Blackline Safety Corp. announced that it has expanded its manufacturing capacity at its Calgary headquarters. The expansion is expected to increase Blackline’s production capacity by 30 to 50 per cent.

The company says its global customer base has grown to to 1,800, with 150,000 workers protected by the company’s safety wearables across North America, Europe, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

Demand for Blackline’s real-time connected safety technology has grown an average of 30 per cent over the last year, while product rentals rose 214 per cent and the company’s cartridge line saw 165 per cent growth.

“Amid the rising demand for our products, the expansion enables us to assemble increased volumes of products onsite and maintain Blackline’s industry-best lead times for order fulfillment,” said Kevin Meyers, COO, Blackline Safety, in a statement. “Our customers depend on Blackline to keep their workers safe, and we are committed to ensuring product availability and reliability to meet the needs of our growing user base as we transform the industrial workplace through state-of-the-art technology.”

Blackline’s expanded manufacturing area now spans more than 11,850 square feet on the main floor of its headquarters – a 49 per cent increase in space. The company says the repurposing was made possible due to space being freed up as a result of more employees choosing a hybrid work model, and by moving the company’s development facilities to the building’s second floor.
