Zirconium Consultancy Services is a diversified business group with interests in Engineering, Accounting, Recruitment and Immigration solutions. Our focus on Innovation and Intrapreneurship and our reliance on the latest technology for managing our business divisions have helped us remain a lean and effective organization resulting in our rapid growth.
In the Beginning
The firm’s initial business activities were centered on its role as a vendor for automotive tier 1 suppliers serving as an extension of their plant process engineering teams. This led the firm’s associates to witness numerous hazards that machine operators running equipment in these factories were exposed to on a daily basis. Among the first in the Industry to recognize the critical need for turnkey safety services, ZCS launched a safety engineering business which provided end to end solutions to manufacturing plants and machine builders making equipment safer for machine operators and compliant to local safety standards.
This combination of manufacturing process improvements and turnkey safety solutions, managed by an exceptional team of engineering specialists, helped increase ZCS sales over 500% in its second full year of business.
Following on the heels of this recognition, ZCS launched a major expansion program in 2011-2012. This included setting up a second engineering office in Newmarket, Ontario and signing a long term agreement with an Indian solutions provider to set up a third managed engineering office in Gurgaon, India. This resulted in a large increase in operating capacity translating into further growth in revenues of about 100% in 2012.
ZCS is now serving over 100 customers in Canada and the USA and continuing to add new customers each month while ensuring continuously improved and new service offerings are made available to our existing customer base.
Zirconium Consultancy Services Mechanical Engineering Solutions Inc. is the sales manager firm for ZCS AKIA Engineers.
In May 2014, ZCS launched a new Recruitment and Immigration solutions business. The company will recruit qualified candidates from India, China, Bangladesh, Srilanka and Nepal and connect them with employers in Canada looking for those skill sets. All immigration and visa processing applications for these candidates will also be completed by in-house ICCRC registered immigration consultants.
Looking towards the Future
For 2015, ZCS anticipates continued expansion in response to an ever-increasing need for its engineering services and newly launched recruitment and immigration solutions. Several new office locations in Canada and USA are in the works over the next 3-5 years.
ZCS service goals are still predicated on its ability to stay ahead of the technology curve in all its business divisions, constantly innovate to reduce cost and increase efficiencies and focussing on improving the overall customer experience.
