since that time, DICA has employed a customer-first strategy to realize steady and consistent results for over a quarter century. By focusing on providing high quality electronic assembly services for the small-to-medium volume market, in a responsive and flexible manner, DICA’s success story runs counter to many of the manufacturing woes experienced in Ontario.
From the original staff of 4, DICA has grown to over 75 employees at its Carleton Place facility, and has been twice named one of Ottawa’s fastest growing companies by the Ottawa Business Journal, in 2008 and 2009. By constantly investing in new technology and adding capacity, DICA has been able to attract and retain some of the most successful Ottawa area technology companies, providing a manufacturing platform that has allowed them to leverage their own growth opportunities along the way. By servicing such diverse industries as healthcare, industrial controls, security and digital imaging, DICA has successfully weathered three recessions and counting. The goal at DICA is to excel at customer service while maintaining an unparalleled level of quality. Our focus is on quality, service, responsiveness and flexibility is unparalleled.
