Kinitics Automation Limited | Richmond, BC


Kinitics Automation is based near Vancouver, BC with roots in the automotive and power-generation industry as part of Biperformance Development Corporation. During that company’s endeavours to develop a small and lightweight clutch actuator for its automatic and semi-automatic motorcycle transmission products, it became clear that conventional fluid power technologies could not produce the needed results; thus the first Kinitics Piston Pump was born.
