Blackline Safety opens doors to newly-renovated HQ, prepared for global demand in connected safety

Growing global demand for Blackline Safety’s cloud-hosted safety wearables has spurred the company to renovate Calgary’s historic Dominion Bridge building. This 25,000 square foot facility once manufactured steel products to support Alberta’s early economy. Freshly renovated, Blackline is breathing new life into this location with a focus on product development, sales, manufacturing and delivery of safety technology to a broad range of industries around the world.
 
Justin Mayerchak, Senior Vice President & Partner at Colliers International in Calgary said, “In a market where inner-city vacancy sits north of 20% and business optimism remains stubbornly low, Blackline Safety is helping diversify the local economy by employing highly skilled professionals designing industry-leading IoT solutions, including web software, embedded firmware, and electronics manufacturing in order to build better safety products designed to protect lives in the industrial and commercial sectors. In its Ramsay-based facility, Blackline Safety has the space needed to grow its hi-tech manufacturing and 24-hour client monitoring, in an environment reflective of the organization’s dynamic corporate culture. Blackline is a great example of the entrepreneurial spirit and technological expertise the city of Calgary should be known for. We are proud to be Blackline’s partner on this journey.”
 
“Blackline searched the city for over a year to locate the ideal character space that represents our corporate values of integrity, trust, customer commitment and mastery of innovation,” said Kevin Meyers, Chief Operating Officer at Blackline Safety. “With over 140 personnel under one roof, our bold new facility blends historical elements with the space and infrastructure needed to develop leading technologies while fulfilling customer demand. Our new location in Dominion Bridge establishes our presence in Calgary as an employer of choice, to attract additional talented, passionate and driven individuals who are looking to make their mark with a global leader in safety.”
 
Blackline develops and manufactures connected safety wearables in-house and serves a broad range of global industries including energy, utilities, manufacturing, aerospace, heavy industry, pharmaceuticals and foods and beverages. Blackline’s G7 product line offers the world’s only cellular-connected wearable that addresses lone worker monitoring, gas detection, emergency response and evacuation management while helping businesses increase efficiency through easy communications and location-enabled data analytics.
