Innovair Automation was born out of the incorporation of FERO Robotics (established 2011) into the Innovair Group of Companies in 2015. Founder James Fedirchuk has been working with robots since the mid-2000’s, starting his own robot integration company as a result of his experience in the marketplace. Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, we have grown every year since and are now the longest-standing robot integrator in Western Canada.

Our Expertise

At Innovair Automation, we sell, install and service robots, fixtures, positioners and plasma cutting systems. With a focus on the development of automated welding cells for small- and medium-sized businesses, along with an eye for proper weld techniques, Innovair Automation has become a well-respected integrator of robot weld cells in the Prairies. We are an ABB authorized partner and also a FANUC authorized integrator. We distribute ALM Postioners and Hypertherm-powered AKS cutting systems.
