Our Values

At ZTR we're customer inspired. We're committed to delivering an exceptional customer experience by consistently applying the principles of trust, partnership, expertise, and a proven reputation – knowing that our employees are the key to our success.

It Begins with a Legacy

In the mid-1980’s five coworkers suggested an idea for a new product that was ultimately rejected by the company they worked for. Fuelled with determination and armed with innovation, this group founded ZTR Control Systems in London in 1987. 

Today, our global high-tech company continues to develop new and innovative solutions for off-road industrial equipment markets, specifically in Locomotive Modernization and Industrial Internet of Things (IoT). The Railway division is recognized as Locomotive Modernization Experts, providing solutions to improve the performance and reliability of aging locomotives. The Industrial IoT division provides intelligent remote equipment monitoring for many markets including construction rental equipment, oil & gas and railway.

Innovation is where we began and it’s the thread that joins us today. Every employee is encouraged to think creatively and this approach is what provides ZTR with a competitive advantage.

Intelligent Strategic Leadership

At ZTR, we do a lot of things really well. That starts with listening. We listen to customers and create solutions and products that fill a need in the many industries we serve. We lead where others follow. We’re proactive.

Trust is earned. We know our industries and we start with our own proven technology. It’s about innovating and creating opportunities, not just for our company, but for yours too. By understanding industry challenges and specific customer needs, we deliver exceptional and unique solutions through expert knowledge, professional services and quality products.

We have been fortunate to be recognized with numerous awards, including the London Chamber Large Business of the Year, the Ontario Large Business of the Year, one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies and most recently, we were presented with the London Economic Leadership Award from the City of London and the London Economic Development Corporation.
