EcoBloc, a Newfoundland and Labrador-based technology company, will start manufacturing its rodent exclusion product in Corner Brook, NL, this spring/summer.
“I grew up in Corner Brook. I know we have talented people living here and away who would like to return home for the right opportunity,” said Jason Trask, CEO of EcoBloc.
EcoBloc’s military-grade technology uses ultrasonic sound to keep mice, rats and other rodents out of buildings, stopping the problem before it begins. The company started at the beginning of the global pandemic and has clients in Canada, the
United States, Australia and Hong Kong.
“We are thrilled with the results our early clients have experienced - more than 99.99% efficacy,” said Mr. Trask. “We are currently talking with some of the biggest companies in the world about adopting our technology globally.”
EcoBloc has been in discussions with Navigate manager Allison Rowe for the last several months looking for ways to collaborate.
“Navigate is very eager to support this exciting business venture right here in Western NF," said Ms. Rowe. "We look forward to working with EcoBloc over the coming months to help them further develop and grow their business and are excited to welcome them at the new Business Incubator and Makerspace located at the new Centre for
Research and Innovation in Corner Brook.”
